After cheap data and phone, Jio is now working on a low-cost laptop. According to the report, it can be launched as Geobook and it will work on Geo-OS. All the live apps will be pre-installed in the laptop and it is also being said that 4GLTE will be supported.
Earlier in the year 2008, a report said that Jio is working in the laptop segment. The laptop is expected to help the company reach customers beyond mobile phone users who are looking for budget-friendly computing devices.
Partnership with Chinese company
XDA developers said in their report that Jio has partnered with Chinese manufacturer Bluebank Communication Technology for the Geobook. The company is already making geophone models in its factory.
According to XDA Developers, it has gathered information from internal documents that the development of the Geobook began in early September last year and is expected to continue until the first half of 2021. The device is expected to reach the product validation test stage by April-mid. A picture has also been shared with it, which shows what the laptop will look like once it is fully ready.
It can be seen in the leaked image that the laptop also has Windows-key, but the device is not expected to run on Windows. In such a situation, it is expected that if Jio is really working on JioBook then the specifications will be different.
Possible specifications of Geobook
In terms of specification, XDA developers reported that the current prototype of the Geobook will feature a 1366×768 pixel resolution display and Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 processor, which will come with Snapdragon X12 4G modem.
According to the report, one model of the laptop has 2 GB of RAM and 32 GB of storage. Another model has 4 GB RAM and 64 GB storage.
Connectivity options may include a mini HDMI connector, dual-band Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth. It can get a 3-axis accelerometer and a Qualcomm audio chip.
GeoApps such as Geostore, Geomit and Geopages can be found pre-installed in Geobook. In addition, Microsoft apps such as Teams, Edge and Office can also be found in it.
Details about the price of the geobook have not been revealed. However, it is expected that the laptop may be available later this year under a budget segment.
