Still missing a perfect selfie as I don't have the #Mobiistar to Enjoy More

Though I tried my hands on various smartphones/mobiles, for so many clicks, I am still missing a perfect selfie shot that can be called the perfect masterpiece as I don't have the #Mobiistar - a selfie camera for a great selfie experience, that can click a perfect selfie in the 120-degree wide angle with the perfect picturesque background, to enjoy more.

Some of the clicks that I liked most included the ones with my wife on a Jet Airways Flight that always reminds me of the Valentine day.

Other Clicks included a click while trying my hands on the Tata Tigor, on its launch, while my hand with my mobile is visible in the background, in the reflection.

Yet another click while I was Live on a TV Debate on the IBN7 - News India 18 TV channel, along with the Spokespersons of BJP & Congress party.

Yet another click with Tajinder Pal Singh Bagga, the BJP Spokesperson, who has been followed on Twitter by the Prime Minister Narender Modi, while he has followed me on Twitter. The selfie is not good as the light was not OK, my eyes were closed, but I still include it in my loved one clicks.

Yet another click with Baba Ramdev Ji is a Bad Click. He was on the stage and he just bent down for a Selfie click with me on the stage of Aajtak TV channel.

Yet another click with Asadudin Owaisi, he took my mobile in his hand and clicked the pic. Not at all a good one. But I like it.

There are many more clicks, some are good, some are not so good, but not yet a perfect masterstroke as I am still awaiting the perfect #Mobiistar in my hands.

Hopefully, the new Mobiistar being launched on the 23rd May 2018, will be a perfect mobile with the perfect front dual selfie camera, for the perfect masterstroke, and a great selfie experience as it can capture the pics with a  120° wide-angle shot to get the most of the picturesque beautiful background.

NEW DELHI: Vietnamese handset brand Mobiistar is set to enter the Indian smartphone market later this month to take on Chinese brands like OppoVivo, and Xiaomi, and has decided to make India its global headquarters to run operations in other countries.

"4G feature phone happened in India, and 4G is growing fast. This is the market where all the major things in the mobile industry are happening in India...We do have a chance to try. succeeded or not, it's too early to tell. This is the market we want to try," Carl Ngo, Group CEO at Mobiistar, told ET.

"After looking at the number and size of the country and growth, I have decided to be based here. The idea is to run global operations by based out of here. I am here full time," he added.

"Under this partnership, Vsun will provide the bandwidth that we want basis the demand, and will give priority to us. They can allocate production lines to us in a very fast manner. They have the unit in Haryana. The trial production has already begun," the top executive said.

Mobiistar is also mulling over setting up its SMT (Surface-mount technology) for the printed circuit board or PCB assembling in the country.

The handset company is focusing on the selfie camera segment, largely created by Chinese brands like Oppo and Vivo. It will launch products in the Rs 6,000-Rs 10,000 price category initially in the online channel.

"We have to get the right product for the Indian market. We will begin with online but have a plan to go offline and then the price range will be larger," Carl said.

The handset player is looking to launch products, specially made for the Indian market with local research and development. For R&D, it has formed partnerships with chipset vendors and design houses. The brand will have up to 850 service outlets from the day one of launch, which it will increase to 1000 outlets after three months.

"We have to put enough resources into bringing the product to India and then making the brand known to the consumer. We have to service them enough. R&D, supply chain, and more importantly manufacturing...these all are investments," Carl said, without sharing investment figures.

For marketing, the company is planning to ape India's leading handset brand, Xiaomi, which achieved the numero uno position in the country without spending huge marketing dollars like Oppo and Vivo.

"We will largely focus on social media and digital channels, and will directly talk to consumers," Carl said.

The company currently has a team of 50 people, which it wants to increase to 200 by hiring executives for functions such as sales and marketing, and product development.
