JioPhone will be available for pre-booking once again, confirms PTI. The second phase of country’s first 4G feature phone’s pre-booking could start post-Diwali.
In August, Reliance had to stop its pre-booking after a record six-million units were sold in the initial phase. “The second phase of JioPhone booking will start after Diwali. Likely from October-end or November first week,” a Reliance Retail channel partner told PTI.
