The report also revealed that the device runs on Jio, which is a modified version of Android OS. It was found to be equipped with 32GB / 64GB of eMMC 5.1 storage, an HDMI port, dual-band Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, an audio chip by Qualcomm, and a three-axis accelerometer. It is expected to debut with an affordable price tag.

In November, the alleged JioBook was found with specifications such as the MediaTek MT8788 chip, 2GB of RAM, and Android 11 OS on Geekbench. Earlier this year, a report revealed that there could be a Windows variant of the device. Hopefully, newer reports will soon surface with some concrete details about JioBook’s specifications.
