LG launches Android phone Optimus One
LG today launched the Optimus One, priced at Rs 13,500. The Android operating system-based handset has 8.1-cm display, 3MP camera and expandable memory upto 32GB.
The company is also ramping the capacity of its manufacturing unit in Pune, but it will not manufacture the smartphones in India yet.
"We are importing the smartphones from Korea. We will have to wait and see the sales before we take the decision of manufacturing smartphones here. We will invest about USD 4-5 million for the expansion," he said.
LG's Pune facility has a capacity to manufacture eight million handsets a year, which will be increased to 15 million by next year.
Handset maker LG said it will invest more than Rs 100 crore for marketing and promotion of its smartphone range 'Optimus' in the country next year.
The investment is a part of a Rs 350-crore marketing budget for 2011.
