Xiaomi will reportedly be hosting an event in China on May 13. At the launch event, the company is expected to launch a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855-powered flagship phone. Alongside this phone, it is also said to take the wraps off “one more thing”. A few reports assert that it could be a smart home device. Now, a fresh report suggests that alongside the Redmi flagship, a Redmi laptop will also make its debut.
Similar to Xiaomi’s Mi Notebook, Redmi is said to release “their laptops” alongside the flagship phone. Gizmochina reported that this information was shared by tipster Sudhanshu Ambhore. There could be a possibility that we might get to see a Redmi laptop considering that Xiaomi already makes computers. It is basically similar to how Huawei and Honor both sell computers under the MateBook and MagicBook line respectively.
Furthermore, the upcoming Redmi laptop might be available with a cheaper price tag in comparison to Xiaomi’s current offerings. But, the device might also offer toned down specifications or features. The cited source also highlighted that “the Redmi Notebook may be a China-exclusive product.” Currently, there is no information about the new Redmi laptop in terms of features and specifications.
