Jio Phone Next was announced at the 44th AGM Meeting back in June and went on sale for the first time earlier this month during Diwali. Customers were only able to purchase the phone by registering for it by visiting the nearest Jio Mart Digital retailer or Jio.com/Next or by sending a WhatsApp ‘Hi’ message to 70182-70182. However, that changes now as buyers can now purchase the phone through the Reliance Digital website and don’t need to register for the device. It is available for the same price online but there are card discounts.
Jio Phone Next price in India is Rs 6,499 for the single 2GB+32GB storage model. Reliance Digital website is offering up to 10 percent instant discount on Yes Bank credit cards and up to 7.5 percent off on American Express cards. The EMI option starts at Rs 305.93 per month. Jio is offering a one-year manufacturer warranty.
