Reliance Jio preview now open for Samsung J-series, LG 4G phone users

Reliance Jio preview to be open for Samsung, LG 4G phone users from Aug 20

Reliance Jio Preview is now open for some more Samsung 4G LTE (VoLTE-ready) phones. These include phones in Samsung's J-series. Meanwhile, the LG phones that qualify for the offer include: K332 (K7 LTE), K520DY (Stylus 2), K520DY, H860 (LG G5), K500I (X Screen), K535D (Stylus 2 Plus), LGH630D (G4 Stylus 4G), and LGH 442 (LGC70 Spirit LTE).

Reliance Jio's Preview scheme is now reportedly open for all Samsung and LG 4G-enabled phone users. The Preview scheme or beta that essentially includes unlimited access to Jio's Digital Life -- HD voice call, HD video call, apps, data and SMS -- for three months was previously open for select Jio partners and employees. 

According to IANS, "all customers of 4G smartphones of Samsung and LG will get an opportunity to test Jio services, thus bringing Jio closer to its dream of ushering in a digital revolution in the country." The report cites industry sources as having made the revolution.

It has however come to light that, the report may actually hold some merit after all. Umesh Upadhyay who is president and director media at Reliance Industries Limited is openly endorsing the report on his own Twitter handle. 

Moreover, sources have told India Today Online that Jio Preview will indeed be available to LG 4G phone users, but will continue to be available to only select Samsung 4G (VoLTE) enabled phones and not all, as being reported. Sources have also told India Today Online that the Preview scheme for LG 4G phone users will officially be available starting from Saturday, August 20.

We also reached out to one Reliance Digital Xpress Mini Store, but folks there did not have any information about it, for now. 

The Reliance Jio 4G services (beta) have been available to Jio's partners and employees since December last year.

The availability -- of Reliance Jio 4G Preview scheme -- was eventually extended to the general public. Jio has tied up with Samsung to offer its 4G Preview scheme on select handsets. These include the Samsung Galaxy A5 2015, Galaxy A7 2015, Galaxy A8, Galaxy Note 4, Galaxy Note 5, Galaxy Note 5 Duos, Galaxy Note Edge, Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 Edge, Galaxy S6 Edge Plus, Galaxy S7, and the Galaxy S7 Edge. Additionally, the scheme is also valid on Reliance's own Lyf-branded smartphones.
