Xiaomi Notebook has been circulating in rumors since last year. Lately, the number of leaks and rumors have spiked up high as the company is believed to announce the same at a conference to be held on July 27.
Though there is no official confirmation from Xiaomi about the launch of the Notebook at the event, the information that is surfacing online lately sheds light on the complete picture of the upcoming Xiaomi Notebook.
Here, we have come up with a roundup of what we can expect from the Xiaomi Notebook for your reference. Take a look at the rumor roundup from below.
Xiaomi Notebook to feature a aluminum body
When it comes to the design perspective, the Xiaomi Notebook is likely to feature a sleek aluminum lightweight body. As per the rumors, the upcoming PC might look similar to the Apple's MacBook lineup that will make it a good looking laptop. Even a real life image of the device along with the Mi logo leaked online.
Three variants expected
The Xiaomi Notebook is expected to arrive in three display sizes such as 12.5-inch, 13.3-inch and 15.6-inch. If this turns out to be true, the Mi fans will surely be spoilt for choice.
The smallest and cheapest base variant
The 12.5-inch variant of the Xiaomi Notebook could be the smallest, cheapest and base-level variant. As per the existing rumors, this one will be powered by a modest Intel Atom processor, but there is not clear evidence for the same. Xiaomi is known for releasing cheap yet powerful devices, so it is likely to expect efficient processors such as Core i5 in the 12.5-inch model. But, if the Atom processor is going to be used in the Xiaomi Notebook, the device could be priced very low.
Large screen variant could be delayed
The large screen 15.6-inch variant of the Xiaomi Notebook might not be released anytime sooner. On the other hand, the two smaller variants are expected to be released soon. The smaller 12.5-inch model has already entered mass production.
MIUI for PC or Windows?
There are rumors that the company will tweak the MIUI for the PCs, but that might not be the case. Xiaomi has had a decent relationship with Microsoft and a few of its smartphones including Mi 4 runs Windows. So, we can expect the same to continue for the laptops as well.
30,000 Units to be Shipped this year
Earlier, there were reports that Xiaomi might target shipping 1 million units of the Mi Notebooks this year, but now, the latest report says that the company might ship just 30,000 units of the device this year. The report adds that the initial shipments of the products are not massive.
An alleged PPT presentation has leaked the Notebook and most details. It shows the use of a Core i7-6700HQ processor teamed up with GTX 970 graphics, 16 GB RAM and 512 GB hard disk drive. The display is likely to have 4K resolution. The Standard edition is to arrive with Core i5-6200U processor, 8 GB RAM, HD 520 graphics and 256 GB of storage.
8 GB RAM onboard
The 13.3-inch Xiaomi Notebook variant is expected to employ a powerful Core i7-6500U processor that is teamed up with 8 GB of RAM. The laptop is likely to run on Windows 10 Pro. There could be a USB Type-C port to charge the device and there will not be a touch feature. There are rumors that the 13.3-inch variant of the Xiaomi Notebook is rumored to be priced around 3,000 Yuan (approx. Rs 30,000). If it is true, it will definitely be an amazing price tag for the laptop.
Pricing Too Leaks
The high-end variant of the Mi Notebook is to be priced at 6,699 Yuan (approx. Rs 67,000) and the Standard edition could be priced at 3,999 Yuan (approx. Rs 40,00).
