Leaked image reveals what is pretty much a MacBook Pro with the Xiaomi logo slapped on top. The first Xiaomi notebooks are expected to be announced within the coming months.

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.

Other than a brand new line of laptops, Xiaomi will also be refreshing the Mi 5 as the Mi 5s this Fall alongside a smartwatch and successor to the Mi Note.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
