Reliance Jio is looking to launch a large screen smartphone in India after the success of Jio Phone and Jio Phone 2, however, there has been no certainty on the time frame of the launch from Reliance Jio. Reliance Jio took the Indian telecommunications industry by storm and then launched the Jio Phone and Jio Phone 2 in India as the first 4G-enabled feature phones which also come with features such as support for WhatsApp, Google Assistant and more. The company might also launch a large screen smartphone as well.
There has been reports that Reliance Jio is already in talks with Flex, which is a US-based contract manufacturer, for locally manufacturing around 100 million affordable smartphones and bank on the users looking to upgrade from a feature phone.
However, there has been no confirmation on when Reliance Jio will be launching its new large-screen upgrade or whether it will be a Jio Phone with a bigger display. On the other hand, Reliance Jio is not new to the smartphone industry as it launched the Lyf smartphone brand a couple of years back as well. While Reliance Jio will be launching the Lyf lineup since it wasn’t a big success or will it introduce a whole new smartphone lineup, only the coming future will tell us.
