Google helps Indian operator Reliance Jio to develop a cheap smartphone with support for LTE
According to the source, the Indian cellular operator Reliance Jio may secretly be working together with Google on a cheap smartphone with support for 4G, which will only work in networks of the operator.
Using Google to develop such a device needs to make a final product of sufficiently high quality and to help Reliance Jio to take an even greater share of the market. We can assume that the smartphone will be part of the Android One that, among other things, will provide support for OS updates in the long term. About the cost of the developed mobile data yet.
Note that Reliance Jio is more than 7% of the smartphone market of India the company’s share continues to grow.
