Reliance Jio has quietly launched a new JioFi 4G wireless hotspot that sports an Oled display and an improved 2600mAh battery. It is currently being sold in few cities in India at a price of Rs. 1,999. Reliance Jio’s new JioFi is larger than its predecessor and sports a squarish shape with smooth edges. It comes with a sleek matte finish design, compared to the glossy egg-shaped original JioFi wireless hotspot. However the most notable difference is the Oled display packed on the top. The new Reliance Jio device shows whether the power is on/ off, the amount of battery life left, the 4G signal strength, and Wi-Fi signal strength. The company upgraded battery to 2600mAh compared to old JioFi had 2300 mAh battery.
One of the major downsides of the new JioFi 4G wireless hotspot is that is has reduced support from 31 devices earlier, to only up to 10 devices, though it should still be enough for most users. The new Reliance Jio JioFi continues to sport a microSD card (up to 32GB).
Just like original JioFi, it comes pre-bundled with Jio Welcome Offer, which allows you to use unlimited 4G data and voice calls. If you didn’t know, with JioFi, even the non-4G handsets could enjoy rich call experience and faster internet using Jio4GVoice app (formerly JioJoin) via JioFi device.
