Samsung's latest smartphone factory in India is the world's biggest
Samsung is already one of the biggest players in the Indian smartphone market, but with overall growth in the country expected to remain strong over the coming years, the South Korean giant is expecting demand for its smartphones to continue increasing too. Because of this, and in order to reach its own goals, the company has just opened the world’s biggest smartphone factory in India.

The plant expansion, which spans 35 acres, or 141,000 square meters, and is based in the city of Noida, has the potential to double Samsung’s smartphone output in the country once at full capacity. For reference, the brand presently manufacturers around 60 million units in the market, which means its total numbers could eventually reach 120 million annually. However, this number will not be attainable any time soon, with Samsung estimating around three years before the figure can be reached. This is partly due to the rather long process that lies ahead which will see it hire a total of 5,000 new employees.

In regards to what exact devices will be manufactured at the plant, Samsung is yet to confirm any details, although it’s claimed that everything from low-end offerings to premium flagships could potentially be produced. But, with the expanded production now allowing the company to avoid even more import tariffs, it seems likely that the majority of the new capacity will be destined to the low-end smartphones that have proven popular in India, something that will allow it to maintain its higher profit margins for the time being.

Damn Samsung, you're not slowing down, you're speeding up. I can't think of any other company investing in as many new plants as Samsung. They were already massive, and they're becoming even larger at a pretty significant rate. Their profits also increased +50% YoY for 2 of the 3 last quarters, and their stock doubled in 2 years. Well done Samsung, and keep on going, because we don't want an Apple monopoly as consumers, as they're already pushing up the prices to ridiculous highs. We need competition, which is something Apple fanboys don't understand.

Samsung just doing the same thing like one plus and Nokia by manufacturing there low and mid range phones in India due to the low labor cost that’s all about it.

Every company uses low labor costs, so that's nothing new. Name a single mainstream smartphone company that doesn't. The only one i know that doesn't is Fairphone, but they're barely a company.

LG flagship still made in Korea only low end made in China others China including iPhone, Samsung (China,vetniam) would prefer Galaxy’s and note line that made in China over the Vietnams due to the defects unit and some issues with call quality.

Number of times Apple mentioned in article-0 Number of time you mention Apple in your comment-2 Clearly Apple has a monopoly in your mind. Start charging them rent, you can use the income to either finally buy an iPhone or get some therapy to get control over your Apple obsession.

Nah, not at all. I'm just happy whenever someone expands that isn't them, as a monopoly is a horrible horrible future for any consumers, which is something that the blind fruit followers don't understand. If a company has a monopoly, then they can do whatever the hell they please with a complete disregard for consumers, such as hiking up your prices, simply because you can. We're way too close to a monopoly as it is, and i want to avoid seeing that at any cost.

That's such an ignorant and stupid thing to say. Samsung is the leaders within several categories, as they produce nearly anything, they even produce military equipment. So to say that all of the products are garbage, when they're some of the best within several categories, is just blind hate.

Leaders lmao stfu their phones don't have auto brightness sensor

Yeah they do? The brightness automatically adjusts itself depending on the luminosity of the environment. I've said this, and i will say it again. You're an Apple fanboy who hasn't owned a Samsung smartphone in his life. You literally clueless about them, yet keep hating on them without knowing what you're talking about.

You definitely don't own common sense or a general knowledge of what you're talking about.
