Reliance Jio has once again launched a new JioFi 4G LTE Hotspot router at Rs 999. The new Reliance JioFi variant dubbed as JMR815 is exclusively available at Flipkart. The highlights of the new device are circular design and a larger 3000mAh battery. The device comes with a one year warranty and can deliver up to 150Mbps of download and 50Mbps of download speed. The new Reliance JioFi device has already made its way to Flipkart and is listed under #OnlyOnFlipkart category which means it will be exclusive to Flipkart.
The device carries a “Designed in India” tag at the back and a Jio branding on the front. The device has a power button, a WPS button and a USB port for charging. There are notification lights for battery, 4G, and WiFi-signal strength. The earlier variants of JioFi featured oval-shaped design and the Rs 1999 variant has an OLED display too.
The device allows 31 users to connect via WiFi and one via the USB. The device also offers the HD voice and video calls via Jio 4G voice app on smartphones. It is powered by an ALT3800 processor and supports FDD-Band 3, Band 5, and TDD-Band 40. It also has a micro SD card slot which supports storage expansion up to 64GB. The 3000 mAh battery is rated to have a charging time of 3.5 hours. The original JioFi was launched with a 2,300mAh battery which is significantly low than the new one. The new dongle is not even listed on Jio.com and the company has not clarified any plans on the 4G dongle.
The latest Reliance JioFi model comes days after the company launched a new JioFi Rs. 1,999 offer under which it offers free data and voucher benefits worth Rs. 3,595. The company mainly brought the JioFi at Rs. 1,999 with bundled data worth Rs. 1,295 and voucher worth Rs. 2,300 from AJIO, Reliance Digital, and Paytm. Interestingly, you can buy the same JioFi device at Rs. 999, without the free data and voucher benefits.
