What you need to know

  • Xiaomi India head Manu Kumar Jain showed off the laptop that's slated to make its debut in India.
  • The laptop in question isn't a part of the current Mi Notebook series or the RedmiBook.
  • Xiaomi will instead offer a custom version tailored just for the Indian market.

Xiaomi finally announced that it is launching its laptop in India, and today Xiaomi India head and global VP Manu Jain showed off the laptop in question. We get to see a brief glimpse design of the laptop, but there's no mention of the internal hardware.

But what we can confirm is that the laptop that Xiaomi will launch in India isn't a part of the current Mi Notebook or RedmiBook lineups. It is a brand-new variant designed for the Indian market. So while the design itself is identical to the Mi Notebook, it will have differentiated hardware features.

We don't have the details on what sort of internal hardware the laptop will feature in India, but we can make a few guesses. It will likely offer a 13-inch FHD screen along with a Core i5 chipset, at least 8GB of RAM, and 256GB of internal storage. The standout feature on the Mi Notebook Pro series is the NVIDIA GeForce MX250 video card, so we'll have to wait and see if that materializes on the variant that Xiaomi is bringing to India. But given the segment that Xiaomi is aiming at, there is a high possibility that we will see a dedicated video card of some sort on the notebook.

It is exciting that Xiaomi is offering a custom version of its laptop in India. We should have more details for you over the coming days and weeks, so stay tuned for more. Eager to know what it's like to use the Mi Notebook? We have you covered:
