According to the documents we reviewed, development on the JioBook began in early September of 2020 and is expected to continue through the first half of 2021. At the EVT, or Engineering Validation Test, stage of the product development cycle, the JioBook had unfinalized hardware, including a recycled keyboard that contained a Windows key, as seen in the live image below obtained by XDA. By mid-April, the product is expected to enter the PVT, or Product Validation Test, stage of the product development cycle, so its current design likely looks closer to the final hardware than what’s shown below. In particular, the Windows key will likely have been swapped with a key more fitting for the product and software, though we don’t know what it will have been swapped with.

Bluebank has tested several iterations of the JioBook during development, including a model with 2GB of LPDDR4X RAM paired with 32GB of eMMC storage and later a model with 4GB of LPDDR4X RAM and 64GB of eMMC 5.1 storage. Bluebank and Reliance Jio seem to be sourcing low-cost components from a variety of vendors, most notably Samsung for their combined mobile DRAM and NAND chip as well as Qualcomm for its Snapdragon 665. According to a list of components used for the PCB, the laptop may have a mini HDMI connector for video output, support for WiFi over 2.4 and 5GHz frequencies, Bluetooth, a three-axis accelerometer, and a Qualcomm audio chip.
