Symphony has sent the ‘Made in Bangladesh’ smartphones to the Apex Group of Nepal, a South Asian country. Symphony is the second local brand of Bangladesh that exports smartphones manufactured in Bangladesh. In this consignment, Symphony is sending 10,000 Symphony-branded smartphones.
In October 2021, the company exported 15,000 smartphones to Nepal. It plans to send 10 thousand mobiles of various models every month. It started to manufacture smart and feature phones in 2018 at its Asulia factory. Currently, it produces around 12 million phones and several million mobile accessories products every year.
Symphony announced its plan to expand exports of its own branded and locally manufactured handsets to Vietnam, Sri Lanka, Nigeria, and Oman by this year. Posts and telecommunications minister Mustafa Jabbar, its secretary Md Khalilur Rahman, BTRC chairman Shyam Sunder Sikder, Symphony managing director Jakaria Shahid, and some notable personnel spoke at an event organized at Symphony’s handset manufacturing factory in Ashulia, Dhaka on 22 January 2022.
In March 2020, local technology giant Walton became the first company to start exporting smartphones made in Bangladesh. Walton exported its device to USA from its Gazipur plant.
