HUALIUS, India — The first tablet made by a U.S.-India maker will ship in early 2018, a month ahead of the target of October, the first of what will likely be a growing number of Indian-made tablets.
Huion, the Chinese electronics giant, has long been a target of U.K. and U.C.I.A. sanctions.
That could change with a new U.N. sanctions resolution expected to be introduced in March that could require China to stop manufacturing certain Chinese-made goods and to reduce imports of certain goods from India.
The company is now working on a tablet that is a step closer to hitting that target, CEO Suresh Nandy said at a briefing on Tuesday.
The tablet will have a 10-inch screen with a resolution of 1024 x 768 pixels and weigh about 2.5 pounds, the company said in a statement.
It will be made by an Indian firm called Huion, which is in talks with several major Chinese companies and is working with others on developing the tablet, Nandy told reporters.
Huions tablet is the first from a Chinese company that was not sanctioned by the U. N. Security Council last year and which is expected to sell in the U: It is being made in India by Huion and would be manufactured by a Chinese firm, he said.
Huions tablet will not be a substitute for the U-Connix tablet, which has already been approved for use in the United States.
Huans tablet will be available in a range of flavors, including a sweet-and-sour flavor and a mild flavor.
Huione, a U-S.
company that started as a research company in 2007 and is now a global marketer of Chinese products, has struggled with growing competition from Indian manufacturers such as Vivo and Cetiq.
In May, it said it would stop making some Chinese products in the coming months.
