Xiaomi and Huawei are the two most successful smartphone manufacturers in China at the moment. These two companies are constantly battling for the number one spot in China, and it will be interesting to see what happens this year. Huawei has managed to become world’s third largest OEM in 2015, and Xiaomi is aiming to expand to more markets this year. That being said, both of these companies are planning on releasing laptops this year, at least according to various reports. Inventec has already confirmed that Xiaomi’s laptop is on the way, and Huawei is also said to be working on such a product.
That being said, some new info has surfaced regarding Huawei’s laptop. Now, according to this info, the company will actually introduce a hybrid laptop later in the year. This laptop will, reportedly, going to run both Windows and Android, so you’ll basically get dual boot here. Now, according to an industry source, the laptop will come with a detachable keyboard as well. So, it seems like Huawei is getting ready to launch a somewhat different product to Xiaomi, but still quite an interesting one. Xiaomi will, according to reports, announce a rather standard laptop, unlike Huawei’s hybrid offering. Keep in mind that this is not confirmed info, of course, these are only rumors at this point, even though they come from an industry source. We also don’t know when will this hybrid laptop launch, all that source said is ‘later this year’.
As you all probably know, Xiaomi has already released two tablets to the market, the Mi Pad and Mi Pad 2. The Mi Pad 2 has been announced quite recently actually, and Huawei has also introduced the MediaPad M2 10-inch variant recently as well. These two companies will go head-to-head on various levels it seems, which means we’re in for a rather interesting year. Will Xiaomi going to be able to battle Huawei, a company which has been around for a long time and has already entered a number of markets around the world? Well, we’ll see, but Xiaomi has definitely proved its worth, they should not be underestimated.
