JioBook Laptop Launch in India Soon: To Introduce Sub-Rs 15,000

We have been hearing about a Jio laptop since last year and it seems like the launch may happen soon.

The purported JioBook appeared on BIS in the past and the latest report gives more details on its price tag and launch timeline.

A report by Reuters reveals that the JioBook will be priced around Rs 15,000 (~ $184) and will come with support for 4G.

The idea is to provide a laptop experience on a budget like the telco did with its affordable 4G-enabled JioPhone Next introduced last year.

We can expect a Snapdragon chip to power the laptop and the Windows OS to handle the software part.

To recall, earlier, the JioBook was expected to run Android with the possibility of the “JioOS” skin on top of it.

The JioBook is said to reach schools and government institutes this month and should be available for all in the next three months.

So, we can expect an official launch at the beginning of 2023. The 5G JioPhone is also expected to launch at the same time.

Shipments could reach hundreds of thousand units by March next year.
