Redmi was reacting to the announcement of plans to bring its Realm Book laptop to Realm. Towards the end of the Redmi Note 10 5G launch event, Xiaomi has quietly teased the name Redmibook for India. Not with a teaser image or glasses, only the name was displayed. It doesn’t take much to find Redmi plans to jump into the affordable laptop segment, especially in the realm of resistance.
Neither Me nor Redmi channels have yet been able to follow this teaser, which suggests that the launch is a bit far away. The RedmiBook series was a long-running series of affordable Windows laptops in China, and Xiaomi finally plans to bring it here. The company launched the Mi Notebook series last year, upgrading to four different models (and towards the end of 2020).
Redmibook laptops tease India
So far, all the MI notebook models that Xiaomi sells in India are part of China’s RedMibbook lineup. In fact, rumors suggest that two new notebook models are planned for India later this year. The Mi Notebook Pro 14 and Mi Notebook Ultra 15 are expected to be called, these two models are expected to be based on their Redmi part.
It seems that Xiaomi also plans to apply MI brand premium tags for laptops, which is why it needs the Redmi brand for affordable services. Xiaomi has already sold the RedmiBook laptops to AMD Raisin chips in China and is looking to launch them in India at affordable prices.
Currently, the cheapest laptop that Xiaomi is selling in India is the Mi Notebook 14 e-learning version, priced at Rs 38,999. This model comes with an Intel 10Th The General Intel Core i3 processor is paired with 8GB RAM, 256GB M2 SSD storage, a full HD 14-inch display and provides 10 hours of battery life. We reviewed this laptop last year and found that it is more than capable of doing just the basics.
On the other hand, the affordable notebook segment is seeing a huge influx of Chromebook laptops from Asus and HP. Asus relies on four new Chromebook models starting from 17,999 depending on the Intel Celeron processor and sets different features in different form factor. At Rs 21,999, the HP Chromebook relies on 11a MediaTek chipset and another 11-inch display.
