The nationwide Coronavirus lockdown has resulted in several companies asking their employees to work from home. This has also resulted in an increased demand for personal computers.
While there have been rumors about Xiaomi launching its laptops in the country for over a year now, the company probably wants to cash in on the work from home culture by launching affordable laptops.
