PM Modi to inaugurate one of the world’s largest Samsung mobile manufacturing facility in Noida today

Samsung has chosen India to set up the worlds largest mobile factory. The factory is located in Sector 81 of Noida, Uttar Pradesh, right next to an existing Samsung plant. The factory is set up on 35-acres of land with the ability to churn out 120 million mobile devices in a year. Prime Minister Narendra Modi and South Korean President Moon Jae-in will arrive together to inaugurate the factory. The existing Samsung plant, in the same location, was set up in the early 1990s. It started manufacturing TVs in 1997. The current mobile phone manufacturing unit was added to the plant in 2005.

One year ago, in June 2017, Samsung announced an investment of Rs 4,915 crore to expand the Noida plant. It looks like the investment has led to doubling the production capacity of the plant. Samsung currently manufactures about 67 million smartphones in India. With the new expansion, this will go up to 120 million mobile phones. It is not just mobile phones that will see an increase in production but other products from Samsung’s portfolio including refrigerators and flat panel televisions.

Speaking of Samsung’s investment in India, the company has two manufacturing plants – one in Noida and another in Sriperumbudur, Tamil Nadu. Samsung also has five R&D centres in India, and one design centre in Noida. With the new facility, Noida will suddenely jump to the top of the list for hosting one of the largest mobile manufacturing facilities in the world. 

Samsung is all set to launch the Galaxy Note 9 on August 9 at an event in New York. The company is also expected to launch an Android Go device soon.

In our review of the Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus, Samsung’s first flagship smartphone of 2018, we noted - “The Samsung Galaxy S9+ is the best Android smartphone available right. It's looks stunning especially because of the astoundingly bright display and a design that blends the display to the rest of the body. But more than that, this time, Samsung has taken a new approach to improving the low-light performance of the camera. The rear camera can switch between two apertures. The camera, if one knows how to take good photos, can produce some high-quality shots under poor lighting, especially in a restaurant on indoors, but there are limitations. Samsung's aggressive noise reduction algorithms keeps the image from being perfect, but it's a commendable effort nonetheless. You can't go wrong with the S9+. It has everything you want from a top-of-the-line flagship phone — Latest high-level hardware, excellent design, high security, and an excellent camera. Having said that, it isn't much different from its predecessor, the Galaxy S8+, which is now cheaper and hence, a more value-for-money proposition. The Galaxy S9+ is evidence that this is an iterative year for Samsung and if you have been holding out on buying a good Android flagship, this is the one to get right now.”
