Xiaomi, known for its smartphones had stepped into notebook and laptop market in 2016 by launching the Mi Notebook Air. The details for the updated model of Xiaomi's Mi Notebook Air are revealed.
As per GSMArena, the company is working on a second generation Mi Notebook Air and it is expected to be launched later this year. The production of the notebook is going to begin this year in April. The new notebook will feature an ultralight magnesium-lithium chassis and this will make the notebook much lighter. The chassis will be exclusively produced by TaiSol Electronics and ShinSho. The magnesium-lithium body will be lighter but at the same time, it will be expensive as compared to the conventional aluminum chassis.
The specifications for the new notebook have not been announced but it will be more powerful and power efficient compared to its predecessor. The alleged specs of the new notebook will include a 13.3-inch full HD display, a Kaby Lake Core i5 processor, 8GB RAM and a 512GB SSD for fast operations. Apart from that, Mi Notebook Air is expected to feature USB 3.1 ports, Bluetooth 4.1 and USB Type-C port for charging.
The original Mi Notebook Air gathered good reviews around the internet and provided stiff competition to big brands like HP, Dell and Apple. The original notebook also featured a metal shell and glass covered bezels enhancing the overall look, feel and finish of the notebook, as reported by UberGizmo. The upcoming notebook is expected to continue the legacy and will come up as a major player in the market for ultralight laptops.
The upcoming Mi Notebook Air is expected to be priced more than its predecessor because of the Magnesium-Lithium chassis and a better build quality.
