Facts about Smartphone Made in India

The basic concept of made in India initiative is to set up a manufacturing plant in India and then producing these smartphones in India.

But does that mean that the smartphones are actually being built in India only?

The simple answer is no, not yet

Many non-Chinese smartphone brands like Samsung (from South Korea), Apple (from the United States ) and other major brands have manufacturing plants in India.

But all these smartphones are assembled in India. And not really made in India.

A number of components like the Display, chipsets are imported in India from countries like Taiwan, Korea, Japan and others.

This is due to the fact that these components are quite expensive to manufacture in India, or there are not an abundant amount of minerals and resources, or the technology which is required is still not in India.

Hence you get smartphones which have component from all over the world, but the final assembling of the smartphone is done in India.

So you might ask yourself - Is Made in India a scam?

Definitely Not!

On the other hand, it has able to provide over 1.6 lakhs of job indirectly or directly in India and there is an initiative by a number of companies to increase and manufacture components in the near future.

This has given a boost in our economy, and will do as more and more companies come down and start manufacturing their products in India.

You can expect a full-fledged smartphone made in India with each and every component in the near future.

Now that you have the facts cleared over the Made in India initiative, let’s dive into the made in India mobile phones list

Samsung Galaxy M40 made an introduction to the market with a new design and one of the few phones with a punch-hole design.

The Galaxy M40 comes with a 6.3-inch FHD+ Display which is quite bright and sharp to work within outdoor and indoor conditions.

The punch hole is quite small and covers the upper part of your notification bar which shouldn't bother you in doing everyday tasks.

Running a Qualcomm Snapdragon 675 processor with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage, you can expect really good performance and enough storage for your data and applications.

Though it runs a mid-range Chipset, Samsung comes with its own UI called the One UI which is well optimized and filled with useful features like Dark mode for a better user experience.

Gaming is average on the phone with beach duty games running on low to medium settings.

The Samsung Galaxy M40 uses a Triple camera setup with 32MP as the main camera sensor.

The pictures are decent and can give you good quality in a well-lit environment.

The 16MP front-facing camera takes soft pictures but should be pleasing for most users.

As the Galaxy M40 also comes with Type C port, Samsung will equip you with a Type C earphones which is a sweet touch to the overall package.

Lastly, the Galaxy M40 comes with a battery capacity of 3500 mAh which is not the largest out there.

You can expect to last for almost a day on average use. It does support for fast charge if you drain the battery in less than a day.

Who Should Buy?

With a massive 6000 mAh of battery, the M30s are also one of the only phones to have such a big amount of battery.

So if you are someone who is a heavy smartphone user or a gamer, the Galaxy M30s can give you the best battery backup.

Of course, a bigger battery means heavier smartphones. And the smartphone weighs about 188gm which is heavier than your usual smartphone.

But Samsung seems to have done a good job of providing weight balance to the phone, so you won't feel the phone to be on the heavier side.

I did a few gaming testing over the phone and the fact that you are getting a Samsung Exynos 9 Octa 9611 processor rather than an expensive Qualcomm Snapdragon might not be a bad deal.

I was able to get good frame rates for heavy games like PUBG set on medium settings and playing casual games like Subway Surfers and Shadow Fight 3 was super smooth.

If you haven't played these games yet, I recommend you to try these.
