Sony is Considering to Manufacture Smartphones In India


Japanese Electronics Major Sony Mobile is seriously considering to manufacture its smartphones in India. Director Kenichiro Hibi, Director of Sony Mobile India said the company is considering this very seriously to start a smartphone manufacturing facility in India.

"Of course, thanks to Mr. Narendra Modi's strong initiatives, somehow we have to cope with countries direction and strategy. We are in talks as to how we can support the country's direction. At this point, we do not have any specific comment. We are seriously studying as to how can we reply to PM's requirements."

This consideration is started because India's Prime Minister Modi's 'Make in India' initiative, that encourages businesses to manufacture goods in India rather than importing them. Since then several huge companies have shown some interest in opening facilities on their companies including Foxconn. Samsung Mobile is already manufacturing the Samsung Z1 in India, and it seems Sony will be joining them soon.
