Huawei gets clearance to manufacture smartphones in India, makes history

Huawei is, like Foxconn, Lenovo, and other worldwide manufacturers, is targeting the Indian market. The company received the green light security clearance earlier today from the Indian Ministry of Affairs to manufacture and sell products in the country, which is an emerging market for smartphone sales. India has 975 million mobile subscriptions currently, and Huawei wants to take advantage of this to further its brand recognition. This comes after security concerns plagued the Chinese manufacturer for some months. Huawei’s security clearance, once made official, would mark the end of a 19-month waiting period regarding security clearance for its production work in India.

This feat is important for not only Huawei, but China, seeing that Huawei would become the first Chinese manufacturer in the region. Huawei has already started investing in India with its export manufacturing services in Tamil Nadu and its research and development centers in the country. India is not only important because of its enormous population, but also because of the Indian consumer investment. A large portion of Indian residents expects affordable prices and loves high-end smartphones with rock-bottom prices. Huawei’s strategy in the region will be to sell its high-end devices for more competitive prices and continue to gain success over giants like Samsung Electronics and local favorite manufacturer Micromax.

Huawei is currently in line to manufacture one of two 2015 Nexus devices. So far, the fingerprint scanner, octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 820, and 5.7-inch, Super AMOLED display with a Quad HD screen resolution of 2,560 x 1,440 pixels have already been confirmed.

          It is really a blunder or mistake to not capitalize the names of countries in a sentence. I guess you can only make fun of others mistakes you can’t accept when people do back it to you. The author obviously made a typo, just like you did. No one is perfect. Why are you feeling so butt hurt that I called you out for doing the same thing you accused him of?
