- ‘Jiophone-Next’ to be available from September 10
Mumbai. After the fierce competition in mobile service rates, now there can be a price war in the smartphone market too. Because Reliance Jio and Google’s new Android and Play Store based smartphone ‘JioPhone Next’ is launching in the Indian market from September 10. This was announced by Chairman Mukesh Ambani at the 44th annual meeting of the country’s top company Reliance Industries Ltd. held online.
Although he has not yet disclosed its price, but it must be said that our smartphone will be very cheap and this fully featured smartphone will be the cheapest smartphone not only in India but in the world. It has been made for the common man’s pocket and 10 From September i.e. Ganesh Chaturthi will start meeting across the country.
Chinese smartphone brands can also reduce prices
Reliance is looking at 300 million people in the country who currently have 2G mobile phones among the potential customers of its smartphone. It is clear from this that if this low-income segment has to sell its smartphone to Reliance, then it will also have to keep the price very low, which is likely to be kept less than Rs 5,000. When Reliance and Google sell their cheap smartphones in the market, it will definitely have an impact on the entire market and other smartphone makers will also be forced to reduce the price. Currently, Chinese brands dominate the smartphone market in India. Reliance Jio can create a big challenge for them.
What will be the features?
Reliance Jio’s new smartphone will be equipped with features and apps of Jio and Google. The operating system of this Android-based smartphone has been developed jointly by Jio and Google. The company hopes that on the basis of great camera, fast speed, good operating system and affordable price, the new smartphone of Jio-Google can fill Reliance Jio’s bag with crores of new customers. Users can also download apps from Google Play on the JioPhone-Next smartphone specially designed for the Indian market. The smartphone will also get the best camera and Android updates.
