They first announced about smartphone manufacturing in 2015. The plant became operational few months back.

As much as I like Walton, Apple and Samsung are now marketing companies at stratospheric level. Apple and Samsung are world class world-beater companies. Samsung has manufacturing arm unlike Apple.

Walton still has some ways to go to reach the level of those companies in R&D as well as marketing.

It can handily do that however in the country localization context (Bangladeshi UI and features localization like language, apps). Like how NTT and Samsung do it in Japan and Korea respectively.

I know you probably said this half in jest - just setting the record straight....

I wanted to update this old informative thread with some of the new cellphone backward integration capabilities Walton has invested in. These capabilities have involved many crores of investments to become an OEM supplier of motherboards for other local volume featurephone manufacturers and assemblers, which are a staple of less solvent phone users in Bangladesh. It is clear that Walton is moving upmarket and will leave featurephone assembly to more basic smaller outfits.

Waiting for India to get to 2011 by introducing their first made in India smartphone made by an Indian company. At least BD has something to show for. For an Indian who has nothing to show for other than phones only assembled in India, this is quite a sad display of desperate attempt at berating BD.
Please do not insult Indian capabilities. They will soon send men to the Moon!! You must believe it because they used to do so 5,000 years ago.
