Xiaomi’s first ‘Make In India’ smartphone arrives today
In fulfillment of its promise to start making devices on Indian soil, Chinese phone maker Xiaomi will be rolling out its first made-in-India smartphone in a media event at Vizag city in the state of Andhra Pradesh.
VP Hugo Barra can’t wait for the event to kick off today.
Heading the event will be India’s chief minister of the state, N. Chandrababu Naidu, whose service under Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s administration saw the introduction of ‘Make In India’, a government program that encourages and guides foreign manufacturers to source labor and production in India.
Xiaomi hasn’t said the device it will be launching at the event but we suspect the Xiaomi Redmi 2 Prime, inadvertently uploaded and subsequently taken down from Amazon last week, will be unveiled at the event.
Just like a regular Redmi 2, the Redmi 2 Prime comes with LTE, a 5-inch HD display, Snapdragon 410 SoC, 2200mAh battery cell, 8-megapixel/2-megapixel camera duo and Android 4.4.4 KitKat OS. However, the latter’s memory has been upgraded by double as it was listed with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of built-in storage.
