Reliance Jio’s ambitious plan to launch budget 4G Android phones seems to have gotten delayed a bit. These phones are now expected to launch in the first quarter of next year as opposed to the December launch schedule that was initially planned.

The decision to launch affordable 4G phones was aimed at upgrading the 2G feature phone users to a 4G phone under what Jio calls as “2G mukt Bharat” campaign. However, it has been reported that the devices are still in their testing phase and will take yet three more months to arrive.
