The Mi Notebook Pro features two USB-C ports, two USB ports, a 3-in-1 card reader, and an HDMI port. For graphics, the laptop features NVIDIA GeForce MX150 GPU.

In Xiaomi say that the keyboard of the new laptop is 19% more area compared to the MacBook Pro.

Powering the Mi Notebook Pro are Intel Kaby Lake processors, with customers able to choose from up to a Core i7-8550U or a Core i7-8650U paired with up to 16GB of RAM and up to a 256GB SSD.

The only color variant available now of the Mi Notebook Pro is Black.

Let us begin with the display - the Xiaomi Notebook Pro comes out into the markets with a 15.6 inched display, which is protected with a Gorilla Glass 3.

Powered by the Windows 10 operating system. There is also a fingerprint scanner on the top right corner of the trackpad, making it also compatible with Windows Hello. Like Apple's own design aesthetic, the upcoming laptop features a thin industrial bezel and an overall sleek form factor. Xiaomi wasted no time highlighting that this selection offers far more options than the latest in Apple's own Macbook Pro series.

Xiaomi is set to launch the Mi Notebook Pro starting at ¥6399 CNY or $1189.47 CAD.

The company has introduced this new generation laptops via their official Twitter handle with a few images of this stunning Mi Notebook Pro laptop. The only letdown here is the 1080p display resolution and 72-percent NTSC gamut, neither of which sound very "pro". Apart from that, the Mi Notebook Pro comes 2,400MHz dual channel RAM. It comes with a backlit keyboard with 1.5 mm key travel.

The Core i7 processor and 16GB RAM variant will feature a pricing of 6999 Chinese Yuan ($1074 or Rs. 68,630 approx). A Core i7/16GB RAM configuration will set you back the rough equivalent of $1,075 (6999 yuan), but it's probably wise not to expect USA availability anytime soon.

As noted earlier, there is no guarantee that Xiaomi will launch the Mi Notebook in India, although if it does chances are that it may find a number of takers. The device will, like its predecessor, be available only in China and will start going on Sale on September 15.
