New Delhi: Seven months since it launched assembly unit in Vishakhapatnam, Chinese smartphone maker Xiaomi on Thursday said about 75 per cent of its phones sold in the country are now 'Made in India'.

In August last year, Xiaomi had partnered Taiwanese firm Foxconn to set up local assembly of its phones to cater to one of the world's fastest growing smartphone markets globally.

"Within months, we have seen the unit being ramped up and now 75 per cent of phones are Made in India. It is a Herculean feat that we have been able to do," Xiaomi Global Vice President Hugo Barra told PTI.

He, however, declined to disclose details on sales and production numbers. India is one of the largest markets for Xiaomi globally. The company assembles devices like Redmi 2 and Redmi Note in India.

Xiaomi also launched its latest device—Redmi Note 3 here, priced at Rs 9,999 onwards. The device had made a global debut in November last year.
