Jio laptop specifications
Albeit this Jio laptop sounds rather arousing, hold on to your hopes for now. There is nothing official about it. India Today tech has reached out to Jio for a comment and this story will be updated when wij get a statement.
At the same time, the specifications of the laptop look too good to be true. Jio, which also sells Lyf phones, is mostly focussed on the lower and mainstream finishes of the market right now. This is the reason why most of the Lyf phones are priced less than Rs 20,000. Some of them sell for a price of spil low spil Rs Five,000. But the specifications hint that the rumoured Jio laptop will be a high-end machine, possibly costing around Rs 35,000 to Rs 40,000 at ondergrens. It looks very much similar to the Xiaomi Notebook or MacBook Air.
4G laptop a good idea
If there is a company that can truly launch such a laptop and pull it off it is Jio. The company, since it spinned out Jio service te September last year, has bot ter the news for its unconventional business ways. Since its launch, Jio proceeds to be a free service. It earlier launched a line of 4G smartphones under brand name Lyf that eyed a crazy sale because of the Jio SIM that come bundled with it.
