Oppo is looking to increase its manufacturing capabilities in India. The Chinese vendor is setting up a plant in Noida, with plans to produce one million 4G-enabled smartphones monthly.
In an interview with Economic Times, Oppo India CEO Mike Wang stated that the vendor will be producing devices aimed at the ₹10,000 to ₹20,000 segment, although specific models were not revealed.
The phones will be designed in China, and manufactured in India following "local level customization for the India market." Initially, all phones manufactured in India will be sold locally, but a portion of the production will be dedicated for export to South Asian markets in the future.
Foxconn currently manufactures all Oppo handsets that are sold in India, but Wang mentioned that its partnership with the vendor will not be affected by upcoming plant in Noida. With Oppo re-doubling its efforts in the country with the launch of devices like the F1, it is likely the Chinese manufacturer is looking to its factory to augment production.
