Mr Kim Ki-Wan, Managing Director, LG Electronics India, said,
“India is a strategic market for LG globally and the decision to manufacture smartphones in India underscores our commitment to our customers here. We want to tap the huge potential for smartphones in the country and the K-series will be the first ones to be manufactured in India.
