HCMC – While many Vietnamese phone producers are in difficulty, Viettel has started to produce cell-phones to supply its own customers rather than to compete with other established manufacturers.

Viettel last month introduced some cell-phone products designed and produced by its plant, including both low-cost ones and smart-phones. Previously, Viettel’s cell-phones were produced by China-based Huawei and sold with Viettel’s mobile packages.

According to Le Dang Dung, deputy general director of Viettel Group, its products not only target the domestic market but also foreign markets that the group has invested in such as Cambodia, Laos, Mozambique, Haiti and Peru.

Dung said that the handheld device production was a potential market for the telecom sector. Besides, the production of smart-phones integrated with mobile packages aims to boost the use of Viettel’s 3G services among consumers, he added.

Components used in phone production are imported from the U.S., South Korea and China, according to Viettel.
