The Jio Phone has been one of the most anticipated product launches in India this year. First announced at Reliance's Annual General Meeting earlier this year, it is a 4G and VoLTE enabled feature phone, but the main reason for the frenzy around it is that it is effectively free - the hardware, at least. Buyers will need to pay Rs. 1,500 as a security deposit, but that's refundable after three years if you return the phone and meet all the terms and conditions. Reliance started accepting pre-bookings for the smartphone in August with deliveries promised to begin in September.
