Its ‘Desh Ka Smartphone’ title also hints on Xiaomi keeping the smartphone India-centric. The smartphone may not be a new product altogether, and Xiaomi will possibly make the smartphone appeal to the country by adding in some regional content. Off late, smartphone brands have been heavily focusing on local content to gain a wider reach in India. With Xiaomi’s latest smartphone we can expect the same. Also, the smartphone will most likely be manufactured in India.
Just recently, Xiaomi launched two new power banks, and also unveiled its first non-smartphone manufacturing plant in India. The new products include the 10,000mAh and 20,000mAh Mi Power Bank 2i priced at Rs 799 and Rs 1,499 respectively. These new devices have been ‘Made in India‘ at Xiaomi’s new facility.
Xiaomi was also recently reported to be the leading smartphone vendor in top 50 Indian cities by IDC. With its successful sales, Xiaomi has also risen to occupy 26.5 percent of the domestic smartphone market in India beating Samsung which garnered 24.1 percent.
