Mukesh Ambani the owner of Jio platforms, and Google finally talked about their upcoming project, JioPhone Next. According to their claim, it is going to be the most affordable Android smartphone ever launched in the Indian market. With the help of this project, American giant Google, and the Indian top telecom operator, Jio is trying to spread their legs more in the world’s second-largest internet market, India.
Talking about the upcoming smartphone at the Reliance AGM, Mukesh Ambani said, ” 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. Last year Sundar… (Google CEO, Sundar Pichai) and I had talked about Google and Jio co-developing, the next generation, feature-rich, but an extremely affordable smartphone.”
Most of the features and the launch date have already been revealed in the summit, whereas the exact pricing remains the only thing that needs some lighting.
