[Update: Xiaomi has now confirmed that it’s a laptop launch by tagging leading laptop vendors in India and saying hello]
Xiaomi has been rumoured to launch its laptops in India for a while now. Xiaomi India head Manu Kumar Jain reportedly told retailers that the company was planning to launch its laptops in the country soon. In a tweet posted today, Jain has pretty much confirmed that the next product launch from the company will be a laptop.
Since the Xiaomi sub-brand, Redmi recently launched the RedmiBook 13, 14 and 16 it was natural for people to assume that the same laptops would be launched in India. However, Xiaomi replied to a few tweets suggesting that the product would launch under the Mi brand. Several Xiaomi executives have also teased the upcoming launch with the hashtag ‘#WhatsNextForMi’, confirming that it’s indeed Mi product.

In the video, Jain can be seen working on a laptop, slamming down the lid and saying “It’s time”. The tweet also features an emoji of a man with a laptop. There is some speculation that the “It’s time” phrase hints at a smartwatch and not laptop, so we’ll have to wait for more information before we can confirm the final product.
