Samsung now owns the world’s largest mobile phone factory

Why it matters: Setting up shop in one of the world's last remaining untapped markets will allow Samsung to make phones at a lower cost, boosting profit at a time when other markets have cooled.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi and South Korean President, Moon Jae-in, jointly inaugurated Samsung's 35-acre plant in Noida today.

Samsung's Noida plant was set up in 1996 and is the first of two manufacturing units in India.

The final T20I of the series in Bristol was a high-scoring affair, one that the fans were waiting for right through the series. Sharma - man of the match and series - said conditions and size of the pitch were ideal for his assault on the England attack.

Samsung's new facility will not only help in mobile manufacturing but also double its production capacity of consumer electronics like refrigerators and flat-panel televisions - which will further consolidate the company's leadership in these segments, according to the reports. The factory is located in Noida's sector-81.

PM Modi said India has around 120 mobile phone manufacturing units scattered around the country, and out of which 50 of them are present in Noida.

Samsung has been enjoying a feast in the smartphone market, especially in India, where it has the tag of highest selling mobile brand, after Xiaomi.

Prime Minister Modi speaking at the inaugural ceremony said that the new unit of Samsung will be a matter of pride for not just India but Uttar Pradesh and Noida.

Samsung has two manufacturing plants - in Noida and in Sriperumbudur, Tamil Nadu - five R&D centres, and one design centre in Noida, employing over 70,000 people and expanding its network to over 1.5 lakh retail outlets.

For delivering the customer's demand, Samsung now rolls out around 5 million units of smartphones which is going to be catapulted to 12 million a month.

Although Samsung has taken a calculated step to expand its manufacturing facility in India, it may not bring smartphone prices down. More than 10 percent of its total production now takes place in India - but that figure could rise to 50 percent within the next three years if everything goes to plan. "The completion of the factory was made possible by the cooperation of the Indian government and the government of Uttar Pradesh", he said. A financing arrangement of $10 billion had been set by South Korea for infrastructure development in India, following the visit.
