Xiaomi has had a tremendous 2014, save for a few hiccups that the end. The company finally stepped out of China and is already a big name in the new markets it ventured in. It also launched its first ever tablet, the Mi Pad this year which still happens to be one of the best budget slates around.
It appears as though the success of this tablet has encouraged Xiaomi to make its very own laptop. There are talks of another Xiaomi phone for next month, which will most probably be a Redmi Note successor (or another flagship?), and a possible Xiaomi Mi 5 for later next year. Anyway, to cut to the chase, here’s some pictures of the purported leaked device for you to look at and draw your conclusion:
According to the source, the laptop will have a 15-inch 1920 x 1080p display along with an Intel i7 chip and a massive 16GB RAM. It is tipped to be priced only at 2,999 CNY or US$480, which sounds like quite a bargain — like every other Xiaomi product.
As was the case with the Mi Pad, leaks started well in advance to the actual launch, which could be the case here also. If you were to ask me, I wouldn’t really bet my money on a Xiaomi laptop for the next 6 months at least, but then you never know.
