Are you struggling to find Indian mobile brands?

Other options of Mobile Brands

Besides the exclusive Indian mobile phone brands, what other options can one consider? Isn’t this the question that bothers all of us? 

As the make in India campaign began on 25 September 2014, the scheme of manufacturing ordinary things within the country was highlighted. This campaign was promoted so much by the Prime Minister himself that it became an important announcement. The technology was one of the first areas to be covered under the shed of the Make in India campaign.

Some smartphones exclusively are made by Indian companies within India. However, most smartphones are imported. The outsourcing of many major company outlets is promoted in India under the shed of Make. The Indian smartphone market is fast-growing and changing. This attracts many foreign smartphone markets to make their phones in India and sell them locally. 

Talking about the particular smartphones Oneplus 8 Pro, Infinix Hot 9 Pro, Apple iPhone SE 2020 are few that are outsourced in India and are hence ‘made in India’. 

  • Apple:
