Last week, we reported that Xiaomi is finally launching laptops in India. The companyâ€™s Indian fans have waited long for its MacBook-inspired machines, which have received pretty favorable reviews around the world.
Now, Xiaomi has confirmed that it will launch a brand new Mi-branded laptop in India on June 11. The brand has also sent us a media invite for the launch which will take place online across Xiaomiâ€™s social media channels at 12PM IST on the aforementioned date. The invite has a Mi NotebookÂ hashtag too.
The June launch date was previously leaked by 91Mobiles in collaboration with tipster Ishan Agarwal. The leakers claimed that the company will launch an Intel Core i7-powered RedmiBook 13 in India. However, Xiaomiâ€™s latest announcement suggests this will be a brand new machine, tailored specifically for the Indian market.

According to a Windows Central report, Xiaomiâ€™s new laptop in India will be a custom variant of the Mi Notebooks that it sells in China. Itâ€™s expected to feature a 13-inch FHD display, an Intel processor, at least 8GB of RAM, and 256GB of storage.
Some Mi laptop models were also recently certified by Bluetooth SIG and a number of them, including a Mi Notebook 14 with model number XMA1904, are brand new laptops that donâ€™t exist in China. Itâ€™s possible that one of these is the Xiaomi laptop headed to India.
Then again, as tipped by Ishan Agarwal, we could also see a rebranded RedmiBook with some altered specifications.
For now, all thatâ€™s confirmed is an India launch date. Weâ€™ll update you as and when we know more about Xiaomiâ€™s laptop plans in India.
