JioPhone Next price: Reliance Jio is likely to just blow away the competition with its JioPhone Next price, exactly what it has been doing for years now. Since its launch in India in September 2016, Reliance Jio has been one of the most influential disruptors taking the telecom industry by storm with its cheap data plans and a large number of promotional giveaways aimed at bringing customers into the company’s fold. Since then, Jio has kept its prices low, forcing the competition to do so as well, offering data for a fraction of the cost they would have charged in the absence of Jio. However, Jio’s customer-friendly pricing is not limited to its data plans, but also to hardware sold by the company. Earlier this year, the company announced its first foray into making affordable smartphones available to everyone with the JioPhone Next.

Expected to be available from September 10, the JioPhone Next 4G smartphone is likely to bring basic smartphone features at an affordable price. JioPhone Next price could well be just 3,499, according to a 91Mobiles report. While the company has not yet announced pricing for the smartphone, offering a 4G smartphone for less than 5,000 could have a very strong impact on the entry-level smartphone market.

Jio and Google’s partnership for the upcoming JioPhone Next smartphone can be seen in the software on the JioPhone, with useful features that can help first-time smartphone users get through their day. In fact, it is these users that both Google and Jio want to access, as they will be switching to an Android smartphone from a feature phone for the first time. Jio will also be the first company to bring an entry-level smartphone to India bearing the Qualcomm Snapdragon 215 chipset, which was launched all the way back in July 2019. It will offer dual 4G standby features, something that the operator’s users will need to make calls.

That the expected JioPhone Next price was recently leaked also suggests that competition like Realme, Redmi and Samsung, which offer similar devices, but priced above 5,000 for similar specs, will definitely feel the heat. If the reports about the upcoming JioPhone Next price are true, it looks like the bar for buying an entry-level smartphone might drop to a level that almost anyone will find quite affordable and that will disrupt the market in favour of Jio. Now, all we have to do is wait for JioPhone Next to arrive.
