MediaTek and Reliance Retail scrapped this plan and are currently focusing on a 4G feature phone instead. This partnership would be a change for the telco as the current JioPhones use Qualcomm and Unisoc chipsets. The upcoming JioPhone 3 would be an upgrade over the existing JioPhone 2 which retails for 2,999.
