Xiaomi wants to dominate every single segment of the market. We can literally say, they’re on fire. Not only do they currently sell premium specced phones at very cheap prices, they also make tablets, smart TV’s, earphones and wearables.
Just recently, we learnt they may start using thier own processors next year. New reports suggest that they’re preparing laptops likely to be launched next year. In an interview, chairman of Inventec Corp (one of Xiaomi’s partners) Richard Lee revealed the info. In his words:
“I am upbeat about the business outlook for Xiaomi’s notebook computers, as the firm has more than 200 million registered smartphone users”
“I am not sure if the smartphone approach will be applicable to notebooks, but I expect Xiaomi’s entry into the notebook industry to bring something new to the market”
“We will start shipping Xiaomi’s notebook computers in the first or second quarter of next year”, he added.
It’s also likely that the laptops will come with a cheap price tag. The news truly is exciting, and maybe, just maybe, I’ve found my next laptop.
