Due to the recent tensions between India and China on the borders of the countries, many Indian citizens have decided to have a complete ban on Chinese products. They are keen to use things that are made in India and thus help with the economy. People are now moving towards using Indian mobile phones and brands that are based in India.
Unfortunately, Almost all the major components for manufacturing a smartphone are sourced from other countries, and are only assembled in India. That is the biggest challenge in becoming self reliant on smartphone manufacturing and cutting China out of the equation. Dependency for these key components remains, and shall remain on Taiwan, Korea or China for at least the next few years. Currently, only parts like batteries, chargers, packaging materials etc are locally sourced. But if we keep buying from Indian Company, it’ll grow and in future it’ll try to manufacture major parts too in India.
There are many companies in India that provide some stunning features and products. If you want to check mobile phone brands by country then here is the list :
