South Korean tech giant Samsung has decided to manufacture its latest flagship devices, the Note20 and the Note 20 Ultra 5G, in  Bangladesh. The handset, which was rolled out globally on 5 August, can work with the fifth-generation cellular network technology that gives users near-real-time interactivity, faster internet, lower response times and the capacity to join many devices. “We are manufacturing 5G devices and it shows that Bangladesh can now make anything,” Mohammad Mesbah Uddin, chief marketing officer of Fair Electronics, Samsung’s local assembly partner, told The Daily Star. The first batch of the 5G devices put together in the state-of-the-art manufacturing plant of Fair Electronics spanning 30 acres in Narsingdi will hit the market in the middle of September. The company will make about 26 to 27 percent value-addition to the 5G-enabled device, the pre-booking for which has started on 10 August and will continue until September. “Samsung has full confidence in Fair Electronics and this dispelled the general notions that the country can’t make world-class products. “Thanks to the local assembling, the price of the device would be Tk 35,000 less at least. If the device is imported, the price would be more than Tk 160,000, he added. Although the device, which will come in a mystic bronze and mystic black colourway, is priced at Tk 134,999, a customer can purchase it at Tk 110,000.
