Reliance Jio on June 24 launched a new reasonable 4G smartphone at the RIL 44th AGM. With Google, Reliance Jio has established the JioPhone Next. The new Jio phone is intended at providing feature-rich applications at an affordable price, RIL Chairman Mukesh Ambani said during the 44th RIL AGM 2021.
“Jio has truly democratized digital connectivity in India by offering the highest quality, most affordable 4G broadband services in the world. Even so, India still has nearly 300 million mobile users who are unable to escape from inefficient and exorbitant 2G services because even a basic 4G smartphone remains unaffordable for these users. Therefore, an ultra-affordable 4G smartphone is essential to make India ‘2G-mukt’,” Ambani said.
Google and Jio teams have conjointly developed the JioPhone Next. It is a fully-featured smartphone supporting the entire set of applications from both Google and Jio. It also comes with support for Google Play Store through which users will have access to Android apps. Jio Phone Next is motorized by an extremely optimized version of Android developed especially for the Indian market.
JioPhone Next sale in India begins on September 10, 2021. Reliance Industries Chairman and CEO, Mukesh Ambani, at the RIL AGM 2021 said that the Jio Phone Next will be the most 4G smartphone, not just in India but worldwide. The pricing details will be announced in the coming days.
