Dear Xiaomi, Come to Nigeria Already! Have You Seen Xiaomi’s New Laptop & Smartphones? (Update)

Xiaomi has unveiled its latest ultrabook.  It is called the Xiaomi Mi Notebook Pro

Xiaomi is (once again) coming for Apple with this one, and you can tell by the way the notebook is designed.


Specs-wise, you are getting a 15.6-inch display, Intel’s latest quad-core i7 processor, up to 16GB of RAM, up to 1TB of SSD storage, and Nvidia’s GeForce MX150 graphics, you’d also get a fingerprint sensor built into a precision trackpad.

Compared to the MacBook Pro, the new Mi Notebook Pro has more ports. You get two USB-C ports, two full sizes USB-A ports (USB 3.0), an HDMI, SD card slot and a headphone jack. Of course, the advantage of the MacBook Pro is that all the USB-C based ports are Thunderbolt 3 enabled something which the Mi Notebook Pro does not offer.


How much?

It’s a bit pricey, the core i5/ 8GB RAM variant is priced at $859 while the other two variants — Core i7 with 8GB and 16GB of RAM— are priced at $980 and $1,099 respectively.

So, back to the issue of the Macbook look-alike.

Yes, it might look like the MacBook, but someone should tell Xiaomi that It’s not what you have on the outside that counts, but what you have on the inside — in this case, the MacOS. So, for this reason:

But the Mi Mix 2 is something that has got me interested!

It is the second bezel-less Mi Mix smartphone and it is equally as gorgeous as the first. The Mi Mix 2 has a 5.99-inch, 18:9 screen, with a hidden speaker on top. And it is also 11.9% smaller than the Mi Mix

The phone is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor and 6GB of RAM as well as 64/128/256 GB of storage paired with a 3400mAh battery. And if that’s not enough, you can get the Mi Mix 2 Special Edition, which has a ceramic body and has an insane 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. As for the camera specs, you only get a single, 12-megapixel camera along with a  5MP front camera. All for $500!


They’ve also launched the Mi Note 3 which is a little smaller than the predecessor — 5.5-inches — with a Snapdragon 660 processor, 3,500 mAh battery and 6GB RAM. You have a 16-megapixel selfie camera and 12-megapixel dual-lens arrangement for the rear-side camera, including 2X optic zoom, portrait mode and four-axis optical image stabilizer (OIS). This would cost you about $383.
