The Indian conglomerate Reliance has finally held a full presentation of JioPhone Next, which is positioned as the cheapest smartphone in the world.
The announcement of JioPhone Next, created in conjunction with Google, took place back in June 2021, but then neither exact pricing nor exact specifications were announced. And so far we have had to be content with only numerous rumors and hints.
Now the Jio brand has provided official information on the cost and characteristics of its intriguing new product. JioPhone Next will be available for 6,499 Indian rupees (6,128 rubles) with a one-time payment. An option is also offered with an initial payment of 1999 rupees (1884 rubles) and the need to pay the remaining amount within 18 or 24 months with the connection of communication services. In fact, we see a contractual distribution model that is common in many regions.
Sales are set to kick off with the Indian festival of Diwali, which falls on November 4th this year, but in the meantime, you can register on the website or at Jio Mart Digital stores.
JioPhone Next runs Pragati OS, a version of the Android operating system designed specifically for the Indian market.
