Finally, Reliance Jio’s most awaited phone has launched on 21st July 2017 at AGM. It is a feature phone named as Jio Phone. A couple of days ago, there were lots of rumours revealed online about this Jio mobile. Some report said that it would come under lyf brand. But the device has not come under the lyf brand. Mukesh Ambani has announced this Jio phone at an effective price. In this article, I will write about Jio Mobile Booking, online registration or pre-booking process, media cable etc. Just scroll down to know all details.
Jio Media Cable
This the best feature of the device, because you can enjoy Jio TV on your Television. You just need to connect Jio Phone using a Jio Media cable with LED/LCD TV. That’s it; enjoy Jio TV on the large screen. But to enjoy this feature you need to recharge with 309 monthly pack that gives 4-5 hours Jio TV streaming on your television per day. Also, you need to order the Jio Media Cable TV device separately which will cost around Rs 500.
Connect Jio Media Cable with LCD, LED, CRT TV
- First of all, buy Jio Mobile Phone at Rs 500

Jio media cable comes with two different adapters: RCA and HDMI. Also, it comes with its own power source that helps you to power/charge your Phone while transmitting contents from the Jio Phone to a TV screen.
Connect with RCA Adapter
If you have OLD CRT TV then you have to use RCA adapter to connect Jio Phone with the Television. Videos on CRT TVs appear in a 4:3 aspect ratio.
Connect with HDMI Adapter
If your TV supports HDMI port then you have to connect the Phone to TV with the help of HDMI adapter. The best thing is you can view content in HD (720p) if your TV is capable of rendering 720p videos. Videos appear in a 16:9 aspect ratio on Smart TVs.
