New Jio Phones get BIS certification, tipped to launch soon



Reliance is reportedly gearing up to introduce a duo of Jio smartphones in the Indian market. Although official details about these upcoming devices are yet to be unveiled, they have seemingly obtained certification from the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) website, indicating a forthcoming launch. The eagerly anticipated Annual General Meeting (AGM) event by Reliance, scheduled for August 28, is likely to include an announcement about the new Jio Phones. These purported handsets are speculated to be powered by the Snapdragon 480 SoC, accompanied by 4GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage.


Leaker Mukul Sharma (@stufflistings) shared a screenshot showcasing the alleged BIS listing of the Jio Phones. According to the leaked information, devices bearing model numbers JBV161W1 and JBV162W1 received BIS approval on Friday, August 11. Despite disclosing the model numbers, the listing doesn’t divulge any specifications of the smartphones.

Reliance Jio has not divulged any specifics about the imminent Jio Phones launch. The 46th AGM of Reliance Industries is scheduled for August 28 at 2:00pm IST, and during this event, it’s anticipated that Reliance Jio Chairman Akash Ambani will unveil information about the Jio Phones.
