      JioPhone Next will have Huge Impact on India’s Digital Transformation : Sundar Pichai

      JioPhone Next, Jio’s entry-level 4G smartphone is to launch in India by Diwali, Google CEO Sundar Pichai said during a recent earnings call. The JioPhone Next is co-develop by Mukesh Ambani-led Reliance Jio and Google.

      The launch of JioPhone Next was postpone due to the global semiconductor shortage.

      Jio and Google have previously announce that the duo has made ‘considerable’ progress and is “actively working to make it available more widely in time for the Diwali festive season.”

      JioPhone Next is said to be “Made in India, Made for India and Made by Indians” and is seemingly built keeping in mind the needs of millions of new users looking to experience the internet for the very first time.

      Jio work closely with Google, particularly on the software side to enhance localisation so more users will be able to access the smartphone in their preferred language.

      Sundar Pichai Said :

      “The JioPhone Next device features premium localised capabilities and is on track to launch in market by Diwali,”

      “we see the demand for people looking to shift from feature phones to smartphones. And so, part of what excites me about the upcoming partnership with Jio in building a phone is really investing beyond just English, and getting languages, and getting the local needs right for people and doing it in a way that many more people can take advantages of a smartphone.”

      JioPhone Next runs ‘Pragati OS’ which is based on Android.

      Customisation that Jio R&D and Google have done remains unknown for now-it isn’t clear if it’s Android Go with custom skin layout on top-though it’s said to bundle features like voice assistant, automatic read-aloud of screen text, language translation, smart camera with augment reality filters, and many more.
