JioPhone Next

Reliance Jio is about to disrupt the super affordable phone market with its JioPhone Next.

At the Reliance Industries’ 44th Annual General Meeting on Thursday, Reliance CEO Mukesh Ambani revealed the upcoming JioPhone Next. This new smartphone is developed in a partnership with Google.

This new Android smartphone is developed in a partnership with Google. The JioPhone Next is a dual sim touchscreen Android smartphone. This phone runs an optimised light weight version of Android and comes with both Google’s and Jio’s suit of apps.

The Next includes Wifi, GPS, 3G as well as 4G connectivity options and includes various features such as voice assistant, automatic read-aloud of screen text translation, smart camera with AR filters, and a lot more.

The smartphone is targeted at first time Smartphone users that include around 300 million 2G feature phone users in the country.


Apple makes privacy a must, and Google is following the same with android.


Apple added a new privacy feature that managed to shake the entire tech industry. The App tracking privacy feature allows iOS users to choose whether they want to let an app track them everywhere. This feature also caused a lawsuit between Apple and Facebook.

Many apps don’t just track your inside the app, they also track your movements outside of the app. This is how companies such as Facebook can show you targeted ads based on stuff you were doing outside the Facebook app.

Google is now bringing the same feature to its Android operating system although it is unclear if it would also allow users to opt-out and completely stop Google from tracking them. Google at the core is an advertising company and adding a feature that would reduce their own profit seems unlikely.
