You may have probably used a phone that passed through Foxconn’s factories or you have never heard before of the company.
Hon Hai, better known as Foxconn is a major Taiwanese company that is well known for manufacturing electronic products for a lot of major companies like the iPhone, the iPad, Nintendo 3DS, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Xiaomi devices, Nokia devices, Kindles and much more. So in the sense you might have used a product or products that have passed through Foxconn’s factories.
However, most people do not know that they have a silent smartphone brand called InFocus. Sources now inform us that Foxconn is exploring expanding to Kenya with the InFocus brand and it is not a surprise at all.
Kenya is a hotbed for budget smartphones and we have a number of players already scrambling for this huge market. InFocus phones are generally budget phones so they have the ability to work well in this hotly contested market in Kenya.
InFocus is already in India which is arguably the biggest market for budget smartphones and they sell a number of budget smartphones like the A2, A3, Snap 4, Turbo 5s, Turbo 5, Turbo 5 plus, Vision 3 and also feature phones like the Vibe 1.
Since Foxconn is known for manufacturing smartphones for other clients, this is easy for them as they can use their massive economies of scale to build them for cheap to sell them to these types of markets. We just have to wait and see what they will bring over to the Kenyan market.
