What you need to know
- A new teaser suggests Xiaomi is all set to launch its laptops in India.
- We don't know if the Chinese manufacturer is bringing its budget-focused RedmiBook or the full-fledged Mi Notebook series.
- Either way, we don't have to wait long to find out.
Xiaomi has been making laptops in the Mi Notebook series for some time now, but the models were exclusive to China. That is set to change soon as the Chinese manufacturer has posted a teaser on Twitter suggesting it is bringing its laptops to India.
The teaser sees Xiaomi India waving to Dell, Acer, HP, Lenovo, and ASUS, and it's easy to make the connection:
At this point, we don't know if Xiaomi is planning to bring its RedmiBook to India, or if the brand will launch the Mi Notebook series in the country. It is possible we'll see the former, considering the Indian market is gravitated to the budget segment.
It is exciting that Xiaomi is bringing its laptops to India. The brand dominates phone sales, and in 2020 it is looking to diversify its offerings in the country. To that effect, it already launched the Mi Box 4K — a budget Android TV streaming box — and a lot of true wireless earbuds. Xiaomi is seen as an ecosystem player in China, and it is looking increasingly likely that the brand is planning the same for the Indian market.
Xiaomi doesn't wait around once it starts teasing a product, so we should be hearing more on this front in the coming days. Xiaomi fans, what are you excited about?
