Jio’s upcoming cheap smartphone might turn out to be damp squib; here’s why

Even as the Mukesh Ambani-controlled Reliance Industries is busy signing new deals for its retail and platforms ventures, the conglomerate’s deal with Google to develop low-cost smartphones is being actively followed by the telecom industry watchers. “We believe we can design an entry-level 4G or even 5G smartphone for a fraction of its current cost. Google and Jio are partnering to build an Android-based smartphone operating system,” Ambani said at the RIL’s 43rd annual general meeting in July.

All Eyes on Apple’s Upcoming “Hi, Speed” Event

On Tuesday, Apple (AAPL) sent out invitations for an October 13 event named “Hi, Speed,” keeping the happening’s content under wraps. However, it is not hard to deduce from its name that Apple is alluding to the performance expected from its flagship product – the next gen iPhone 12, Apple’s first handset to boast 5G capabilities –  and will therefore announce the product’s launch at the event.

Reading between the lines, Deutsche Bank analyst Jeriel Ong arrives at the same conclusion. Although the analyst adds it “remains somewhat speculative when exactly iPhones will be available for sale after this event,” going by past announcements Ong assumes “a 10-day rule is appropriate.” This suggests the coveted product could hit the shelves on the weekend of 10/23-10/25 which will provide roughly 10 weeks of iPhone sales for the December quarter.

The tech giant usually reserves its new iPhone launch for
