OnePlus India chief Vikas Agarwal said, “We are excited to add another significant chapter in our India journey as we look forward to starting local production of our smartphones within a year of our launch in the country. Local production of OnePlus’ upcoming devices will start before end of this year at the 30,000 sq. ft. facility at Foxconn’s Rising Stars factory within the Sri City Integrated Business City in Andhra Pradesh. The facility will have a cumulative peak capacity of producing up to 500,000 units per month, thus scalable to locally fulfil the demand for OnePlus’ smartphones in India in the future. The facility will also generate direct employment of over 1000 full-time workers, thereby giving further support to the Government’s Make in India.
