Design and display

JioPhone 3 will feature a 5-inch touch screen display

Citing a Reliance Jio executive, Beetle Bite claimed that the JioPhone 3 will feature a 5-inch touchscreen display.

This will be a major improvement over the 2.4-inch QVGA horizontal display seen on the BlackBerry Curve-like JioPhone 2.

Notably, the bigger screen will help users enjoy streaming videos and watch live TV from Jio's own streaming services and other platforms like YouTube.

Camera

JioPhone 3 will also offer improved cameras

As per the leaked specifications, JioPhone 3 will sport a 5MP rear camera and a 2MP selfie camera.

This, again, comes as an improvement over the 2MP main camera and 0.3MP VGA front camera of the JioPhone 2.

Hence, with improved optics, JioPhone 3 would offer better video calling experience.
