Is Mi Notebook a rebranded RedmiBook?
91mobiles reported yesterday that the first Xiaomi laptop launching in India could be a rebranded RedmiBook 13, as per a tip by Ishan Agarwal. The tipster shared some marketing material that showed a bezel-less FHD display and Intel Core i7 processor, among other things.
However, Manu Kumar Jain said in his tweet that the Mi Notebook is “not exactly what you’re thinking,” which could mean that the Mi Notebook will not be a rebranded RedmiBook 13. There is no official word yet on the model’s specifications and design, so things are still up in the air. That being said, you should not expect the Mi Notebook to launch with an affordable price tag. The company revealed last week that the laptop will look to attract creators and gamers with powerful hardware.
