Earlier this month, Xiaomi launched the Mi Notebook Pro 2 laptop alongside its gaming laptop at ChinaJoy 2018. Designed for working professionals, the laptop carries some high-end hardware that comes wrapped in a premium design. Now, the company seems to be adding to the series another 15.6-inch laptop that is planned to launch in the next few days.

According to a promo poster cited by Gizchina, Xiaomi is planning to launch a new laptop on August 23 in China. The poster doesn’t reveal much other than the date, and the fact that the laptop will be carrying a 15.6-inch screen. However, the image showcased in the poster reveals the laptop will come with a full featured keyboard with a numeric pad, along with a SD card slot, a USB port, and a 3.5mm headphone jack on the right side.

We’re not sure whether the new Notebook is meant to be a high-end variant of the Notebook Pro 2 or just a budget variant, but there is no doubt that customers can expect premium features on the same lines. Some of features touted include an 8th-gen Intel Core processor, and a full HD screen with thin bezels.

The design though is said to be on same lines as the Notebook Pro 2, which is sleek and slender. Besides the ones seen here, the laptop can also be expected to come with a handful number of ports including USB Type-C, and an HDMI.

To give you an idea, the high-end variant of the Notebook Pro 2 comes powered with an latest Intel Core i7-8750H processor tagged alongside 16GB of RAM, and Nvidia GTX 1060 graphics solutions. For storage, it packs in 1TB of hard drive, and 256GB of SSD. It’s priced at RMB 8,999, which is approximately Rs 90,000. Xiaomi focuses on offering the best of work and play with all its notebooks, which we believe can be expected with the new laptop as well. However, we’ll just have to wait till August 23 to get more details on it.
