Reliance Jio recently launched the
JioPhone Next, its entry-level offering in the smartphone segment. The Mukesh Ambani-led telco is now gearing up to enter the laptop segment in the country with an affordable offering.
Earlier this year, a XDA
report had revealed that Reliance Jio is working on a laptop, dubbed as JioBook. According to a MySmartPrice
report, the JioBook has now been spotted on Geekbench, revealing some of its specifications ahead of the launch.
In September, three JioBook models, NB1118QMW, NB1148QMW, and NB1112MM were spotted on the BIS certification site. Now, the NB1112MM variant has been spotted on Geekbench.
The JioBook with the model number NB1112MM will reportedly run on the MediaTek MT8788 chipset coupled with 2GB RAM. Instead of Windows, the laptop will run on Android 11-based JioOS.
The device scored 1178 points in the single-core test and 4246 points in the multi-core test. The MT788 chipset is an octa-core chipset with four performance cores and four power-efficiency cores.
Apart from this, the company is also expected to launch a model with the Snapdragon 665 chipset. The company is expected to launch the laptops in 2GB RAM + 32GB storage and 4GB RAM + 64GB storage variants.
The JioBook is expected to support 4G LTE connectivity and come pre-loaded with Jio’s suite of apps.
While there is no information about the JioBook’s pricing, we expect it to be priced in the affordable segment considering its specifications. It will likely be aimed at students and first-time laptop users.
We should know more about the JioBook in the coming days.
