They dont exist. So called Indian Mobile brands are just resellers, they buy from china, charge a markup and sell in India.

The biggest thing is that Apple hasn’t donated anything in India yet.

Companies might owned by people from different countries, however all parts for each and every smart phone is made in China.
A single semiconductor fabrication plant costs $100 Billion+, china has 110 of them, and India has 0

Nope, Apple designs its phones – software and hardware both, it just doesn’t manufacture it directly. Same goes for Samsung and LG. You will not see the same phone being sold under a chinese brand name. That is not the case with Karbonn or Micromax.
For eg: Many popular Micromax phones were originally being sold in China under some chinese name and they were just imported, rebranded as Micromax and sold in India. There is a large difference.

No to your first point as well, the most advanced chips are made in US, Taiwan, SK & Japan. China although having stolen a lot of IP from them is getting close, to match the best in the business they’ll still need at least 10 years!

Kuch bhi, thoda type karne se pehele soch liya karo aur ye bhai sahab ko like dene waale maharathi kaun hai rolleyes

As for donating PPE, did you know China sneakily imported billions of masks & other PPE from across the globe just before the world had to take notice →

Now China is selling these at as much as 5-20x their bulk prices to the highest bidder!
