On 15th July 2020, Reliance held its AGM (Annual General Meeting). In this meeting every year, they reveal some new milestones achieved by the company. Also, they announce their plans for the future. This time we got many good things to hear from the company such as 5G in India with 100% homegrown technology and Jio Glass and much more. They have also announced that Jio and Google have partnered and will work on some entry-level smartphones. This leaves us a hint of an upcoming Jio android phone that can probably be Jio phone 3. In this article, we will discuss Jio new android phone leaks and try to figure out the Jio phone 3 price in India. So without any further ado, lets head into the article.
Jio Phone 3: Jio Android Phone
As mentioned above in the AGM 2020, Reliance announced that Google had invested 4.5-Billion Dollars on the Jio platform. And it is just the part of 10-Billion amount committed by Google to invest in Jio. On stage, Mr. Mukesh Ambani announced that Google and Jio would work together for a new OS based on Android. Meanwhile, they will ditch Kai OS. Also, they will together bring up entry-level smartphones in India, seeking forward in the mission of “Smartphones For Every Indian“.
From the speech, we can also trigger that the next smartphone from Jio may not have the name as in sequel to the Jio phone series. As they have not mentioned the name of the smartphone. Also, having a different OS can be a reason for not continuing the Jio phone legacy.
Jio Phone 3 Leaks
In the speech, Mukesh Ambani mentioned that their partnership is aimed at building a value-engineered Android smartphone OS. It is expected that Jio will soon launch 4G and 5G enabled affordable devices. This will be a significant move towards the digitization of India. Moreover, recently an India tipster Mukul Sharma aka Stufflistings tweeted that a mysterious smartphone from Reliance Jio was spotted on the FCC certification site. The listing also mentioned the model number RC545L for that smartphone. It was running on Android 10, revealing it to be similar to an extent for Jio phone 3.
Jio Phone 3 Price
The original Jio Phone comes at Rs. 1,500, which was a massive success for the company. However, the next-gen Jio Phone 2 did not work well enough as it did not bring anything new apart from a new keypad layout. So this time Jio phone 3 has built up some high expectations for us consumers. This will be a significant threat to all top smartphone brands in India if Jio can launch an entirely Made in India smartphone under Rs 10,000. Keeping this vision in mind, and earlier performance by the company, we can expect the pricing of third-gen Jio Phone to start at Rs. 5,000.
