Jio Book Specifications
The Jio Book laptop has an 11.6-inch HD display with a resolution of 1366×768 pixels. It is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 processor paired with Adreno 610 GPU for graphics. The chipset used is quite dated by today’s standards but considering the price, we can’t complain too much. The body of the Jio Book 4G is made of plastic and has the ‘Jio’ logo on the lid. We also see Jio written on the Windows button on the keyboard.
The Jio Book is equipped with just 2GB of RAM and the storage details are not clear at the moment. The laptop appears to be running a custom version of the operating system, called Jio OS. There is also an HD camera for video recording. There are some pre-installed apps, Microsoft Ad Browser and Jio Cloud PC support.
