Panasonic has partnered with Reliance Jio to offer Jio Preview 4G SIM card for its smartphones. Reliance Jio 4G SIM comes with free unlimited voice calling and data services for 90 days. The offer was initially available for Reliance LYF smartphone users only. The company gradually opened up its services for other brands, starting with Samsung. This week, Reliance Jio 4G Preview was extended for all Samsung and LG smartphones with 4G capabilities.
Panasonic smartphone users will get complimentary access to Jio applications under the Preview offer. Reliance Jio apps include My Jio, Jio on Demand, Jio Beats, Jio Play, Jio Drive, and Jio Money. These come with unlimited access to movies, TV shows and songs in multiple languages. Panasonic 4G smartphone users can download MyJio app to avail the offer on basis of location and city. The Jio app will then generate offer barcode, which can be used to avail Jio SIM at a Reliance Digital or Xpress Mini Store.
“Panasonic was the first brand in India to establish a full range of LTE devices, all our 4G/LTE devices launched in 2016 are VoLTE enabled. At Panasonic, it is our effort to constantly understand and deliver on customer expectations. We feel that with the Jio Preview Offer, customers can experience different 4G services which are unique & driven by LTE technology,” Pankaj Rana, Business Head, Mobility Division, Panasonic said.

We conducted speed tests on Reliance Jio SIM card and the results were impressive. We noted that the service offers speed like no other right now. We could download Asphalt 8, which is about 75MB, in about 30 seconds. But remember, this is just a Preview offer and not many people are using the service as of now. The real test of Reliance Jio 4G will, however, be when it rolls out fully in the coming months.
