Geo, at its AGM 2021, has announced its first smartphone: Geophone Next. As one would expect, considering the history of telecoms, Geo’s first smartphone is expected to make a lot of changes for the Indian market. This is, primarily, related to the price, which is really very little expected.
According to a recent leak, Geophone Next will fall below Rs 5,000, which is in line with previous leaks. Here is what we know about the device.
JioPhone Next Price Leaked
A report by 91 Mobile The offer suggests that the Geo smartphone is priced at Rs 3,499, which makes it tough to compete with many entry-level smartphones available in the Indian market. This will persuade many feature phone users to switch to smartphones, considering the lower price tag.
In addition to this, we also have the details of the expected specsheet. As a result of the partnership with Qualcomm, Geophone is expected to be powered by the next Qualcomm Snapdragon 215 chip. If this happens, it will be the first phone in India to get the chip.
The phone is expected to come with an HD + display, which will be housed in a thick bezel. It can be equipped with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of storage, which can be expanded via a memory card.
The camera department hopes to keep cameras both front and back. Although the camera configuration remains unknown, it will support features like HDR and night mode. Geophone Next will come with Snapchat which is pre-installed to offer people with Indian filters.
It will come with a specially made Android version, which will probably be Android 11 Go. There will be features for Indian audiences including read, read aloud and translate now to help people see content in their language.
The smartphone will also provide regular updates, built-in Google Play protection features and access to Google Assistant and Geo apps.
Geophone Next will be available on September 10th. Therefore, we have to wait until then to get a better idea about it.
