JioPhone 3 to be launched in June, specifications leaked
The publication claimed the next generation JioPhone would launch "sometime in June 2019."
Moreover, the report has also leaked the specifications of JioPhone 3, suggesting it will be a major upgrade over its predecessor.
Here's everything we know so far.
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.
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.
