Reliance Jio will shortly launch JioBook as  Jio is attempting to disrupt the laptop market with a 4G SIM-embedded laptop known as the JioBook, just as it did the Indian telecom market with a low-cost JioPhone. Jio has partnered with Qualcomm and Microsoft for the JioBook, according to a Reuters report. The laptop will reportedly run Windows OS and be powered by Qualcomm’s Arm-based processors.

Despite the fact that the report does not mention the specifications of the device, it does state that JioBook will initially be available to enterprise customers like schools and government agencies starting this month, with a consumer launch anticipated to take place within the following three months. The JioBook will be the same size as the JioPhone, according to a source cited in the publication.

The rumours that Jio was using a budget laptop have been making the headlines for a while. A MediaTek MT8788 or a Snapdragon 665 chipset may power the next laptop, according to prior rumours and leaks.

There have been rumours that it could include 32GB of eMMC 5.1 storage and 2GB of LPDDR4X RAM. It might support Windows 11 OS. Additionally, the laptop can include an LCD screen with a 1366 x 768-pixel resolution. JioStore, JioMeet, JioPages, Microsoft Teams, Microsoft Edge, and Office might already be preloaded on the smartphone.

Previous rumours about the laptop’s design have also hinted that Jio might not experiment with it and instead choose a standard model with wide bezels all around the display. There may be a mini-HDMI connector, dual-band Wi-Fi, 4G, and Bluetooth among the connectivity choices. Additionally, a three-axis accelerometer and a Qualcomm audio chip are believed to be included with the JioBook
