If this phone is going to be a smartphone, it is almost certain this will run on Android, although instead of using the full Android, Jio may use the Lite version of the Google OS.

Jio will come with Android platform, because, Google and Jio partnership that was announced earlier this year.

Google has been invested over $4 Bilion in Jio, and at that time had said that the partnership would focus on creating more affordable Android device for Indian users.

Jio was the first company that launched 4G mobile phones in India free for consumers where they were required to pay a refundable deposit of Rs 1,500 for a Jio Phone.

Reliance is also working on its 5G network equipment and has asked the Department of Telecom to allocate its spectrum for testing before exporting these products. The government is yet to heed to the request of Reliance Jio.

IndiaToday reported, At present, India does not have 5G services and the government has not even allocated spectrum to telecom operators for running field trials aimed at promoting domestic ecosystems for the next-generation technology.
