In a AGM (Annual General Meeting) Mukesh Ambani said that I am pleased to announce that Google and JIO teams have jointly developed a truly breakthrough smartphone, that we are calling JIOPHONE Next.It is a fully featured smartphone, supporting the entire suite of applications from both Google and Jio, as well as the Android Play Store through which users will have access to the entire universe of Android Apps.
It is powered by an extremely optimised version of the Android Operating System, that has been jointly developed by JIO and Google, especially for the Indian market. While being ultra-affordable, JIOPHONE Next is packed with cutting-edge features like the voice assistant, automatic read-aloud of screen text, language translation, smart camera with augmented reality filters and much more.
JIOPHONE Next will be available in the market from the auspicious date of Ganesh Chaturthi (September 10) this year.
Mukesh Ambani Says ready to add 200 million customer to Jio
During the past year, we also made the necessary capital investments to further strengthen our market position and growth. During recent spectrum auctions, we invested Rs 57,123 crore to acquire significant additional spectrum, making JIO the largest operator of 4G spectrum in India. And we have operationalized nearly 100% of this additional spectrum. When combined with another Rs 15,183 crore we invested in further expanding our network infrastructure, JIO has raised the bar even higher for service quality and JIO’s leadership is evident across India along all key metrics like indoor coverage, download speeds and video experience.
More importantly these investments have also created the capacity to on-board an additional 200 million customers on JIO’s network thereby bringing digital empowerment to even more Indians.
