Alternatively, buyers can opt for the Easy EMI option wherein users will have to pay Rs. 1,999 initially (plus Rs. 501 processing fees), and then pay the balance amount in easy EMI.

Reliance Jio has confirmed that the JioPhone Next can be purchased from Diwali, i.e., from November 4. To purchase the handset, users need to visit the nearest Jio Mart digital retailer or go the website and register. Registration can also be done on WhatsApp and users need to send a ‘Hi’ to 7018270182 to begin the process. Once the registration is complete, a confirmation will be sent to the buyer.
