The introduction of the Jio 5G phone with Google in India appears to be approaching, and there have been numerous rumours about the device. As Jio strives to introduce 5G to the public, the Jio 5G phone is believed to be an ultra-low-cost 5G phone. There have been reports about the Jio 5G phone price in India for several months.
Introduction: Jio 5G Phone with Google
Reliance Jio announced a partnership with Google to provide affordable 5G phones to India during last year’s AGM. The Jio-Google 5G phone has remained a mystery, but here are a few details we do know thus far.
The introduction of the Jio 5G phone in India is expected to take place on June 24th, during the Reliance AGM 2021. Although the business has not verified this, it makes sense given that the Jio-Google phone was first suggested at last year’s AGM. Starting at 2 p.m. IST, the Reliance AGM 2021 will be live-streamed on YouTube.
The Jio 5G phone price in India might be approximately Rs 2,500, according to previous reports. Millions of existing 2G feature phone customers will be able to upgrade to 5G with the help of the subsidised 5G phone. Jio would most likely pair its 5G phone with Jio 5G plans, though details on this are few for the time being. “Jio wants to sell the smartphone for less than Rs 5,000,” says the source.
When we ramp up sales, it might be priced between Rs 2,500 and Rs 3,000,” a firm executive told PTI in October.
According to reports from last year, Jio has requested local manufacturers to increase output and produce as many as 200 million Jio Android phones by 2021. This will most likely include Android phones with 5G and 4G capabilities. “It has been secretly working with assemblers on prototypes for at least two years and can bring a phone to market quickly, though it will likely miss the November Diwali buying season,” sources told Bloomberg in September.
According to reports, the next Jio 5G phone would operate on a customised version of Android. It’s unclear whether the gadget will run Android Go or an entirely new forked version of Android. We don’t yet know what this version of Android will look like, but it’ll likely be optimised for low-end phones with little RAM and storage, similar to Android Go.
The Android Go initiative was unveiled by Google as a solution to assist millions of feature phone users in growing markets like India in making the conversion to a smartphone. In this approach, both Google and Jio’s goals are organically aligned.
Last year, Jio signed agreements with Qualcomm, Intel, and Facebook, among others, in addition to Google. Jio hopes to build essential 5G equipment in the nation thanks to its cooperation with Qualcomm. Qualcomm’s 5G mobile chipsets, on the other hand, could be used in the future Jio 5G phone. The Snapdragon 480 5G is one of Qualcomm’s most affordable 5G mobile processors, but a totally new SoC for entry-level 5G phones could be on the way.
