But have you ever wondered where Samsung makes all these devices? One might think that in China, as practically all other firms do, but no. Contrary to what it may seem, Samsung has many factories in different countries of the world and against all odds, China is no longer among them.

These are the countries where Samsung manufactures its devices

As we announced at the time just over a month ago, the Korean brand was closing its last Chinese factory. So where are your factories? Well, as the SamMobile medium tells us, Samsung has factories in all these countries.

  • Vietnam: it is the country where the largest number of Samsung devices (smartphones, tablets and laptops) are manufactured. It is estimated that each year, up to 120 million units are produced.
  • IndiaIndia is not only the country with the largest Samsung factory, but also where the most smartphones are produced. Interestingly, they rank second in this market after Xiaomi.
  • South Korea: Of course the home of the brand could not not be included in the list. In this place devices are manufactured that are generally intended for the local market.
  • Brazil: Samsung operates in this country since 1999, employing more than 6,000 employees. Its objective? Supply smartphones to all of Latin America.
  • Indonesia: This is an increasingly interesting market for the firm. Opened since 2015, it produces around 800,000 units a year. Enough to meet local demand.

Despite all these factories, Samsung has stated that all phones manufactured by the company meet the same quality controls regardless of where it is manufactured. That is to say and in theory, a smartphone produced in South Korea has to be the same as one made in Brazil. Especially since the materials and components are the same.
