Russian Firm Moves to China

Moving production of the YotaPhone 2 from Singapore to a ZTE plant in China will make Yota’s flagship handset at least 30% cheaper, according to the Russian firm. ZTE will also help to develop a prototype of the next generation device, RT reported. The first and the second generations of YotaPhone were produced at the Hi-P factory in Singapore. “This factory does not meet our quality standards and requirements of the clients to the clarity and speed of deliveries. Also, with Hi-P it was impossible to make manufacturing costs comparable to our competitors, which certainly affected the final price,” Yota Devices CEO Vladislav Martynov told Russian business daily Kommersant. At the current exchange rate, YotaPhone 2 costs $450 in Russia, which leaves practically no profit margin for the firm, said Martynov. The scale of Yota’s future contract with ZTE has not been disclosed, with the first batch expected to be 100,000 units. The Russian company plans to introduce the new version of the phone in the first quarter of 2016.
