Xiaomi has its hands in many consumer related products. Though it is most known for the smartphones it sells, other devices such as tablets, laptops, Wi-Fi routers, power banks and more.
As it so happens the policy of Xiaomi for providing the best hardware for very affordable prices goes across all its products. We have seen that especially in the mobile segment of the device and more recently also saw it in the tablet segment.
New Entrant Into The Gaming Industry
One thing that Xiaomi hasn’t capitalised on fully and which is also becoming one of the most dominant parts of the tech world, is gaming. The Chinese giant hasn’t produced any kind of worthy gaming laptops or phones. Granted the phone gaming sector is very small, but the PC gaming sector has been blowing up quite massively in the recent months.
Looks like Xiaomi has done something about it. At the recent unveiling of the Mi Mix 2S, the entire world was for in a surprise as Xiaomi unveiled two more products alongside its flagship phone. The first was a mini version of its AI smart-speaker and the second was Xiaomi’s own Mi Gaming Laptop.
This brand new Mi Gaming Laptop has currently only been announced for the Chinese market. As we said before Xiaomi has given the device at a very budget-friendly price tag with the starting price at CNY 5,999 (approximately Rs 60,000) and the selling date from 13 April. Considering it is gaming laptop the price is very competitive and when we look at the specs we understand why.
The laptop packs in a 15.6-inch FHD display and is surrounded by ultra-thin bezels. But the craziest part is when we look at what is under-the-hood. The Mi Gaming Laptop is powered by an Intel i7 processor and has two variants where one has a 6 GB Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 GPU along with 16 GB RAM, 256 GB SSD, and a massive 1 TB of HDD storage while the second one is slightly less powerful with 4 GB Nvidia’s GTX 1050Ti GPU along with 8GB of RAM, 128GB SSD and 1TB HDD.
This is something that many of the high-level gaming laptops fail to offer and charge nearly double the amount. As a matter of fact, Alienware’s 17 series of laptops happen to be nearly thrice the price of the Mi Gaming Laptops to the variant. The Mi Gaming Laptop gives the user a professional gaming keyboard which reportedly has 30 n-key rollovers and also RGB lighting. This is also something found only in Rs 1.5 lakh or above laptops.
On top of that, the laptop also provides Hi-Res certified audio and Dolby Sound. This is a really great package, but unfortunately, there has been no reveal date for the Indian market. We will have to wait and see when it comes here.
