Using imported parts, the facility will have an annual production capacity of 6 million smartphones and employ 1,500 people. Production of its MotoE range of smartphones has already begun.

China's Xiaomi this month said it was joining forces with Taiwan-based tech giant Foxconn to start assembling phones in India.

Foxconn, Hon Hai Precision Industry, has also announced it will invest $5 billion in the state of Maharashtra. It has not said what it will be making but a local minister told Reuters that it has been in talks to manufacture Apple iPhones.
