Xioami has not revealed any technical details of the laptop. It is expected that the Mi Notebook could be the rebranded Redmibook 13 introduced in December last year.
Unlike its smartphones, Xiaomi has reportedly mentioned that this laptop will not be cheap. The Core i5 laptop was priced starting at RMB 4,199 (around Rs 44,500) going up to RMB 5,199 (around Rs 54,900) for the i7 variant.
The Redmibook 13 comes with a 13.3-inch FHD display, 10th generation Intel processors with up to 8GB of RAM and 512GB SSD storage, with options of 2GB discrete NVIDIA GeForce MX250 graphics card. It has a 40Whr battery that can be recharged to 50 per cent in less than 35 minutes, and lasts 11 hours of video playback on a single charge.
