Samsung opens world’s biggest phone factory in India. The factory is situated in the satellite city of Indian capital Delhi, Noida . The new factory is said to be capable of making up to 120 million smartphones a year. Samsung says They’ll use the plant to make entry-level phones as well as flagship devices like the Galaxy S9.
Compared to Other countries India is a huge smartphone market with over 400 million users, but the country has a population of 1.3 billion. Which means t there’s still a lot of untapped potential. 2017 smartphone shipments reached 124 million, according to figures from IDC, so this Samsung plant alone could account for a huge chunk of the market. Samsung has recently been overtaken by Xiaomi as the biggest smartphone vendor in India, however, and it’s clear that expanding production within the country is going to be essential for anyone to compete. Making in India will cause a huge reshuffling of price in Samsung models.
