Upcoming Xiaomi notebook could look a lot like the MacBook Pro
While we've known about the Xiaomi notebook for quite some time now, it wasn't until now that we've seen any leaked images on a full production or pre-production unit. Previous leaks only showed an incomplete chassis that appeared generic and largely unrepresentative of the final form.
The leaked image shows a silver sheen notebook with edges and corners not unlike a traditional MacBook Pro. Xiaomi CEO Lei Jun responded to the leaks by saying that the company is not yet ready to discuss about the notebook. Though this doesn't confirm nor deny the picture, Jun is strongly hinting that a notebook is in the works.
Existing rumors are claiming that Xiaomi will unveil a family of notebooks in the 12.5-inch, 13.3-inch, and 15.6-inch ranges for a launch this September. Specifications are expected to be mainstream to high-end with a focus on younger tech-savvy consumers instead of business users. This is in contrast to the Huawei Matebook convertible, which targets the business sector.
