Jio marked its entry into the smartphone market earlier this year with the JioPhone Next. At its AGM last month, the company had hinted that it would build more 5G affordable phones in partnership with Google, though it did not give any further details about the same. Now, a new leak by developer Kuba Wojciechowski via 91Mobiles gives us our first look at what to expect from the Jio Phone 5G, which apparently will be named the ‘JioPhone True 5G’.

The leaks suggest the phone will feature a Snapdragon 480 chipset, 4GB RAM and dual cameras. The phone will also reportedly come with the model number LS1654QB5 and will be codenamed ‘ganga’.

The leaks originate from a firmware that powers the device and suggests the phone will come with 4GB LPDDR4X RAM, 32GB storage on the base model, as well as a ‘holi’ chipset, which is the codename for the Snapdragon 480. The phone will come with a 6.5-inch 720p display panel with 1600×720 and not a Full-HD one, adds the report. The Jio Phone 5G will have a 13MP main camera and a 2MP Omnivision macro camera. Other leaked specifications include an 8MP front camera and 5000mAh battery.

The above information is based on leaks. Jio is yet to confirm the existence of specifications of the Jio Phone 5G. We will have to wait a little longer to have more concrete details on the phone. Meanwhile, the 5G rollout from Jio and Airtel is expected to reportedly kick off in October.
