Xiaomi plans laptop launch in the next few weeks – Deccan Chronicle
According to a report, Xiaomi has delayed the launch of a Mi laptop. Rumors about the laptop have been making numerous reports for more than a year now. DigiTimes reported that the company will delay the launch of their first notebook to the second quarter of 2016. The report mentions that Xiaomi wants to now ‘fine tune’ its strategy and make a single screen-sized (12.5-inch) model rather than having two.
The Chinese tech giant has been manufacturing consumer electronics ranging from phones and tablets to household electronics such as water filters and air purifiers too. The first update about Xiaomi working on a laptop that looks similar to the Apple MacBook Air was out in December 2014 and a few images of the same were leaked out by GizmoChina. The silver shell features with a bright orange Mi logo on the rear and front. Along with the photos, the source also leaked out the specifications for the notebook. The Mi notebook was earlier said to be built using an Intel i7-4500u processor with 2 x 8GB dial-channel RAM. However, since Intel has newer processors in line, the specifications may change for the better.
The notebook is also said to sport a 12.5-inch full HD display and will run Windows 10 as the operating system. Earlier reports mentioned Linux as the operating system. There is no present information about the internal storage or the battery as yet. But more information and leaks will soon bring the entire specifications to light.
The notebook was earlier rumored to be crowned with a price tag of $481, which is approximately around Rs 29,000. If true, the Mi notebook will definitely be a worthy product to own.
