Now OnePlus hops on the ‘Make in India’ bandwagon
OnePlus has become the latest smartphone manufacturer to join the ‘Make in India’ bandwagon. The company announced today that it has entered into a partnership with Foxconn, and will soon begin manufacturing handsets in the country.
It was revealed that by the year’s end, the Chinese contractor’s factory in the Indian state of Andhra Pradesh will start assembling OnePlus devices.
While the move would likely result in Indian customers paying less for OnePlus smartphones, the gap between the demand and supply of its handsets won’t get bridged at-least for a while, the company noted, adding that it will stick to its invite system for the near future.
Many other Chinese smartphone manufacturers, including Xiaomi, Gionee, and Oppo have already jumped on to the ‘Make in India’ bandwagon.
