Xiaomi has teased away its new Mi Notebook Air launch for tomorrow. The Chinese company will be unveiling the notebook in its home country on March 26. On its official Weibo handle, Xiaomi teased the weight of its upcoming Mi Notebook Air as 1.07 kg, which turns out to be lighter than the MacBook Air.

Xiaomi launched the original Mi Notebook Air three years back in 2016. The portable computing machine directly rivaled MacBook Air highlighting its thinness and lightweight with design similarities as the Apple notebooks. Now it appears, Xiaomi has developed even lighter notebook than Apple MacBook Air’s weighing 1.25 kg, and Huawei MateBook 12’s 1.3 kg weight in comparison, first reported by Mydrivers (via Gizmochina).

In China, Xiaomi sells different sized Mi NoteBooks via its official Mi Store. At present, the 2018 variant of 15.6-inch Mi Notebook retails at RMB 3,399 (approximately Rs 34,000) starting price. There are other variants featuring Intel i3/i5/i7 chipsets, also the smaller display size of 13.3-inch notebooks.
