Oppo announced that it will manufacture one million 4G smartphones in August in India. The news was revealed by Mike Wang, CEO of Chinese Company’s India subsidiary. Mike Wang also states that the smartphone will be designed in China but will be manufactured in Noida at the company's production facility which is neighbor city of India's national capital New Delhi.
The CEO didn’t reveal anything about the Smartphone so it is unknown on which model Oppo is working. But he told about price of the device will be $150-300, it means upcoming device will be a budget phone. When mobile tech asked from Wang about current manufacturer of Oppo in India, he emphasized that “the arrangement will remain unaffected even after the Noida factory is upbeat and running and Foxconn would continue to manufacture smartphones for OPPO in India.”
As we already know after China, India is the second largest mobile market in the world. So it is obvious that every smartphone maker try to tap India’s market. Recently, few Chinese smartphone makers such as Lenovo, Xiaomi, Gionee, and OnePlus have signed partnership with Foxconn and started their operations in India. Furthermore, Vivo also announced to manufacture handsets in India. The aim of all mobile markers is to grab more market share and create employment opportunities for Indians.
