With Realme preparing to launch its first laptop in the coming weeks, it was critical that Xiaomi responds with a counter-launch. It appears that the company’s RedmiBook debut was insufficient, and it now plans to release an upgraded Mi Notebook laptop in India. There are no names or pricing yet, but Xiaomi’s senior executives have taken to Twitter to tease the upcoming Mi Notebook model with a sneak peek at the design and some specifications.
This Mi Notebook laptop teased in the video looks to be the successor to last year’s Mi Notebook 14 Horizon Edition. One of the teasers exposes the display’s aspect ratio, which appears to be 16:10. The silhouette ultimately gives way to the rendered design, which features tight bezels all around but the camera in the proper location. This time, the chin is adorned with the new “Xiaomi” logo.
Xiaomi Mi Notebook – What we know so far?
The deck will be coated in the same silver paint as previous Mi Notebook models, and a tiny keyboard will be visible. A follow-up tweet from the CEO suggests a steel body, but it seems odd given how prevalent aluminum alloy is for premium Windows laptops.
If you haven't got this yet , this is the aspect ratio which
1. Is close to the Golden ratio
2. Gives you the best of both worlds – Productivity & Entertainment
3. Offers 5% more vertical space than most laptops with 16:9 displays https://t.co/D1awhjwM4m

The inclusion of a Thunderbolt 4 connection on the latest Mi Notebook model has been verified in another tweet. Both Xiaomi and Realme look to be focusing on Thunderbolt 4 in their forthcoming laptops.
Xiaomi appears to be targeting the higher pricing categories with the Mi Notebook series this year, with the RedmiBook line of laptops catering to the sub-Rs 50,000 markets. Realme is rumored to be positioning its Realme Book Slim laptop in the sub-Rs 70,000 pricing range, while Xiaomi is also rumored to be pushing a device in that price range.
Redmibook 15 Pro – Complete Details
Xiaomi is expected to reveal additional details about the new Mi Notebook computers in the coming weeks, although their characteristics are already known. The Mi Notebook models might have 11th Gen Intel CPUs, similar to the RedmiBook variants, with the most high-end model perhaps obtaining the Core i7 chip. Xiaomi may also use NVIDIA GPUs in its Mi Notebook models for better graphics performance than the RedmiBook 15 Pro’s Iris Xe graphics solution.
