I had a Samsung Galaxy A8 (2018) phone but its display was dying, so I managed to get a backup of the phone through the Samsung Switch app to my laptop.

Now I got a new Xiaomi phone and I want to add the backup to it, how can I do that?

You can't.

The Samsung Switch software allows taking a backup from most non-Samsung phones including iPhone and old Windows phones and, of course, other Android phones, but can only recover backups to Samsung Galaxy phones.

Note: Smart Switch lets you transfer content from old phones to Galaxy devices only. For example, you cannot transfer content to an iOS device.
