Xiaomi, which is called China’s Apple, has diversified its product offerings a lot lately. It has moved from smartphones to connected devices and has even entered electric bicycle very recently.
While PC shipments have been declining for the past few quarters, the last quarter results indicate PC sales to be rebounding from its sharp fall. With Xiaomi now looking to venture into the laptop market, it remains to be seen whether they will continue with the high-end specs and low-pricing tactic as they have done with smartphones.
