POCO Laptop passes BIS certification in India hinting at imminent launch


POCO, a sub-brand of China-based Xiaomi, has been focused on expanding its product lineup after being silent for a few months. And moving forward, the company isn’t limiting itself to just smartphones.

It appears that the company is soon going to launch its own laptops in the Indian market. As per the report, two battery models — R15B02W and R14B02W have passed through the BIS certification process, hinting towards imminent launch.

The battery models are from POCO and Xiaomi, which means that the upcoming laptops from the POCO brand are likely to be the rebranded model of the Redmi laptops. We expect to get more details in the coming weeks.

Xiaomi has already launched its own laptop in the Indian market but the Redmi-branded laptops, which have been launched in China, are yet to debut in India. But now it seems that the Redmi laptops will go official in India under the POCO brand, as the company.

In line with the company’s plan of expanding the product portfolio in India, along with the laptops, POCO is also expected to launch its own TWS earphones

. Given that POCO is positioned as a budget brand, both the upcoming products — laptop and TWS earbuds are likely to be priced aggressively.

The R15B02W battery seems to be powering the Xiaomi Pro 15.6-inch laptop that has been launched in China. This could mean that the same device could go official in India under the POCO brand but it’s just speculation at this point in time. To know for sure, we will have to wait for the official launch.


It’s noteworthy that while POCO is positioning itself as an independent brand, the company is still relying on Xiaomi for supply chain, manufacturing facilities, and software, and more.
