The ET report quoted sources as saying that Reliance Industries Limited (RIL) may announce its alleged ‘affordable’ laptop JioBook and 5G smartphone at AGM. The company is developing this smartphone in association with Google and according to the report, it will be brought to the R&D (research and development) stage between May and June. Apart from these two devices, we may hear many more announcements in AGM 2021, one of which could be about the 5G network roll-out. Reports and rumors say that the company may rollout its 5G service in the second half of this year. Somewhere the company can start the network service with its own developed 5G smartphone.
The cheapest 5G smartphone in India at the moment is Realme Narzo 30 Pro, which costs Rs 16,999. Reliance is known for revolution, so it would not be surprising if the company launches its smartphone at a very aggressive price. Last year, at the AGM, the company announced its partnership with Google, stating that the search giant had relied on Reliance’s Jio Platforms Ltd. Has bought 7.73% of Equity Stakes
