Beijing based Xiaomi look to be readying a Xiaomi laptop after purported packaging photos appear online.
Over a month ago we reported that Xiaomi were rumoured to be working on their own range of affordable laptop computers. Reports from Chinese media sources claimed that the Xiaomi laptop would cost just 3999 Yuan ($650) and be equipped with a Haswell i7 processor with Nvidia GTX 660M graphics, 4GB RAM and a 63GB SSD hard drive.
Today pictures of what could be the packaging of the Xiaomi Laptop appear online. The box looks a lot like the recycled cardboard designs which Xiaomi phones come in, and features the Xiaomi logo along with an Intel sticker.
The authenticity of the photo is to be questioned however as it appears next to what souces are claiming to be a render of the laptop. We know for a fact this is false as the ‘render’ was actually created here at Gizchina for the original article!
Still the idea of a Xiaomi laptop does sound very appealing and leaves a lot of questions unanswered, the major one being “what OS will a Xiaomi laptop run?”
