Electronics major Samsung on Tuesday opened the world's largest mobile experience centre in Bengaluru.
Bengaluru's iconic Opera House on Brigade Road was given a facelift, and now it is called 'Samsung Opera House'.
It took two years for Samsung to renovate and restore this place, which will bring together technology, lifestyle and innovation to offer people unique experiences.
Mohandeep Singh, Senior Vice President, Mobile Business, Samsung India, said the company will showcase all its products- right from smartphones, Smart TVs to Family Hub Refrigerators, among others.
Singh added that they are also looking to come up with such experience centres in other cities as well.
"Samsung Opera House will have a fully functional customer service centre, and it is also equipped with high-speed public Wi-Fi," Singh said.
In India, Samsung has two manufacturing facilities, five R&D centres and one design centre. Samsung’s first R&D centre was set up in 1996 in Bengaluru. Today Samsung R&D Institute, Bengaluru (SRI-B) is the Company’s biggest R&D centre in the world, outside Korea. It has the largest retail and distribution network in the country with over 1,80,000 retail partners and 2,100 Samsung brand stores spread across the country.
In July this year, Samsung opened the largest phone factory in Noida. It had said that it would spend Rs 4,920 crore over three years to expand capacity at its Noida plant.
