A major leak from a tipster has shown two new Jio smartphone models appear on BIS (Bureau of Indian Standards) certification website. A report also suggests that the smartphone can be launched at the annual Reliance Industries AGM event, which is scheduled for August 28.

Mukul Sharma, a tech creator, has shared a tweet where he revealed that the two phone models carry the designations JBV161W1 and JBV162W1. The listings highlight that the devices are being manufactured in Noida. Further, a report by Business Today has suggested that these 5G smartphones can be launched by the end of this month at the RIL AGM event, although there have been no confirmations of the same.
