That said, the company has been rumoured to launch the Mi Notebook Pro 14 and the Mi NoteBook Ultra 15.6 in India. Chances are that these might be the backlit laptops being talked about.
The Mi Notebook Pro 14 and the Mi Notebook Ultra 15.6 are expected to be powered by 11th Gen Intel Core processors. The latter could be the Mi NoteBook Pro X 15 that has a 3.5K OLED screen that has already been launched in China. It also comes with Wi-Fi 6, NVIDIA RTX 3050 Ti graphics, and more.
The Mi Notebook Pro 14 comes with a 2.5K display that supports a 120Hz refresh rate, Wi-Fi 6, DTS Surround Sound, a fingerprint scanner, and loads more.
It remains to be seen when the new Mi Notebooks arrive in India.
Meanwhile, Realme is expected to launch the Realme Book (Slim) in India on August 18. The laptop will be a lightweight one and come with a metal chassis. It is expected to support 65W fast charging, USB Type-C and Type-A ports, and more. It will launch alongside the Realme GT and the GT Master Edition smartphones.
