INTRO: The HMD Global, which is the home of Nokia mobiles, has recently announced the new Nokia 5310 Xpress Music in India. The 5310 Xpress Music is for all those people who are nostalgic about Nokia’s popular Xpress Music phones of old times. While that’s all well and good, the company is also further planning on making India a manufacturing hub for all its phones, as said by Sanmeet Singh Khocchar, VP, HMD who was speaking at the sidelines of the launch.
Vice President, HMD was speaking to The Mobile Indian. In their conversation, he mentioned that almost 99% of Nokia smartphones that are sold in India are manufactured or made in India only. That’s already a very nice thing, but he also went on further to explain the future company Nokia’s plans for the country. According to Khocchar, HMD is hoping to make India a manufacturing hub for all of its smartphones. So, the company is hoping to manufacture its phones here and export them to other markets across the globe.
Khocchar gave a statement to The Mobile Indian as saying “India is on the correct path to make it big in the manufacturing space and it can definitely become one of the most sought after manufacturing destinations in all over the world. Even we are planning to scale up our manufacturing in India so that we can export our future smartphones from India to other markets”. While currently, it’s unclear when HMD is going to scale up manufacturing in India, it’s definitely good news for the economy of India.
