"We as a company are 100 per cent committed to 'Make in India'.

"This is the first non-phone category where we are extending 'Make in India' but we will be happy to extend it to other categories also as and when we reach a certain volume threshold," Jain added.

The Chinese smartphone maker also announced two power banks -- a 10,000mAh Mi Power Bank 2i and a 20,000mAh Mi Power Bank 2i -- that will be manufactured at the Noida facility.
