Hanoi (VNA) - Property developer Vingroup will officially launch its Vsmart smartphones on December 14 at the Vincom Centre Landmark 81 in Ho Chi Minh City.

The phones are being manufactured at the VinFast automobile and electric motorbike manufacturing complex in Dinh Vu-Cat Hai industrial park in the northern port city of Hai Phong.

The factory has a capacity of five million products per year for the first stage and is certified to achieve ISO 9001: 2015 quality management.

Vsmart technology is developed on the basis of high standards from Europe. In particular, most of the stages in the value chain from design, research and product development have been developed by leading Spanish technology company BQ. With the acquisition of 51 percent of BQ, VinSmart can maximise the capacity of the Spanish senior team in product research and development as well as in the application of technologies in manufacturing.

Besides BQ, Vsmart is also working closely with the world’s largest tech companies such as Qualcomm and Google to update the most advanced technologies in the field of smartphones.

Through the investment in the telephone manufacturing plant, Vsmart is striving to control the entire product value chain.

Vingroup’s vice chairman cum CEO Nguyen Viet Quang said the completion and launch of four smartphones in less than six months demonstrated the group’s commitment and determination to enter the technology industry. At present, Vingroup is still working with big partners, looking for skilled professionals and perfecting an advanced equipment line.

“We expect, together with VinFast automobile, Vsmart will promote the development of Vietnam’s industry and bring the Vietnamese brand to the world," he added.

After the mobile phone, Vsmart will produce intelligent electronic products such as SmartHome and SmartTV. Vsmart will also approach domestic and international suppliers of chips and accessories to master supply chain management and quality.-VNA
