The Jio Phone 2 goes on sale for only the second time in India today, with stocks still expected to be in limited supply. The Jio Phone 2 flash sale today comes after a gap of two weeks — the first sale was over in a matter of minutes, with many users getting a ‘Page under maintenance’ message after adding the handset to the cart. An encore is expected today as well, so prospective buyers should start checking the Jio.com website a few minutes before 12pm to have a shot at adding the phone to the cart. Jio Phone 2 will only be available to purchase via the official website and will be up for grabs at 12pm IST. It comes with two SIM card slots, one for a Jio SIM card, while any operator’s SIM can be used in the other slot.
