- Lava International is already manufacturing smartphones for Nokia in India
- The company has reportedly joined hands with HMD Global for the supply chain as well
Lava International has now joined hands with HMD Global to manufacture Nokia smartphones in India. The company has already started manufacturing phones in the country for Nokia. Reports claim that Lava has joined hands with HMD Global on the supply chain front as well. HMD Global is currently only selling made-in-India Nokia phones and this partnership should further extend the initiative and take it in the right direction. Lava claims that it has a production capacity of 30 million to 45 million feature phones. It is said to be in talks with more brands (including Motorola) for a similar arrangement. Lava, which once was one of the top smartphone brands in India had lost its way with the entry of brands like Xiaomi, OPPO, Vivo, and others.
