Xiaomi will reportedly launch the RedmiBook and Mi-branded laptops in India soon. The devices were to be launched in India, and Xiaomi earlier this year even trademarked the RedmiBook moniker in the Indian market, hinting at the arrival of the first laptop in India.
As per tipster Ishan Agarwal on Twitter, Xiaomi India MD and Xiaomi Global Vice President, Manu Kumar Jain recently in an online meeting told retailers RedmiBook and Mi-branded laptops will launch in India soon.
His tweet reads, “@manukumarjain said in today’s online meeting with retailers that Mi/ Redmi Laptops will launch in India ASAP (HOPE!). Didn’t provide any concrete date/timeline. Not planning to launch any Tabs like Mi Pad, though. Didn’t comment on upcoming launches like Mi 10 lite/K30 Pro”.
However an exact launch of the device or its availability is not revealed at the moment. It seems that the launch might happen once the lockdown has been lifted in the country. Currently Indian government has extended the lockdown till May 3.
