There is a rumor that Redmi is not satisfied with just producing budget-friendly smartphones and phablets and intends to move into creating laptops too. The sub-brand’s parent company, Xiaomi, has been in the notebook business for a few years now, and it has won praise for products such as the Mi Notebook Pro and Mi Notebook Air.

A rumor has been posted online that the Chinese smartphone-manufacturer Redmi is planning on expanding its scope of operations by plunging into the world of laptops. Obviously, there are scant details about this possible eventuality at the moment, although it is believed the company would utilize the Redmi brand name and the familiar “Mi” logo.

Xiaomi has released laptops using decent components: For example, the 2018 Mi Notebook Pro that we reviewed featured a Kaby Lake-R i7-8550U SoC, 16 GB RAM, a GeForce MX150 graphics solution from Nvidia, and a 256 GB Samsung PM961 SSD. The company also has a line of powerful gaming laptops that can be fitted with GeForce GTX 1060 GPUs. So where would this leave Redmi?

The most obvious answer is the low-cost laptop market. Redmi is proving itself to be a savvy builder of smartphones and phablets that manage to combine quality with affordability. It seems logical that the same philosophy would be applied to any laptop the Xiaomi sub-brand created.
