The XDA report states that Jio has partnered with Chinese company Bluebank Communication Technology (BlueBank Communication Technology) to build JioBook. The company is already manufacturing JioPhone in its factories.
XDA Developers says it has gathered information from internal documents that the JioBook is being developed since early September last year with plans to launch it by the first half of 2021. The product validation test of this device is expected to begin by the middle of next month. A picture of the prototype of the JioBook has also been shared, giving us a glimpse of its design.
The leaked photo shows the laptop with Windows, but the device is not expected to run on Windows, so it may be that the final product design of the JioBook is somewhat different.
JioBook specifications (expected)
Talking about the specifications, the XDA Developers report states that the current prototype of the JioBook includes a Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 chipset and a Snapdragon X12 4G modem with a 1,366×768 pixel resolution display. The laptop has been tested in several variants and one of these models has 2GB LPDDR4x RAM and 32GB eMMC storage. There is also another model, which is said to include 4GB LPDDR4x RAM and 64GB eMMC 5.1 storage.
The JioBook may include a mini HDMI connector, dual-band Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. It is also said to be equipped with a three-axis accelerometer and a Qualcomm audio chip.
Jio can also include its native apps such as JioStore, JioMeet and JioPages in this laptop. In addition, it will reportedly also include Microsoft products such as Microsoft Teams, Microsoft Edge and Office.
There is currently no information shared about the price and availability of JioBook. However, the laptop is expected to be available later this year under the budget segment.
