Earlier in August this year, Xiaomi had announced that it would manufacture its devices locally in India, in a show of commitment to the Prime Minister Narendra Modi's "Make-in-India" initiative. The company kicked off its 'Make in India' plans with the launch of its first smartphone manufactured in India -- Redmi 2 Prime. All of Xiaomi's phones are manufactured in Sri City, Andhra Pradesh, in partnership with Foxconn Technology Group.

"The 'Make-in-India' programme allows us to cut costs. We can operate here either with little or zero inventory. Over time, every Xiaomi phone sold in India will be made in India," Hugo Barra, vice president, Xiaomi Global, had said.

The company has been teasing fans in the country leading them on to guess the model of its next smartphone launch on December 15.

According to the conversation between Xiaomi India and Amazon on Twitter with hashtag #PrimeIsComing revealed that is not Redmi Note 2 Prime. All the latest tweets from Xiaomi India hinted that it could launch the successor to the Redmi Note 4G.

The first tweet read: "#PrimeIsComing with twice the memory than its predecessor!" The photo shows the earpiece and capacitive buttons of the smartphone and has a caption, "16GB flash memory with 32GB microSD slot."

The tweet which follows the first one reads: "If you're looking for stunning display, look no further! #PrimeIsComing." As per a BGR.in report, the photo showed the smartphone's display and a book with "99 99," which could have been a hint that the smartphone would be priced at 9,999.

There are also rumours that Xiaomi would launch the Mi 5 in the country on January 21.
