Jio Phone will be Made in China, not Made in India by Intex



Reliance Jio announced the new Jio 4G feature phone last month which is expected to take the whole telecom sector by storm. This feature phone will be available to purchase this month and interested customers can get their hands on one of these as early as August 15. However, before making a purchase decision, there are a few things which you need to consider and the most important being the manufacturing of these 4G feature phones.

At the AGM, it was reported that the Jio 4G Feature phones will be made in India. This, in fact, was the next interesting thing about the phone, other than the pricing. However, one thing which most people didn’t notice is the fact that these devices will be made in India starting Q4. This means that the units which will be available to purchase initially will be made in China, which is definitely not a bad thing, to begin with.

However, with recent news reports stating how few people are against purchasing Chinese products in India or boycotting Chinese products, are indeed something which can affect the sales of Jio phone. Do make a note that this might not be a deal breaker for most people, however, the fact that Jio phone will be made in China initially will alarm a significant amount of people and can potentially affect their purchase decision.

Do make a note that we are not against the products made in China. In fact, it is worth noting that still a majority of products like electronic gadgets, smartphones, etc. are made in China. Even if a label of a particular product reads “Made in India”, chances are that the parts were imported from China and they have been assembled in India. Definitely, this initiative is highly supported by a lot of brands and manufacturers and in fact, it should be supported by all since it has a lot of advantages and mainly it creates a lot of job opportunities as well.

Intex Launches Its First 4G VoLTE Feature Phone To Compete With Jio Phone & Others

Also, there have been reports in the past saying that the Jio feature phones which the company is planning to sell, will be manufactured by Intex Technologies. Yes, it was reported a couple of months back, that the Reliance Jio 4G Feature phones will be made by Intex Technologies and will be marketed and sold by Jio under their brand name. However, we don’t have any confirmation on this particular news whatsoever, and if anything all, it is suggested that you wait for any official info on this from the company.

And if you are in the market to buy a feature phone, it is suggested that you wait until all the options are out. There are a few reports which claim that Airtel is also planning on launching a feature phone to compete with Jio phone. In fact, even Idea cellular is making an unlocked 4G phone which will work any carrier unlike Jio phone, which can only be used with Jio. Having said that, we would really like to know your thoughts on this. Now that you know the Jio phone will be made in China, would you be interested in buying the new Jio phone? Be sure to head over to the video which is embedded above and let us know by voting in the poll.
