The much-awaited Reliance annual general meeting (AGM) date is today. Reliance AGM 2021 is predicted to feature a 5G rollout announcement, affordable laptops, and a 5G phone. While events from telcos aren’t usually of interest to IGN India, Reliance tends to specialize in gaming-related details during its AGM, as we’ve seen within the past. Although nothing has been teased from its gaming and esports divisions just yet, it’s going to just be worth tuning in. Particularly after recent comments from company officials, Reliance Jio’s cloud gaming plans are further ahead than you’d think.
Here’s what you would like to understand about Reliance AGM 2021.
How to Watch Reliance AGM 2021
Reliance AGM 2021 takes place on Midsummer Day, 2021, at 2 pm IST, and it’ll be live-streamed via JioMeet for Reliance shareholders. The Livestream also will be available on YouTube.
What You Can Expect from Reliance AGM 2021
Jio 5G Network Rollout Announcement
Reliance Jio is predicted to announce its 5G rollout plans at AGM 2021. Reliance Industries director and Chairman Mukesh Ambani had previously revealed that Jio 5G rollout would begin within the last half of 2021, suggesting that the official announcement will be done at the annual general meeting. Reliance has teamed up with Qualcomm to check its 5G network before the final public rollout. Jio may announce details about the 5G launch date and plans.
Jio 5G Phone
Reliance may launch its affordable 5G smartphone during the annual general meeting. As reported by Livemint, the corporate is launching the new smartphone in partnership with Google, and Google has already invested Rs. 33,737 crore for a 7.7% stake in Jio. Google and Jio also are performing on a replacement Android-based OS called JioOS, which is meant for entry-level smartphones.
Since there wasn’t a replacement version of JioPhone in 2020, Reliance is predicted to announce an upgrade at today’s AGM. Consistent with Times of India, Reliance had revealed in its 2020-2021 annual financial report that JioPhone has “upgraded over 100 million users” since its launch in 2017.
At Reliance AGM 2021, the corporate is predicted to share some details about its affordable laptop, rumored to be called JioBook. The laptop may accompany Android-based JioOS and support 4G LTE connectivity.
Along with these, the corporate may announce new JioFiber and Jio mobile plans at Reliance AGM 2021 also as plans regarding its push into gaming.
