The JioPhone also comes with a 3.5mm audio-jack for plugging in your headphones. There is a microphone, a speaker and support for FM Radio. The device also comes preloaded with 22 Indic languages that it can recognise and the voice command feature on it can also be used in all those languages. You will be able to browse the internet also on the JioPhone at 4G speeds and on Jio network. The device also comes preloaded with Jio Apps on it. Made mandatory by the government, the JioPhone also comes with an SOS button. The company has also promised that the device will also come with NFC capabilities for digital payments as well as for casting content on a different screen.

JioPhone will be available for pre-booking starting 5:30 pm on August 24, 2017, on Jio.com. The device will be made available to the consumers that have pre-booked starting from the first week of September 2017.
