The new JioFi 4G LTE hotspot device, dubbed JioFi JMR815 is priced at Rs 999. At the time of publishing, the device was only available on Flipkart and was still unlisted on Jio's official website. It is already available for sale on Flipkart e-commerce online store.

Flipkart is also giving a no extra cost EMI to clients who buy the gadget using HDFC Bank debit/credit cards.

However, the new JioFi device comes only in black colour only.

Reliance Jio 509 postpaid plan offers unlimited free calls. The key highlight of the new JioFi device is that it touted to deliver download speeds of up to 150Mbps and upload speeds of up to 50Mbps. The JioFi JMR815 comes with a 10 Days replacement policy, 1 Year warranty for device and 6 months for accessories. This means the JioFi JMR815 device is designed and manufactured locally in India. The new wireless hotspot is the smallest and the cheapest of all but boasts similar capabilities as the other JioFi dongles. Jio, as always provides more internet data, in this case around 50% more data than what Airtel provides but there's a catch in Jio's postpaid plan as it requires you to deposit a Rs 600 security deposit but comes with unlimited SMS services.

The new JioFi model comes in a circular shape with physical power on/off buttons and WPS (Wi-Fi Protected Setup). There are also notification lights for battery, 4G, and Wi-Fi signal strength. Interestingly, customers were also provided with the same JioFi device at Rs. 999, without the free data and voucher benefits. However, to make audio calls one needs to install the Jio 4G Voice App on their phone. The device can also be used as portable storage if a microSD card of up to 64GB is installed.

As for the core features of JioFi JMR815, the dongle supports 32 connections, including one on USB. The charging time is pegged at 3.5 hours.

The device runs on ALT3800 Processor and supports FDD - Band 3, Band 5, TDD - Band 40. Apart from the device, JioFi retail box carries a Mi-Fi data card, adapter, USB cable, battery, manual and warranty card.
