As per a report published in Digit today, the Mukesh Ambani-led company aims to introduce entry-level 4G smartphones in the country too. Jio is planning to target first-time internet users now and since most of the affordable smartphones in the country don’t offer VoLTE, Jio is planning to do the job on its own. An Economic Times report claim that the company may launch these phones in the first quarter of 2017 itself.

“It will be a challenging time for the smartphone market, which could see flat growth in 2017,” said Faizal Kawoosa, principal analyst at Cybermedia Research.
