Xiaomi may start officially shipping its laptops to Russia by the end of autumn. This is reported by Izvestia with reference to a source in the partner company of the Chinese vendor.

If the Chinese corporation starts supplying laptops in Russia, it will become perhaps the first well-known vendor to enter the Russian market after the start of a special military operation in Ukraine and the sanctions campaign, one of the interlocutors of the publication noted.

It is noted that officially Xiaomi has so far imported into Russia only smartphones, accessories, small household appliances, TVs and other items, but not laptops.

According to Mobile Research Group, despite the lack of official imports, there was a demand for Xiaomi laptops in the country – at the beginning of 2022, they occupied 3.5-4 percent of the market for these devices in physical terms. According to Eldar Murtazin, a leading analyst at the company, if direct deliveries really begin, this share could increase significantly. He believes that Xiaomi’s entry into the Russian laptop market will allow the company to significantly increase sales.

Previously, iPhone 14 sellers were accused of violating the law. The Russian Association of Trading Companies and Producers of Electrical Household and Computer Equipment (RATEK) stated that new models of smartphones cannot be sold legally on the Russian market. RATEK’s claim boils down to the fact that for legal circulation on the Russian market, new smartphone models must receive the necessary certificates, declarations and notifications about the characteristics of encryption tools and goods of the EAEU, or the conclusion of the Center for Licensing, Certification and Protection of State Secrets of the FSB.
