Talking about the design of the Jio Dongle 2, it looks very much similar to any other Wi-Fi Dongle with a cylindrical shape and Jio written on the top. Unlike the JioFi though, this new dongle does not come with a built-in battery which means customers will either have to connect it to a power plug, or connect it to a computer. The dongle also comes with two led lights showing the status for 4G and Wi-Fi. The device is said to connect to up to 10 devices at the same time. The dongle comes with a model number Mobile Router JDR810. Reports further claim that the Jio Dongle 2 will come with the Jio app suite as well as a warranty card that will cover a time period of 1 year.
Earlier this month, Reliance Jio quietly launched a new JioFi 4G wireless hotspot that features an OLED display and an improved 2,600mAh battery for Rs 1,999. The device lets you connect to 10 devices at a time. Users can get a microSD card slot that supports up to 32GB along with HD voice calling using JioJoin app on Android phones.

The JioFi 2 hotspot router has also received a price drop and can now be bought for only Rs 1,999. The JioFi 2 can create a Wi-Fi hotspot and share the internet connection with up to 31 devices.
