JioPhone Next Advanced specifications, can get Qualcomm QM215 SoC, 13 megapixel single rear camera
JioPhone Next, the next entry-level Android smartphone designed by Reliance Jio in partnership with Google, was announced in June. The phone is expected to go on sale in September and it looks like its specifications have been leaked. JioPhone Next would run Android 11 (Go Edition) and would have a single rear camera, as well as an HD + screen. At Reliance Industries 44th Annual General Meeting (AGM) where the phone was first announced, Reliance President and CEO Mukesh Ambani said the JioPhone Next will be the most affordable smartphone not only in India, but in the world.
The specifications of the JioPhone Next were share by Mishaal Rahman, Editor-in-Chief of XDA Developers on Twitter, along with a screenshot of the phone’s splash screen that reads “JioPhone Next Created with Google”. The phone has the model number LS-5701-J and runs Android 11 (Go Edition). It can have a screen of 720 x 1440 pixels and be powered by a Qualcomm QM215 SoC. This is a 64-bit quad-core mobile processor with Qualcomm Adreno 308 GPU. It is designed for low-end devices and comes with a built-in Qualcomm Snapdragon X5 LTE modem that supports Bluetooth v4.2, GPS, recording video up to 1080p, LPDDR3 RAM and eMMC 4.5 storage.
Rahman also claimed that the JioPhone Next will get a single 13-megapixel camera on the back and an 8-megapixel camera on the front for selfies and video calls. Additionally, the phone would be pre-installed with “DuoGo” which may have low RAM optimizations. A newer version of Google Camera Go is also preinstalled on the phone with Snapchat integration.
Regarding the price, Rahman mentions that the companies are aiming for a price below $ 50, which suggests that the phone could cost less than Rs. 4,000 in India. It is expected to go on sale on September 10, but Jio has yet to share pricing.
