The RIL (Reliance Industries) AGM 2021 is set to go underway tomorrow, on Thursday, June 24. The annual general meeting of India’s largest private sector company is no longer just a corporate affair – as has been the norm since 2016, the 44th Reliance Industries AGM will also focus majorly on consumer technologies. Reliance Jio, which launched as a telecom subsidiary under the Reliance Industries umbrella, has led a digital transformation for the company, and at Reliance AGM 2021, a number of key announcements are expected to be around Jio 5G, more details around a Jio smartphone being co-developed with Google, and even an affordable Jio laptop called JioBook. Here’s what’s in store tomorrow, and when and how to watch the live stream of Reliance Industries AGM 2021.

Everything Expected at the Reliance Industries AGM 2021

As stated above, a number of key consumer technologies are expected to be showcased at RIL AGM 2021. They are as follows:

Reliance Jio 5G

5G connectivity will undoubtedly form the cornerstone of everything that RIL chairman Makes Ambani may talk about tomorrow. Jio 5G was announced in earlier editions of the RIL AGM and was billed as a fully indigenously developed technology stack by Jio to bring 5G services to the country. Since then, Reliance Jio has stated that it is ready with its technology to deploy the services in India, and 2021 may finally be the year when we get answers in terms of when might consumer 5G services be expected in the country.

Affordable Jio Smartphone in Partnership with Google

A lot of speculations have surrounded the Jio-Google smartphone project, ever since Google chief Sundar Pichai announced at the Google for India 2020 conference that one of the most powerful technology companies will be custom-building a smartphone for the Indian market. While some reports have stated that the project has faced challenges due to differences in operational mentalities as well as the supply crisis of chips, there is widespread market expectations on when might we see the Jio-Google smartphone in action.

JioBook Affordable Laptop

The JioBook affordable laptop is also expected to be a part of the Reliance AGM 2021 showcase. As always, affordability might be the key factor here, and given that Reliance Jio has Qualcomm and Google as investors and strategic partners, it will be interesting if the JioBook laptop may turn out to be a Qualcomm powered entry level Chromebook. It may also be an entry level Windows laptop, and more details should come our way tomorrow.

Expansion of JioMart Services

Finally, like every time, Jio is expected to also talk about its services. This time, one of the key services that may be expanded is JioMart, the company’s big hyperlocal e-commerce and grocery delivery service. JioMart had eyed easier onboarding and partnership with Facebook to use WhatsApp as the delivery medium for the service. This year, we may see JioMart on WhatsApp rolled out officially and across more markets all over India.
