It is also said to feature a hole-punch display design and thin bezels at the top and bottom. JioPhone 5G price in India may be aimed at attracting the masses. Moreover, the phone is said to sport an updated, modern design compared to Jio's existing hardware offerings.

According to a recent report by Counterpoint Research, the upcoming JioPhone 5G will be priced between Rs. 8,000 and Rs. 12,000. Jio is expected to wait for its 5G network to spread before it will start targeting a bigger base of mass market 4G smartphone consumers with its 5G smartphone.

“Further, at some point in 2024, Jio will also be compelled to launch an affordable 5G mmWave + Sub-6 GHz smartphone as the cost deltas between the two would have narrowed significantly from the BoM perspective,” the research said. Millimeter wave (mmWave) frequency bands, which are above 24 GHz, are capable of delivering extremely fast speeds, high throughput and low latency connectivity.
