Redmi Laptop To Launch With Redmi X On May 13: Is It Coming To India?
Xiaomi produces an array of products including consumer electronics. While it’s famous in India for its smartphones, there are some great non-smartphone products under Xiaomi available in China. After sidelining Redmi as an independent brand, the sub-brand is rumoured to be launching its own laptop now.
The speculated Redmi laptop will launch alongside Redmi X on May 13.
The company has already confirmed the launch date for its upcoming flagship, Redmi X (aka Redmi K20 Pro).
Xiaomi will unveil the flagship just a day before OnePlus 7 series in China to take on the entry-premium segment. The upcoming Redmi flagship will share a lot of features with the much-hyped OnePlus 7 Pro including the pop-up sensor, Snapdragon 855 chip, three rear cameras and more.
Coming back to the Redmi laptop, let’s check out what’s cooking at Xiaomi’s newly separated independent brand.
Redmi To Launch Budget Laptop Alongside Redmi X On May 13
While the new Xiaomi sub-brand has been scaling up very rapidly, it has been able to add up more than half a dozen phones in less than two quarters. After its first independent launch in China back in January, the company has been able to deliver multiple smartphones at some great value-for-money pricings.
Do note, that Redmi still operates under Xiaomi in India because of the latest FDI rules. The company uses the Redmi By Xiaomi tag for its Redmi smartphones in the country.
From entry budget handsets to mid-budget to upper midrange, and now a entry premium flagship, Redmi has set a new tone for the company.
