The China-based telecommunications company, Huawei, has plans to begin manufacturing smartphones in India in 2019, according to BW Business World.

The firm is planning to open 1,000 retail stores across India by 2020 in order to push its smartphone, Huawei Mate 20 Pro.

Wally Yang, Senior Product Marketing Director, Huawei Consumer Business Group, said: “Numbers is not a very big milestone to achieve for us, our target is to let more people experience our products. The reason we are trying offline push is so that more consumers can experience the superior quality of our products and numbers will follow automatically.”
