"With these two new smartphone manufacturing partners, we are now all over the northern and southern parts of India," Jayne told business insider. "With the DBG plant coming into operation, we expect capacity to increase by about 20% this quarter. The factory went into operation two months ago. BYD's plant will be put into operation in the first half of this year, and we expect to further increase its production capacity. "
The new plant will help Xiaomi, India's largest smartphone seller, meet "huge demand" and protect the company from supply chain disruption in the event of a future influenza pandemic or other similar events, the Indian general manager said. Jayne said that at present, most of the smart phone parts are also produced or purchased in India, including printed circuit board assembly, battery, sub board, charger and other parts. "About 75% of mobile phone parts are made locally in India." He added that the company is also working with partners to produce camera panels locally in India.
It home has learned that the new partner radiant will produce smart TV for Xiaomi. "Now 100% of our TV sets are made in India," says Jayne. "In Xiaomi and its partner companies, the number of people specializing in Xiaomi products has increased from 50000 last year to 60000 now.".
