ZTE India named Xu Dejun as CEO to replace Cui Liangjun, who will move to the company's headquarters in Shenzhen, China.

It also said 2012 sales for its India operations rose over the last two years to $700 million. The year-ago sales figure was not immediately available.

ZTE, which is also the world's fourth-biggest handset maker, and rival Huawei Technologies Co Ltd HWT.UL 002502.SZ have diversified from selling just telecom network gear, where growth has slowed, into consumer electronics gadgets such as smartphones and tablet PCs.

The Indian telecom network gear market has struggled in the past one year after a Supreme Court order to revoke permits of several smaller cellular carriers.
