Chinese manufacturer Xiaomi presented its flagship notebook in China. The Xiaomi Mi Notebook Pro X features an OLED 15-inch display and Intel’s 11th generation core SoCs.
The device visually corresponds with other high-end notebooks made by Xiaomi and other manufacturers. It has a slim display bezel and a housing entirely made of aluminum. The power button houses a fingerprint reader and a trackpad.
This display is unique. The display is 15.6 inches in size with 3456×2160 Pixels. It works at a 60 Hertz refresh rate and is maintained in 16:10 format. OLED technology means that the screen will have high contrast and full coverage of both the DCI-P3 and sRGB color spaces. The maximum brightness is 600 candela. This is an excellent value for a notebook.
New Intel 35W CPUs
The latest Intel technology is under the hood. This is because the Intel ” Tiger Lake”, quad-core SoCs have a maximum power loss up to 35 Watts. The Intel Core i5-11300H has a maximum 4.4GHz boost clock and the Intel Core i7-11370H has a maximum 4.8 gigahertz boost speed. Both the Xiaomi have an Nvidia RTX3050Ti with four gigabytes each of their own GDDR6 memory pairs.
Xiaomi keeps the number of configurations ex-works low to maintain costs, as is their usual. The i5 model has 16 gigabytes RAM and a PCIe NVMe SSD of 512 GB. The i7 model has 32 gigabytes RAM and a 1TB SSD.
The Xiaomi Mi Notebook Pro X features a USB Type C port, a Thunderbolt4 port and two USB-A ports. It also has an HDMI 2.1 output and a 3.5 mm jack to play audio. Radio can be transmitted via Bluetooth 5.2 and WiFi 6. Harman-Kardon speakers also support DTS audio. The battery has 80-watt hours of runtime and is quite large, even though you shouldn’t expect any runtime miracles with the 35 watt CPUs.
In China, Xiaomi will initially launch the new Mi notebook Pro X. The starting price for the i5 model in China is 7,999 Yuan. 9999 yuan is the price for the Core i7 SoC version. This converts to approximately 1050, or 1300 euros. However, availability in Europe of the laptop is still unknown.
