Chinese handset maker TCL Communication Technology Holdings aims to sell 4 million of its Alcatel One Touch smartphones in India next year, a top company executive has told ET.
Michael Chen, senior director of product & marketing (APAC) at Alcatel One Touch, said the company expects majority of sales in India from 4G telecom service providers and e-commerce channels. It is already in talks with 4G operators in the country, he said.
“We have been present through a number of telcos in the country. With 4G, we will enhance our overall market and relationship with Indian telcos,” Chen said.
Chen, however, refused to name any 4G LTE telecom company with whom Alcatel One Touch is working. But in an earlier interaction with ET, Praveen Valecha, regional director APAC at Alcatel One Touch, had said that the company was in talks with Mukesh Ambani-owned Reliance Jio Infocomm for providing 4G data cards and smartphones.
