Xiaomi India MD Manu Jain confirmed that Mi laptop will launch in India on June 11, 2020 which is next week. This Laptop is exclusively designed for India.
After releasing the teaser of the Mi laptop last week, Xiaomi has finally given the release date of the Mi Notebook in India which will be on June11. The Chinese Company is all set to launch its laptop and India will witness its first global launch in the upcoming week. The launch date was revealed by Xiaomi India Chief Manu Kumar Jain via tweet where he also stated that the laptop has been designed by keeping in mind the Indian customers and the features are exclusive to India. This ultimately brings us to expect the features of the laptop are going to be primarily focused on the Indian users and modified as per the requirements of Indians. After winning the Indian customers in the smartphones category, the company is all set to be a tough competition to the laptop brands like HP, Dell, Apple and Lenovo in the Indian market. The company will launch the laptops in the similar manner as earlier the other Mi products were launched in India i.e. online launch.
As stated by the company, the laptop will be available in global markets by this year but they are all set to launch first in India because of the potential buyers in Indian market and the popularity of the brand among Indians. Xiaomi has taken a smart move by launching laptop at this time as the world is going through pandemic and people are preferring work from home which ultimately aims at increasing sales of the laptops. So, considering this factor we may not be wrong to expect more Mi laptops launches in the coming times.
According to a report, the Mi Notebook will be a rebranding of the RedmiBook 13 with better internal parts. The RedmiBook 13 is already available in China since last December and was priced at approximately INR 44,000 for the base model. Just like Mi and Redmi phones, Indian customers are expecting their laptops to be in an affordable range too but the recent reports suggested that this may not be the case. Well, for the pricing of the laptops we shall wait till the launch of Mi Notebooks.
