Xiaomi’s Redmi is best known for affordable smartphones, but
the company ventured into the affordable laptop market last
year with RedmiBook. Xiaomi’s RedmiBook is a lineup of
affordable notebooks powered by Windows 10 and it remains
exclusive to the Chinese market for now.

Xiaomi is diversifying its laptop lineup and RedmiBook 13 with
a narrow-edge display was recently unveiled in China to take on
Huawei MateBook 13.

It appears that Xiaomi will finally begin selling RedmiBook
outside China and India could be its first overseas market.
According to a new trademark filing in India, Xiaomi may be
looking to launch its laptop in the country before expanding
its presence to North America and Europe.

RedmiBook trademark

Xiaomi has registered a trademark for
‘RedmiBook’ brand in the country and the application was filed
last year with the Intellectual Property India, an
authority that comes under Ministry of Commerce and Industry.
According to the listing, the trademark is valid up to April
2029.

As per usual, we don’t know for sure if RedmiBook will launch
in India in 2020 and whether Xiaomi has any plans to expand the
lineup to Europe or North America.

Xiaomi’s laptop lineup has mainly consisted of Apple copycats
like the Mi Notebook Air, but RedmiBook is a decent and
affordable laptop.

or i7 processors, and it is also offered with 2GB of dedicated

The price of RedmiBook 14 is CNY 4,000 in China, which
translates to $573 in the United States, €510 in Europe, and
Rs. 41,000 in India.

On the other hand, RedmiBook 13 features a 13.3-inch full-HD
