Last week, we reported that Xiaomi is finally launching laptops in India. The company’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 Xiaomi’s social media channels at 12PM IST on the aforementioned date. The invite has a Mi Notebook 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, Xiaomi’s latest announcement suggests this will be a brand new machine, tailored specifically for the Indian market.

According to a Windows Central report, Xiaomi’s new laptop in India will be a custom variant of the Mi Notebooks that it sells in China. It’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 don’t exist in China. It’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 that’s confirmed is an India launch date. We’ll update you as and when we know more about Xiaomi’s laptop plans in India.
