In 2017, Reliance Jio announced the Jio Phone feature that came with support for 4G VoLTE. Currently, the handset is priced at Rs 699 (~$9). However, due to stock issues, it is easily available for purchase. Fresh information shared by 91mobiles reveals that it will be soon available for purchase easily. The only gripe is that its price will increase by Rs 300.

The publication revealed that the Jio Phone will soon be available with a price tag of Rs 999 (~$13). Reliance Jio is likely to make an official announcement on the price hike in the coming days. The publication has learned through its sources that the Jio Phone will be sold with a recharge pack of Rs 125 (~$2), which means the handset’s cost will shoot up to Rs 1,124 (~$15).

While some units of the Jio Phone were sold with Spreadtrum chipset, others were driven by Qualcomm’s chip. The images of the new retail packages of the JioPhone shows that all its units will be featuring the Qualcomm SoC.
