Xiaomi is one of the favourite tech brands of Indians. It has been consistently providing the Indian audience with innovative products at competitive prices. The Chinese company has not only set up shop in India, but also expanded its scope by venturing beyond smartphones, into TVs and smart devices.
Recently, the brand also entered the already bursting laptop market in India. It made its grand entry just a few days ago with the Mi NoteBook series. Xiaomi launched 2 new laptop models — Mi NoteBook Horizon Edition and Mi NoteBook with four different variants. The variant of Mi NoteBook currently available is the Mi NoteBook 14 which starts at a price of Rs.41,999. The Horizon edition begins at Rs.54,999. They are both great options if you’re looking for a laptop with a screen size lesser than 15 inches, and are ready to buy a laptop on EMI to make up for the cost.

Let us now look at the latest news from Xiaomi in the laptop department. Although the Indian launch of this brand new product hasn’t been announced yet, we can’t help being excited and counting down to the big reveal.
The Mi Notebook Pro 15 (2020)
On the 12th of June, we got some more great news from Xiaomi, as the new Xiaomi laptop, Mi Notebook Pro 15 (2020) was launched in its home country, China. The new 15-inches laptop has two different variants. Its body is surprisingly slim for a 15-inch laptop, a feature that laptop users in India have been demanding for a long time.
The latest Xiaomi laptop comes in two variants based on processor, RAM and storage.
- The Intel 10th Generation Core i5 + 512 GB storage + 8GB RAM version
- The Intel 10th Generation Core i7 + 1TB storage + 16GB RAM version
The lower model costs CNY 6000 in China, which is about Rs.64,199 in India, while the higher Core i7 edition costs CNY 7000 (approximately Rs.74,899 in India). Both the models are currently available in only one colour option which is silver. The price is pretty reasonable for a laptop with this kind of configuration. If you are in urgent need of a new laptop or simply cannot wait to get your hands on this one, you can always go for a laptop on EMI option with Tata Capital’s easy-to-secure Consumer Durable Loans.
