According to the site Hindustan Times, “Reliance Jio will use Spreadtrum chipsets simply to enable 4G VoLTE calls on the Rs. 1,500 feature phones. The report says, citing unnamed people familiar with the matter, that Reliance Jio is “expectedly in talks” with Qualcomm and MediaTek, which account for a huge chunk of the processors used in smartphones nowadays.”
