Google and Reliance Jio may be secretly working on an affordable smartphone that will work exclusively on the latter’s 4G network. The phone is expected to be launched before the end of this year, according to industry sources aware of the development.
“Such a smartphone will help Rjio increase data adoption — helping it render movies and music better over its network. It will also improve the overall quality of service delivered on the Jio network.
“For Google, this would mean access to a large number of new users who would be connecting to the internet for the first time. It may also help the company assess its low-cost handset strategy,” said Sanchit Vir Gogia, Chief Analyst and CEO at Greyhound Research.
