Reliance Industries’ (RIL) telecom arm — Reliance Jio Infocomm (Jio) — is reportedly planning to launch affordable large screen smartphones. In this regard, the company is working in association with its partners. The company is aiming to cater customers who seek to upgrade from feature phones to own such a 4G device.
Jio has partnered with several smartphone manufacturers such as Oppo, Samsung, Apple and Xiaomi to give offers to bring down the effective cost of a smartphone to make it affordable for first time buyers.
