Domestic electronics manufacturing firm Dixon Technologies’ wholly-owned subsidiary, Padget, and a US-based smartphone manufacturer Orbic have entered into an agreement for manufacturing of smartphones at Padget’s manufacturing facility situated at Noida.
The new Orbic Myra 5G UW, powered by the Snapdragon 750G 5G Mobile Platform, will be the first 5G millimeter wave product to be produced in India for export to the US, Dixon informed in an exchange filing on Monday.
The Orbic Myra 5G UW smartphone, which can operate in high-frequency bands, is also the first smartphone that has been partly designed in India, Dixon Technologies executive chairman Sunil Vachani told news agency PTI.
Sunil Vachani- Executive Chairman of Dixon Technologies said, “We are extremely excited to partner with Orbic for manufacturing of smartphones. This is a golden phase for India’s manufacturing industry considering it is being supported with the new Industrial friendly policies and incentives which are being rolled out by the Government of India and we are proud that Dixon is a part of making India ‘Atmanirbhar’ or ‘Self-reliant’”.
The 5G millimeter phone can theoretically provide the speed of up to 5 gigabits per second (Gbps) on a phone which is over 250 times faster compared to the top speed of the 4G mobile connection recorded in India.
