The entire specifications of the JioPhone Next smartphone, aimed for the ultra-budget market, have been released, according to Android Authority, citing “reliable sources.” The device runs on the Android 11 Go operating system and is powered by a low-cost Qualcomm processor.
Indian telecom provider Reliance Jio revealed the JioPhone Next, which was created in conjunction with Google, at the end of June. Outside of India, the model was slated to go on sale on September 10th for less than $100. The model will be dubbed “the world’s cheapest smartphone,” according to reports. Mishaal Rahman, the chief editor of the XDA Developers portal, remarked on the specifications.
He indicated the smartphone will use the Qualcomm 215 ultra-low-cost 64-bit chipset without revealing sources of information. It contains four Cortex-A53 cores with a clock speed of 1.3GHz. Other low-cost devices, such as the Nokia 1.4, are based on it.
The JioPhone Next comes pre-installed with Android 11 Go, which supports up to 2GB of RAM. The operating system is said to be 20% faster at launching programs than its predecessor, as well as having a better notification management system and other new features.
The JioPhone Next display has a resolution of 1440 720 pixels, the main camera is a 13-megapixel sensor, and the front module is a 5-megapixel sensor, according to reports. We already know that the smartphone will come with Google Camera Go and Google Duo Go pre-installed.

The Android Go is an operating system that is designed for phones with 1GB of RAM or less. The Wiko Y80, for example, is one of numerous smartphones with 2GB of RAM that also runs Android Go.
All phones with 2GB of RAM or less should launch as Android Go devices, according to Google. Since the launch of the Android 11 Go Edition, this has been the intention.
All new Android 10 products must be part of the Android Go program if they have less than 2GB of RAM. Devices with 2GB of RAM that were released previously will not be upgraded to Android Go; they will remain on the standard Android version.
We can predict that additional Android Go handsets with larger memory will hit the market based on this information. Some manufacturers, on the other hand, may choose to equip their devices with at least 3 GB of RAM, even if they do not use Android Go and instead use their own proprietary graphical user interface.
The question remains as to how things will be if new cellphones, such as those with 2, 3, and 4 GB of RAM, become available.
