Reliance Industries (RIL) at its 43rd AGM 2020 has announced its partnership with Google to build a new smartphone operating system for its affordable 5G smartphones in India.
RIL CMD Mukesh Ambani announced that the company is partnering with Google to build a value-engineered Android-based smartphone operating systems.
Ambani said, "Jio has offered affordable 4G devices to more than 100 million feature phone users who upgraded to Jio Phone. However, more than 350 million feature phone uses remain in the country and to bring them on board, Reliance will bring an entry-level 4G or even 5G smartphone for a fraction of its current cost. To power such a value-engineered smartphone, we also need an equally value-engineered smartphone operating system which will be designed from ground-up."
He added, “The Jio-Google partnership is determined to make India 2G-mukt."
