The country will produce an estimated 165 million smartphones by the end of March, and the same number of basic feature phones. The production cost of one-fifth of the smartphones is Rs. Less than 7,000. Reliance's rival Airtel is also in talks with Suthanik Assemblers to develop its own 4G device.If Reliance succeeds in popularizing its new smartphone, the chances of the Geo platform spreading will increase. Mukesh Ambani's empire could spread to e-commerce,social media and games. More than 400 million Geo users use the second-generation device and pay બે 2 a month for voice and data.

These users are the biggest potential for Reliance's new device. If Reliance can attract them, the market share of Chinese phone makers like Xiaomi could be washed away.
