Reliance JioBook On Sale in India: Why This Budget Laptop is Different

Reliance, after entering the mobile phone market, expanded its presence further by making its debut in another product category.

The Mukesh Ambani-owned company launched its first laptop in India last week in the sub-Rs 20,000 segment.

This isn’t your usual Windows laptop though, or even a Chromebook, because it runs a custom flavour of Android.

The JioBook comes with an 11.6-inch display, giving it a very compact-sized body.

That display has an HD resolution of 1366×768 pixels and supports a standard 60Hz refresh rate.

Reliance has yet to provide any information about the screen’s brightness levels, though.

At the top of the display is a 2MP webcam housed within the top bezel to handle the video calling needs.

There’s also a SIM card slot on board and peripherals include two USB ports and a 3.5mm headphone jack.

Under the hood, there’s the mid-range, ARM-based Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 SoC backed by Adreno 610 GPU.
