The Xiaomi RedmiBook 13, the Chinese company’s powerful mid-range laptop running Windows 10, is about to launch outside China. A new report confirms Xiaomi will rebrand the RedmiBook laptop under its popular umbrella sub-brand ‘Mi’. The company had previously indicated that its devices would sport a slightly higher price tag.

He claims Xiaomi will launch the RedmiBook 13 laptop in the second week of June, this year, in India. Although Xiaomi is yet to officially acknowledge, it further adds the company is expected to rebrand the laptop under its regional and highly successful Mi brand in the country.
