Reliance Jio planning to sell 5G smartphones for Rs 2,500-3,000 apiece: Company offi al
New Delhi: 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, according to a company offi al. The company will target 20-30 crore mobile phone users who use 2G connection at present.
"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 offi al said on the condition of anonymity.
At present, 5G smartphones are available in India in the price range starting from Rs 27,000.
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.
At 43rd Annual General meeting, Reliance Industries Chairman and managing director Mukesh Ambani had asserted to make India "2G-mukt" (free of 2G connections) and emphasised on the need to accelerate 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 Rs 33,737 crore investment by Google for a 7.7 per cent stake in Jio Platforms, and said Jio will partner with the US tech giant to build an Android-based smartphone operating sy em.
The company is also working on its own 5G network equipment and has asked the Department of Telecom to allocate it spectrum for testing before exporting these products. The go nment is yet to heed to the request of Reliance Jio.

you can always increase prices to 7000. do quality products and services
okay, leta get in moving ASAP
Firstly jio wants to improve the speed of 4g 1MBPS IN 4g doesn't makes it sense making fools to customer in 5G
Jio's speed will improve until it gets more 4G spectrum. It has reached its limit for now, any more subscribers will make speeds even worse.
Unwantedly Go nment and others are pushing people to less quality products and services.. People are thinking 1mbps is great speed.
It could be possible to release a 5G mobile at low cost when it will be procured in bulk.
It would be good to let the consumer know the features of the type of handset it intends to offer at that targetted price.
Captains of India Inc, take ne : don't compromise on quality of products and services u provide, even if the Gt is weak ! Make Quality our Hallmark in everything we do. (Of course, not the in field of cheating ! )
Pathetically slow jio 4g speeds even in metro cities. Even slower than fossil bsnl. And now they're about 5g!! Hilarious.
Pls don't ruin your money in jios products
Ambani sir, first fix 4G network problem in Bangalore then go and explore other Gs...
It can't fix problem in Bangalore. Jio needs more spectrum, it has the least of the big 3 telcos.
How Modi is allowing Ambanis phones to dominate indian market??
atleast one indian company doing good things. we I am proud of modi or ambani doing good for india
we all are cheated by Ambanis because we dont have rule if net is not working that speed than they should have to pay for us because our work hampered due to his service ,they are charging full and they not going to pay to public due to his fault.
They are short spectrum, they reach mamum limit so speed will not get better until they have more spectrum. They have the least spectrum of the big 3 telcos.
initially Ambani do the thing but later he do things at extreme level, rip consumers slowly.
Gujrat Businessman. Strategy is Entry free to the show, but et chargeable.
very good strategy & good for India .
They will say price of phone is 2500 but the bundle cost he will rip the customers by charging a monthly fixed amount and recover the money Ambani’s can never sell any product with a clear price tag all his offers will ensure the customer is ripped off slowly
Definitely made in phones. Atmanirbhar bharat is a po itical gimmick. I am certain even the ban on Huawei would be lifted soon.
U donno capacity of Indian mobile manufacturing. Some parts can be from . But reached to that global supplier level. It takes time to decouple ..
