Reliance Jio smartphones could be cheaper than the cheapest null

Reliance had disrupted India’s mobile telephony market in 2002 by offering calls that were cheaper than the cheapest. At the company’s last shareholder meeting, it was announced that it would offer 100 million low-cost smartphones. Now it looks like these phones could once again disrupt the smartphone business. 

Reports are emerging that these smartphones, built on Google’s Android platform, could be available for as low as Rs. 5,000 (approximately $68) when it is likely to hit the market in 2021. But, that’s not all, the reports indicate that the prices may drop further to as low as Rs.2,500 (just $34 at current exchange rates).
