2. Jio Phone Next

Last year during #boycottchina period, everyone was looking for an alternative to Chinese phones. This year, Mr. Ambani is bringing his JioPhone next in September’21 which is jointly developed with Google. Let’s see whether this #localbusiness can disrupt the sale of Chinese phones in India. And how big pie in the cake of the Indian mobile phones industry will he take.

During the #Reliance AGM on 24th June, announced #JioPhone next (that is jointly developed by Google) and will be launched by Sept’21. “I am pleased to announce that Google and Jio teams have jointly developed a truly breakthrough smartphone JioPhone Next. It is a fully-featured smartphone supporting the entire suite of applications from both Google and Jio,” Ambani said at the 44th Reliance AGM 2021 event.

Jio will likely launch the JioPhone Next with free data packages to undercut the competition. But the question remains the same. Will Mr. Ambani be able to repeat his disruptive telecom strategy in the mobile industry again which is currently dominated by Chinese Phone makers? We’ll have to wait to get the answer.

After the Reliance 44th AGM Announcements, According to analysts, we could be looking for a hint about demerger of the main company into Jio, retail and petrochemical businesses.
