JioPhone Next is going to be made in collaboration with Google and is scheduled to go on sale on September 10.
The next phone coming in from Reliance Jio is the JioPhone Next that is being made in a collaboration with Google. This entry-level Android smartphone was announced in June this year and is scheduled to go on sale in September. With little less than a month to go, the specs of the JioPhone Next have been tipped. Going by the information we have, the JioPhone Next is being tipped to run Android 11 (the Go Edition) and should come with a single rear camera, and an HD+ display. The JioPhone Next was announced at the 44th Reliance Reliance Industries Annual General Meeting (AGM) by Reliance Chairman and Managing Director Mukesh Ambani who had said that the JioPhone Next would be the most affordable smartphone globally.
The specs of the JioPhone Next were tipped by XDA Developers' editor-in-chief Mishaal Rahman on Twitter along with a screenshot of the phone's boot screen that states - “JioPhone Next Created with Google”. The JioPhone Next is said to have the model number LS-5701-J and is being tipped to run on Android 11 (Go Edition). The smartphone may feature a 720x1,440 pixels display and be powered by the Qualcomm QM215 SoC. This Qualcomm processor is a 64-bit, quad-core processor that comes with the Qualcomm Adreno 308 GPU. It is designed for low-end devices and comes with the built-in Qualcomm Snapdragon X5 LTE modem with support for Bluetooth v4.2, GPS, up to 1080p video recording, LPDDR3 RAM, and eMMC 4.5 storage.

Rahman also mentioned that the JioPhone Next is going to come with a single 13MP camera on the back and an 8MP camera on the front for video calls and selfies. The smartphone is also being tipped to come pre-installed with DuoGo that “may have some low RAM optimisations”. There is also going to be a newer version of the Google Camera Go pre-installed on the phone with Snapchat integration.
Given that the JioPhone Next is expected to be the most affordable smartphone, it is imperative that we talk about the price. According to Rahman, the companies are aiming to price the JioPhone Next under $50 so it is possible that it might be priced below ₹4,000 in India. The JioPhone Next is scheduled to go on sale on September 10 and Jio is officially yet to furnish any more details.
