Its July 27 press conference in Beijing, Xiaomi will reportedly launch two new products. While one of them is said to be a phone – probably the Redmi Note 4 – the other is said to be a laptop – the company’s first. Rumours that the company would launch the fourth-generation Redmi Note budget phablet on July 27 have been doing the rounds for quite some time now. Xiaomi was also expected to launch the Mi Note 2 at the scheduled event. Now, a third device has come into the light.
Note that the company is likely to launch just two products on the said date. So, it’s either going to be the Redmi Note 4 and the Xiaomi laptop – Mi Notebook – or the Redmi Note 4 and the Mi Note 2. Although, chances of the laptop coming up seem more, as the confirmation (sort of) comes directly from Xiaomi’s director of new media via his Weibo account.
Xiaomi’s first-ever laptop will reportedly come with Intel Atom processor and built out of aluminum. The laptop will further reportedly look like Apple’s MacBook, only that it would be considerably cheaper. Xiaomi’s laptop will reportedly be offered in two screen sizes: 12.5 and 13.3-inch.
As for the new Xiaomi phone, a new teaser image doing the rounds on the internet recently showed off a model holding the alleged Redmi Note 4 in his hand. The teaser showed off the rear panel of the phone in question, highlighting the phone’s alleged dual-camera setup with a flash seated in the middle. The twin-camera setup is said to be the spotlight in the case of the Redmi Note 4.
There have also been several rumours that the Redmi Note 4 would be an oversized phablet, suggesting its screen size could be more than the usual 5.5-inch.
