OnePlus has announced that it will manufacture phones locally in India, and today we're hearing more about the company's plans. In an interview with Reuters, OnePlus India general manager Vikas Agarwal revealed that local manufacturing for the OnePlus 3T will kick off early next quarter.
India is a huge market for OnePlus, with one-third of its global sales coming from the country. The OnePlus 3T went on sale on Amazon India — where it is available exclusively — last week, and OnePlus announced that it already picked up 200,000 registrations for the phone.
OnePlus currently imports phones into the country, but by manufacturing its products locally, it will be able to alleviate supply constraints:
We actually probably have lost, I would say, maybe 30 percent of sales because of stock-outs. The focus is on trying our best to meet the demand.
The company hasn't reveals its manufacturing partners yet, but it is likely the brand will tie up with Foxconn. And while there are no plans to offer its products on other platforms, OnePlus will establish an experience centre early next year in Bangalore, where prospective buyers will be able to go hands-on with its latest phones.
