In a step towards 'Atmanirbhar Bharat' -- a campaign by Prime Minister Narendra Modi to make India a self-reliant nation -- telecommunications company Reliance Jio is reportedly working on low-cost laptops. According to reports, the Jio laptop, allegedly called the JioBook is expected to launch soon with the aim of extending its services across the country.
As per the report from BGR India, the company is developing its first-ever laptop, which will run Android instead of Windows OS. There are chances that the Android 10-based laptop will be topped with Jio’s own fork of Android, possibly called the JioOS. XDA Developers got hold of the alleged laptop’s firmware, which also hints at the Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 chip for the JioBook. The Snapdragon 665 SoC comes with a 4G LTE-enabled Snapdragon X12 modem.

There is also a prototype image of the Jio laptop. By the looks of it, the JioBook appears like a basic device. While the image shows Windows keys, the final device could get rid of it, considering it will run on Android.
The report further revealed that the Jio laptop is expected to come with a pretty low price tag, which will make it easier for people to buy it and get easy access to the internet. Much like with its phones, Jio could bundle its plans, be it 4G plans or the JioFiber plans, with the laptop to make it more convenient for people.
