Mi Notebook Pro Specifications and Features Announced

Starting with the build, you get an all metal body on the Xiaomi Mi Notebook Pro. Any 15-inch "pro" laptop deserves a higher-res screen (even if it's something less than 4K), and you're going to notice the lack of pixels on a 1080p display that big. In addition, Xiaomi Mi Notebook Pro has an improved keyboard, a Harman Infinity custom speakers and Dolby certification. The mid-range option drops the RAM to 8GB, while the entry-level Mi Notebook Pro also drops the processor down to a Core i5 8250U.

The graphics on the laptop is managed by Nvidia GeForce MX150. Xiaomi is also releasing a premium Ceramic edition of the smartphone with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. You can also upgrade the notebook to tout up to 16GB of DDR4 2,400MHz RAM and a 256GB PCIe SSD will be included in the mix. The new Xiaomi Mi Notebook Pro laptop is available in one color variants, and that is the dark gray color which offers a sophisticated as well as decent design.

We called the Notebook Pro laptop from Xiaomi "the gen-next laptop" for a reason. Mi Notebook Pro packs a 60 Wh battery for long battery life and comes with quick charge support.
