Hon Hai (Foxconn) intends to build a LCD-TV plant in Chongqing, China. The so-called “Smart TV” plant will have an annual output of 3 million TVs and will be ready in 2013.<br /><br /><h3>Foxconn to build LCD-TV plant</h3>Foxconn recently invested in <a href=http://www.flatpanelshd.com/news.php?subaction=showfull&id=1334043037><b>Sharp’s 10G LCD plant</b></a> that is also the most advanced LCD plant in the world and the one used to produce <a href=sharp.php><b>Sharp’s 80 and 90 inch TVs</b></a>. Foxconn reports that they also intend to build a new LCD-TV factory in Chongqing, China.<br /><br /><p align=center><a id="thumb" href="pictures/chongqing-1l.jpg" class="highslide" rel="highslide"><img class="imgresponsive" src="pictures/chongqing-1.jpg" alt="Foxconn TV" title="Click to enlarge" /></a><br><i>Foxconn to build new TV factory in Chongqing, China</i></p><br />Not many details are shared at this point but the LCD-TV plant is said to be ready for mass production in late 2013. It will be able to produce 3 million TV sets annually, which is quite low for a modern TV factory. Foxconn will invest approximately 1 billion USD.<br /><br />We should underline that Foxconn intends to produce final TV sets at the new plant and not actual LCD-TV panels that will have to be sourced elsewhere. The plant is said to involve touch-screen LCD-TVs for Smart TVs. Half of the production is locked for these touch-screen LCD-TVs that will ship to European markets.<br /><br />Foxconn already produces laptops in Chongqing.<br /><br />- <i>Source: <a href=http://usa.chinadaily.com.cn/china/2012-10/26/content_15850621.htm target=_blank>ChinaDaily</a>, Hon Hai press</i>
