A less powerful notebook than originally rumored may be announced next week at a press event in China.

According to an online source from China, Xiaomi is set to introduce its first laptop during a press conference set to take place next week. This same event could also be hosting the reveal of the rumored Redmi Note 4, Note 2 Pro, Mi 5s, or an unknown smartwatch. In other words, nobody is exactly sure what Xiaomi will be unveiling, but sources say a September launch date is likely for whatever this new product may be.

What's even more puzzling is that this rumored notebook will supposedly be running on an Intel Atom processor. If true, this would go against recent statements made by Xiaomi CEO Hugo Barra where he promised that his company would be offering fewer budget and mainstream products in the future in favor of higher-end devices. Nonetheless, it's possible that the manufacturer will unveil an entire range of Windows 10 notebooks where the lower-end SKU will simply have Atom options. Previous rumors hinted at high-end models in 12.5-inch, 13.3-inch, and 15.6-inch sizes to compete with the MacBook Pro series.

One thing for certain is that Xiaomi will indeed host a press conference on July 27th at the Beijing National Convention Center as announced through Weibo by Xiaomi's own department responsible for the Redmi series. Thus, the plausibility of a new Redmi smartphone is much higher than a new lineup of notebooks for now.

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.
