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.
