The new smartphones are being assembled under the joint venture of Samsung and Lucky Groups who joined hands for this initiative in 2021. Lucky Motor Corporation (LMC) joined hands with Samsung Gulf Electronics for the making of Samsung gadgets in Pakistan. The work was started after the agreement, and the result is out now. With about 70% of the smartphones now being assembled locally, Pakistan’s technological sector will reach new heights where people will look up to the state.
After taxes, imported phones will become even more costly. However, it will increase the demand for locally manufactured phones, thus boosting the industry in Pakistan. According to experts, Pakistan’s import bill will also reduce as the demand for high-end phones will decline.

Evidently, it is important to note that Samsung, one of the largest manufacturers of mobile phones, has started production in Pakistan. This is a great achievement in the technological and IT sector of the country. Pakistan is now witnessing a growth in the mobile manufacturing sector. While setting up plants in 2021, the government ensured that this step with take Pakistan to new levels of development and will also create job market for the youth and hopefully will bring more opportunities in the field.
With the current pace of development mobile manufacturing sector can be evidently noticed by the people of the country and like us, they too have a lot of hope for the progress in the field.
