  • Reliance Jio is working on its first 5G phone
  • The handset is tentatively called the Jio Phone 5G
  • It may arrive as India’s most affordable 5G smartphone

Jio Phone 5G’s expected price appeared in a report by data analytics company Counterpoint. The report, which has been taken down, had revealed that it may arrive as one of the most affordable 5G phones in the country.

Reliance recently held its AGM (Annual General Meeting) to confirm some of its upcoming plans. The company announced the Jio Air Fiber 5G hotspot and its plans to roll out 5G networks in India. It also confirmed that it aims to launch ultra-affordable 5G phones in the country in collaboration with Google. However, the telecom operator did not release any information on the specifications of its first 5G phone.
