HTC, reportedly, has signed an agreement with contract manufacturer ‘Global Device Network’ to produce entry-level and mid-range smartphones in India.
HTC will become the second major global smartphone manufacturer, after Samsung, to produce handsets in the country.
The trials have already begun and commercial production is expected to start from mid-July to supply HTC devices to India, Africa and the Middle East.
The devices made in India will be the Desire series, priced between Rs 10,000 and Rs 25,000. The Taiwanese manufacturer has no plans to assemble its flagship One series models in India.
