JioPhone Next has been talk of the town for several days. The phone was supposed to launch on September 10; however, shortages of chipsets have forced Reliance Jio and Google to delay the launch of its much-awaited affordable 4G smartphone. The launch of the JioPhone Next is now said to take place during the Diwali festival which means November. On the other hand, fresh info has claimed the price of the JioPhone Next will be higher than expected.
JioPhone Next Price Could Be Higher Than Expected: Here’s The Reason
According to Economic Times, the price of the JioPhone Next might be higher than expected as the global chip shortage has increased the prices of components by 20 percent which could be the reason for Jio to increase the price. As of now, Jio has not shared any word regarding the price; however, rumors were suggested the phone will cost around Rs. 3,499.
The report further said that the ”Jio Phone Next might have a limited shelf-life before it starts focusing on new SKUs for the next year as components availability and price are likely to be formidable for the next 6-8 months.”
