According to the first information, the Redmi brand conference is to take place on May 13 in China. In our recent article we informed that Tang Mu - General Manager of the Xiaomi Smart Hardware Division - informed about the date of the mentioned event in his status on the Weibo social network.
One more thing
It is speculated that the phone will be introduced on this day Redmi K20 Pro - the flagship with the Snapdragon 855 processor. However, Tang also secretly mentioned in his status that Redmi would start or introduce one more thing on this day - "one more thing".
At the last Redmi conference in China in March 2019, it presented two products that do not belong to the world of mobile phones. It is a Redmi 1A washing machine and also very popular headphones Redmi AirDots. Enthusiastic fans and fans of the Xiaomi and Redmi brands are speculating which product it will be this time. Some information talks about smart home appliances.
An interesting status worth considering
Sudhanshu Ambhore has several times aptly informed about the upcoming news. This time he published information on Twitter that the mentioned "new thing" could be the Redmi laptop. According to this information, the Redmi brand should also present a new laptop with its top smartphone. A similar situation has occurred in the past with Xiaomi.
However, the information is not verified, so we will have to wait another three days. The parent company Xiaomi is already successfully producing laptops. In Redmi, they would theoretically not have to deal with production technology from the ground up.
Following the example of Huawei and Honor
If we take into account that laptops are also brought to the market by Huawei with its Honor subsidiary, namely MateBook and MagicBook, this step from Redmi would be quite logical, even competitive.
We know the young Redmi brand as a manufacturer of more affordable equipment than the parent Xiaomi. We can expect that even potential laptops could be in a lower price range. Whether it is at the expense of the materials used or the hardware equipment is questionable.
It is also possible that the Redmi laptop may be an exclusive product exclusively for the Chinese market, which we would not be very happy about.
