Poco Laptops India Launch Imminent as Redmi G Battery Certified with Poco Branding

Could Poco launch a laptop in India? Here's what we know.

Redmi G 2021

Earlier this month Poco’s head of product marketing, Angus Ng, in an interview revealed that the company is looking to expand its ecosystem and launch some new wearables and AIoT products in 2022. The brand is expected to first launch an audio product (most likely a TWS) and then power banks, or even some affordable wearables. But, it looks like Poco is gearing to launch something even big. 

Although, according to a new report from 91mobiles, Poco might soon launch a laptop in India. As spotted by tipster Mukul Sharma, a Redmi G series laptop battery has been certified by India’s Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS). The launch hints at an imminent launch of Poco’s first laptop in the country. 

As per the report, a Redmi G series laptop battery with build number G16B01W was recently spotted on the BIS website under Poco branding. The battery comes with a 3,620mAh capacity which is a 55.02Wh battery unit. While this battery looks like a replacement battery, Poco could very well launch a gaming laptop. But, nothing is confirmed as of now.

It is also worth mentioning that this is not the first time a Redmi branded battery has been listed under Poco branding. However, it is the first time since Poco announced its ecosystem expansion. Joining the dots, we can say that Poco might be looking to launch a laptop in India in the coming months. However, for now, it is better to take these with a slight grain of salt. 

The Redmi G 2021 gaming laptop sports a 16-inch display with a 144Hz refresh rate. It is powered by an Intel Core i5-11260H processor and is paired with 16GB of RAM and 512GB of internal storage. There is also an AMD Ryzen 7 5800 variant, which comes with 8GB of RAM and 512GB of storage. 

Apart from the product lineup, Poco is also working to add more customizations that will be exclusive to Poco devices only.
