A new hardware

We were looking at similar markets in India. Can somebody tell us how much
practically possible is it to manufacture (build) freerunner (replica or
with modifications/improvements) with the current open documentation
available (specifically hardware) from the downloads?

We have good software and marketing team but are yet to build a hardware
team - before which we were looking at the possibilities of building the
phone in India (outsourced/in house).

We would appreciate any kind of help/advice/direction/suggestion/... in this

Thank you!
