Foxconn Group is preparing to build a manufacturing base in Bangalore, India.
Foxconn previously prepared to invest USD5 billion to build 12 manufacturing bases across India and create working opportunities for local tech workers. The company already has set up manufacturing bases in Mumbai's development zone. It makes mobile phones for many Chinese brands in those manufacturing bases.
Foxconn is reportedly Apple's largest phone foundry in the world. However, Apple did not choose Foxconn to make its phones in India; instead, they selected Wistron Group as its partner in this country.
Apple previously said that they are making the iPhone SE in India and the product is expected to be launched at the beginning of June 2017.
It is possible that Foxconn will continue to work with Apple in the future and compete for Apple's orders to make phones in India to promote its Indian manufacturing plan.
