Will Jio disrupt the consumer tech market ?

10th May 2021

In August 2020, Mukesh Ambani announced that Jio would roll out 100 Mn low-cost 4G or possibly 5G-enabled smartphones with one of its strategic investors, Google, at a fraction of its current cost. The launch of this entry-level Android phone is expected in the first half of 2021.

5G Smartphone

Jio Platforms may launch its first low-cost 5G smartphone in partnership with Google at its annual general meeting this year. The smartphone will reportedly run on Android Go or Android-based JioOS, which the company has been developing in-house, and come with basic specifications.


The company will also be launching its low-cost laptop range JioBook this year, which was earlier said to be powered by JioOS. An affordable Jio laptop with 4G could also be a product targeted towards the edtech market, with students taking online learning classes since the pandemic last year. 

Mixed reality device for 3D and virtual interactions

Reliance Jio is also working on a next-gen JioGlass mixed reality device for 3D and virtual interactions, with potential applications in the industrial and manufacturing sector. The Jio Glass is expected to be a lightweight device connected to a smartphone. The company has said that it will come with 25 in-built apps to allow augmented reality video meetings and more.
