Xiaomi and Oppo Factories Fail to Meet Normal Production Levels Due to COVID-19 Spread

    According to insider sources, Xiaomi and OPPO have allegedly been forced to resort to importing some smartphones to India because their assembly plants in India have failed to return to normal production levels.

    Most of the smartphones sold by Xiaomi in India are produced by Hon Hai’s factories in Tamil Nadu and Andhra Pradesh in southern India. OPPO on the other hand have a factory in the suburbs of New Delhi, where all their smartphones are assembled.

    The source pointed out that although all factories were approved to resume work in May, many smartphone factories are still struggling to cope with the labor shortage, which is further exacerbated by how smartphone demand has accumulated over the past few months.

    We aren’t sure how many devices have needed to be imported, though we’re expecting the numbers to be fairly large. OPPO’s factory reopened on May 7, but after several workers tested positive for COVID-19, the factory closed again for more than a week.
