As per the schedule announced by Reliance earlier for its free Jio Phone, which will support the 4G network, will be available to consumers in September.Ahead of the availability, the company has started the beta testing of the Jio Phone with Jio 4G network from August 15.The reports even suggest that those who pre-book the phone -- by submitting a copy of their Aadhaar card -- from the select retailers who are offering an early pre-booking option right now will get the phone between September 1 and September 4. Not, at least in the official stores associated with Reliance Jio.India Today Tech reached out to Jio and while we are yet to receive a formal statement, sources have confirmed to us that pre-bookings for the Jio Phone will start -- and haven't started -- as per schedule that is from August 245.At the same time, the company is preparing to pen pre-registration for the Jio Phone from August 24.
The Jio Phone is a feature phone, but, it is smarter than other feature phones in the market right now.
This is very similar to how RIL handed over free Jio 4G SIM cards to users -- before going live with its 4G services -- last year, but while its SIM cards were available to a broader audience, chances are the Jio Phone may have a very limited availability via beta channels.
