He emphasised that the gadget would provide new opportunities for millions of new customers who will be using the internet for the first time.
"As a result, I see it [the introduction of Jiophone Next] as setting the groundwork. The demand we see is a type of digital transformation that is visceral. And I believe it will have a significant influence over the next three to five years. Overall, India, like the rest of Asia Pacific, is an attractive market for us. We see strength in all of the categories in which we are active. As a result, you'll see us staying focused there," he remarked.
Jio emphasised in a "Making of JioPhone Next" film, JioPhone Next, like its other services, is "Made in India, Made for India, and Made by Indians." The device's goal is to provide equal opportunity and access to digital technologies for all Indians.
