Reliance Jio To Launch a 5G Smartphone At Rs 2,500-3,000
Reliance Jio is planning to launch a 5G smartphone for less than Rs 5,000 and gradually reduce the price to Rs 2,500-3,000 a unit when it scales up the operation.
The company will target 200-300 million i.e. 20-30 crore mobile phone users who use the 2G connection at present. “ Reliance Jio wants to bring the device for less than Rs 5,000. When we scale up the sales, it can be priced in the range of Rs 2,500-3,000,” a company official said on the condition of anonymity.
Currently, the minimum price 5G smartphones price range starting from Rs 27,000 and above in India.
Taking the initiative, Jio was the first company that launched 4G mobile phones in India free for consumers where they were required to pay a refundable deposit of Rs 1,500 for a Jio Phone.
Announcement from Reliance Jio
At the 43rd Annual General Meeting, Reliance Industries Chairman and managing director Mukesh Ambani had asserted to make India “2G-mukt” (free of 2G connections) and emphasized on the need to accelerate the migration of 350 million Indians (currently using 2G feature phone) to an affordable smartphone, at a time when India stands at the doorsteps of the 5G era.
Ambani had also announced a Rs 33,737 crore investment by Google for a 7.7 percent stake in Reliance Jio Platforms and said Jio will partner with the US tech giant to build an Android-based smartphone operating system.
The Reliance Jio is also working on its own 5G network equipment and has asked the Department of Telecom to allocate its spectrum for testing before exporting these products. The government is yet to heed to the request of Reliance Jio.
Currently, India does not have 5G services and the government has not even allocated spectrum to telecom operators for running field trials aimed at promoting a domestic ecosystem for next-generation technology.
