Reliance Jio Might Launch New Jio Phone In Next Quarter

Notably, the upcoming feature phones are expected to be under Rs. 1,000, which means Reliance Jio is again looking to disrupt the feature phone market and it will be available in 80,000 stores. It is also expected that Reliance Jio might launch new prepaid plans for the upcoming feature phone.

"The JioPhone was last sold at Rs. 699, but it will be difficult to match that pricing now due to an increase in component costs post Covid-19 and import duties," industry sources were quoted by ET. "However, it will still be below Rs. 1,000 since Reliance Jio wants to reach out to consumers who are not connected, in smaller towns and villages where affordability is an issue," sources added.
