New rumors have surfaced revealing that Huawei and Xiaomi may be working to expand their product catalogue by releasing their own laptop computers.
Huawei is already known for producing solid-state drives for commercial use so they’ll be able to use that for their laptops. The company also produces their own processors for their flagship smartphones so they might be developing their own processor for their laptop as well.
But analyst Sun Changxu posted on her Weibo account stating that the Xiaomi and Huawei notebooks will feature Intel processors because the processors both companies normally use aren’t compatible with Windows due to its x86 architecture.
Additionally, she stated that Huawei’s laptop will most probably be targeted towards business users while Xiaomi’s laptop will be targeted at mainstream consumers.
If both companies decide to produce affordable laptops that feature high-end performance specifications then they could shake up the notebook market the same way their smartphones shook up the flagship smartphone market.[source]
