Samsung is all set to announce a partnership with Reliance Jio. An anonymous tip off has revealed to Technology Personalized that Samsung’s customers will be entitled for a Jio Preview Offer where in they will get 3 months of unlimited data, voice and messages on a Jio Sim (available for free). This is a BIG news considering Reliance Jio hasn’t yet launched for the general public other than being available as part of a bundled offer with Reliance’s own Lyf smartphones.

As a part of the offer the users of certain Samsung smartphones (detailed below) will get unlimited HD Voice & Video calling, unlimited SMS, unlimited High-Speed Data and a host of Jio Premium apps like JioPlay, JioOnDemand, JioBeats, JioMags, JioXpressNews, JioDrive JioSecurity and JioMoney free for three months.
