Xiaomi might finally launch its Redmi-branded laptop in India in a few weeks. It is tipped to launch Xiaomi RedmiBook 14 in India in June this year. Slashleaks claims that a person from inside the company confirmed this launch news. Last month, Xiaomi’s MD Manu Kumar Jain in an online meeting with retailers reportedly said that Redmi laptops will soon be launched in India.
So, the latest claim by the cited source could be true. The laptop is already available in China. So, if Xiaomi launches RedmiBook 14 in India, then the price could be under Rs 50,000. The Xiaomi RedmiBook 14 was launched in China with a starting price of RMB 3,999 (around Rs 42,720). This price is for the base model, which comes with 8GB RAM, 256GB SSD storage, and Intel Core i5 processor. It is important to note that the brand hasn’t yet officially confirmed the India launch of this Redmi laptop.
