Xiaomi has been consistently teasing users about the launch of their new laptop series. The latest addition to the series is a direct call to all the popular laptop brands in the country. Xiaomi tweeted a short video with what looks like outlines of a laptop.
In the tweet Xiaomi stated, ‘Hey there Dell_IN, Acer_India, HPIndia, Lenovo_in and ASUSIndia.

All three sizes are sold with AMD Ryzen chipsets and provide configurations up to 16GB of RAM and 1TB of storage. The three laptops will be going on sale in China from 1 June.
Xiaomi will start selling these laptops in the month of June. Leaks by tipster Ishan Agarwal claimed that the company’s chief Manu Kumar Jain even had conversations with retailers regarding the launch of Xiaomi and Redmi laptops, media reported.
