Xiaomi has officially teased that its soon going to launch its range of Mi laptops in India. The company’s Twitter handle posted a teaser tagging Dell, Acer, HP, Lenovo and Asus, confirming the much-awaited launch, that earlier leaks have indicated is set to happen sometime in June.
While the company hasn’t revealed specifically which laptops are coming to India, previous rumours have indicated that it could be the RedmiBook 14. Having said that, as the tweet comes from the Mi Twitter handle instead of Redmi, we believe the company could launch Mi Book Air, Mi Book Pro or Mi Gaming laptop in India.
Some leaks and rumours in the past have also indicated that Xiaomi could introduce the RedmiBook in India as the trademark for RedmiBook was seen listed on the Indian Intellectual Property website hinting at an imminent launch. However, it remains to be seen whether the company will set foot in the laptop market of India with the RedmiBook range of laptops.
Xiaomi offers laptops under two brands in China-- Mi and Redmi with the latter targeted towards affordable offerings. In fact, the company recently announced three new laptops in the RedmiBook range of thin and light laptops in 13-inch, 14-inch and 16-inch screen sizes. These laptops are powered by AMD Ryzen 4000 series of processors paired with upto 16GB RAM and 1TB storage options to choose from. Though we still don’t know any details about the laptop(s) that are going to launch in India.
Xiaomi laptops have been drawing much attention in India from the past few years after the company made its mark in the Indian smartphone market by offering affordable and dependable phones. Manu Kumar Jain, MD at Xiaomi India has previously highlighted the company’s ambition to launch laptops in India. By his own admission, Xiaomi laptops are something the Mi fans have been demanding since a long time and in a video released earlier this year, Manu assured that the company will have something for its fans “very soon”.
Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, the launch schedules of many products for the year 2020 have been impacted and as such it could still be a while till we see Xiaomi release its first laptop in India. The latest leaks have indicated June as the possible month for the launch and we’ll know more as we near the official reveal.
