To be fully manufactured in India, Redmi Note 5 & Note 5 Pro will be launched on 22 Feb. On Wednesday, Xiaomi India said that in line with its commitment to make in India, Xiaomi would manufacture its two new offerings — Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 & Note 5 Pro — at its 2 manufacturing units in Sri City, Andhra Pradesh.
Xiaomi India Managing Director & Global Vice President Manoj Kumar Jain said that like our other products, these devices will be 100 % manufactured in India. Majority of these two devices according to Manoj Kumar, will be manufactured at two of their units housed in Sri City. They will have more to share on the overall manufacturing front for India soon.
The company manufactures more than 95 % of its smartphones –sold in India– at its plants in Sri City.
The company is geared up to take “Make in India” to the next level by setting up more manufacturing units for other categories of products too, said Jain on the sidelines of the launch event.
Xiaomi India in partnership with the domestic manufacturing firm Hipad Technology, has recently announced its 3rd manufacturing plant in the country based out of Noida, which is its 1st facility for power banks.
Jain notes that among the top 10 smartphones in India last year, 6 were Xiaomi phones. Xiaomi has 57 per cent market share online and about 11 per cent share offline in India. The challenge for the company is now to defend the online territory & ramp up its offline presence for a strong year-long growth period.
