The JioPhone Next, a cell phone being together evolved by Google and Indian tech giant Jio Platforms, has missed its planned September tenth launch date, the organizations have reported. The deferral is expected to give the two organizations more opportunity to refine the gadget, and to navigate issues made by the global semiconductor deficiency. The JioPhone Next is currently planned for wide release around Diwali, which will happen toward the beginning of November. The phone is at present in testing with few clients.
The phone is intended to be a moderate 4G cell phone to help the approximately 300 million Indian clients at present on 2G networks upgrade to 4G. At the point when it reported the phone in June, Jio’s parent organization Reliance said it would incorporate voice assistant, augmented reality, and translation features. This is incorporate into an “optimized operating system based on Android,” which seems to bear some connection to Android Go, if XDA Developers is to be believed.
Work on the phone was first declared in 2020, when Google reported a $4.5 million investment in Jio. As part of the cooperation, Reliance reported recently that it’s moving its retail business onto Google’s cloud infrastructure.
