Xiaomi is hosting an event in China tomorrow where all eyes will be on the launch of the Redmi Pro. But that isn’t the only device that will grace the stage, and Xiaomi is also expected take the wraps off the much-rumored Mi Notebook. With less than a day to the launch, a massive leak has revealed alleged real-life photos, specifications and pricing of the upcoming laptop.

The photos shared by Gizmochina show one side of the Mi Notebook as well as a close-up of the keyboard. The photos show a laptop with a thin metallic body, and on the right side is a standard USB port as well as a USB Type-C port. Though seen from the sides, you can just about make out the thin bezels surrounding the display. Unfortunately, the keyboard is not backlit like the Apple MacBook.

The publication also seems to have got its hands on some presentation slides that reveal the specifications, features and pricing of the upcoming Mi Notebook. These slides hint at two variants of the Mi Notebook — a 12.5-inch priced at 3,999 Yuan (Rs 40,300 approximately), and a 15.6-inch variant priced at 6,699 Yuan (Rs 67,500 approximately).
Xiaomi Mi Notebook specifications
The 12.5-inch variant is expected to feature an Intel i5 processor along with 8GB DDR4 RAM, and 256GB SSD. The 15.6-inch Pro variant, on the other hand, will feature an Intel Core i7 processor along with 16GB DDR4 RAM and 512GB SSD.
It is difficult to say just how authentic these specifications, features and price are, but only have to wait for less than a day to find out more. Another report claims that the repeated delays have had an effect on the number Mi Notebooks that will be shipped this year. Analysts believe Xiaomi’s partners will only be able to ship around 300,000 units, down from the earlier estimates of 1 million.
Besides the Mi Notebook, the highlight of tomorrow’s event is going to be the launch of the Redmi Pro. Based on what we have come across so far, the Redmi Pro’s highlight will be dual-camera setup at the back. It will also feature an OLED display, MediaTek s Helio X25 deca-core processor, a fingerprint scanner embedded into the home button up front, and connectivity options like 4G with VoLTE support. It is expected to be available in two variants with 3GB and 4GB RAM.
