Talking about the design, the new model is circular and features physical buttons for power on/off and WPS. It also comes with notification lights for battery, 4G, and Wi-Fi signal strength.
In terms of features, the new JioFi model allows you to make HD voice and video calls even if you are on 2G or 3G smartphones. However, to carry out such a call, you will be required to install the Jio 4G Voice App for audio and video conference calls. What makes the deal all the more lucrative is that the new JioFi comes with a 3,000mAh rechargeable battery, that is promised to offer connectivity for up to 8 hours. The charging time taken is 3.5 hours. In comparison, the first JioFi model packed a 2,300mAh battery.
Additionally, the new JioFi model supports multi-device connections and allows up to 32 users to connect with 31 on Wi-Fi and 1 on USB. With ALT3800 processor at its core, the new JioFi supports FDD-Band 3, Band 5, and TDD-Band 40.
It is worth mentioning that the company’s official website does not list this new JioFi JMR815 model. Instead, the previous model is available for purchase, priced at Rs 999. The same model is also listed with a price of Rs 1,999 as it comes with bundled data and voucher benefits.
