"Reliance as an organisation...we have done in the past for 4G where benefits of connectivity were made far more affordable through JioPhones. On the other 4G devices, we are working with Realme and other organisations to try and make devices more affordable for people," Dutt said at the India Mobile Congress 2020.

He said Jio is not only looking at the mobile phone segment but also working on other connected devices.

Realme CEO Madhav Sheth said in future 5G will open up a lot of opportunities for innovation which will not be limited to smartphones alone.

He said chipsets have played an important role in bringing 5G phones to the maximum number of people.

"I think we are on a track to 5G not only in India but globally and I think MediaTek has quite an essential role to play. We've been hardware providers, I think our job is to make sure that basically we are able to bring 5G devices to the maximum number of people at a price which suits their pocket without compromising on technology aspects of the devices," Sheth said.

Chipsets manufacturer MediaTek India's Managing Director Anku Jain said the company has seen strong adoption of digital technology during the pandemic.

"Going ahead, we are looking at trends like artificial intelligence, robotics, drones and vehicle automation, and these technologies are seen working in tandem with 5G for a smarter lifestyle. In 2021, we expect 5G to open doors for faster, and smarter, connected smart devices," Jain said.
