It comes after a successful run by Telco at low cost Geo Phone This has helped 2G feature phone users to move to 4G. News about the Geo laptop goes back to 2018 when Miguel Nunes, Senior Director of Product Management at Qualcomm Said The company is in talks with Reliance Jio to launch laptops with cellular connectivity. Almost three years later The Geobook price in India is affordable and the report also reveals key features and laptop design.

Geobook specifications may include the Snapdragon 665 SoC

The JioBook laptop may come with a version of the Android OS called JioOS, according to the firmware reviewed by XDA. Geo’s prototype laptop is running on Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 (SM6125), which will be re-announced in 2019. The chipset only supports 4G LTE (Snapdragon X12). For GeoBook, the company has partnered with Bluebank Communication Technology of China, an engineering company that develops mobile devices and software for third parties. The Bluebank website claims that the kiosks in its work are a popular OS for feature phones, including the Geo phone.

Geobook Features:

  • 1366 × 768 resolution
  • Snapdragon 665 chipset
  • 64GB eMMC 5.1 storage
  • Android 10

Geobook development resumed in September 2020 and may continue until the first half of 2021. During the engineering certification test phase, as seen in the live image of the laptop, the Geobook contains incomplete hardware, including a recycled keyboard with a Windows key. The laptop is expected to enter the PVT (Product Certification Test) by mid-April, which means the final design will look closer to it. However, the Windows key button must be replaced with another key. Also, the laptop’s firmware indicates that it has a 1366 × 768 resolution display but the screen size is not clear. During development Bluebank tested several iterations of the Geobook, one with 2GB LPDDR4X RAM and 32GB eMMC storage and the other with 4GB RAM and 64GB eMMC 5.1 storage.

Bluebank and Reliance Jio are sourcing low-cost components from a variety of vendors, including Samsung for DRAM and the NAND chip and Qualcomm for the Snapdragon 665. The laptop has video output, dual-band Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, a three-axis accelerometer and a Qualcomm audio chip. The laptop is said to be pre-loaded with multiple geo applications, including GeoMeet, GeoPages, Geostore and more. Interestingly, many Microsoft applications include pre-installed applications, including Microsoft Teams, Edge and Office. It is not clear whether the Geo laptop will be called a Geobook when it launches, but considering the company naming scheme (e.g. Geo Phone), this is a good option.
