Last month, the Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) issued a local firm the license to manufacture Samsung smartphones locally.
“In accordance with Mobile Device Manufacturing (MDM) Regulations 2021, PTA has issued MDM authorization to Lucky Motor Corporation Limited for manufacturing of Samsung brand mobile devices,” read a statement issued by the regulator.
The company applied for authorisation to set up a mobile device manufacturing plant in Karachi.
