How many manufacturing plants does Samsung have in India? . The new facility is spread across an area of over 140,000 square meters. The plant started with the manufacture of televisions way back in 1997, and mobile phone manufacturing unit was added in 2005.

Samsung's reputation was dealt a blow by the bribery conviction of Lee Jae-yong, who was a key figure in the scandal that ousted former South Korean leader Park Geun-hye following massive nationwide protests, and was sentenced to five years in jail last year. By 2012, Samsung became the market leader in mobile phones in the country and the Noida facility rolled out the first-ever "Galaxy S3" device. India is a big opportunity across price segments, including 2G feature phones.
Samsung is one of the top feature phone manufacturers in India with 20.5 per cent of market share at the end of 2017, according to IDC. Under intense competition from Apple Inc. and Chinese rivals like Oppo, Vivo, Xiaomi, Gionee and Lenovo, Samsung plans to make India its export hub for countries in Europe, Middle East and Africa.

After smartphones, they can go into building top-of-the-line products in other categories like TVs, refrigerators as advance manufacturing in India still lags behind.
