Foxconn, the company that’s famous for putting together Apple’s iPhone, has started manufacturing smartphones in India at it’s Andhra Pradesh facility.
The announcement was made by a company spokesperson and is part of its plan to expand into the country to take advantage of the exploding smartphone market.
Reports have suggested that Foxconn’s facility at Sri City will manufacture 10,000 units of Xiaomi smartphones per day, while Apple’s iPhones will be manufactured at a later date.
Foxconn was forced to shut down three of its facilities in Tamil Nadu after Nokia shut down its India manufacturing outfit after being sold off to Microsoft.
Now the company plans to setup between 10-12 facilities in India by 2020 as it looks to ride the wave of growing smartphone use in the country.
