New Xiaomi Mi NoteBook Air surfaces: Kaby Lake, upgraded graphics, fingerprint scanner

Xiaomi forayed into the notebook market back in July last year, with the Mi NoteBook Air. It was equipped with Intel's Skylake processor, and was offered in 13.3-inch (Core i3) and 12.5-inch (Core m3) models. Later that year, a 4G version was released with upgraded processors. Now it appears that the 13.3-inch model is getting another upgrade.

The new upgraded 13-inch Mi NoteBook Air will feature Intel's latest Kaby Lake processor. It will have Intel's 7th-gen 3.1GHz Core i5-7200U chip, and the graphics have also received an update from GTX 940MX to NVIDIA GeFore MX150 (pascal architecture). It will also get a fingerprint reader, embedded in the top-right corner of the trackpad.

Most of the other specs are same as the predecessor. It still has Full HD IPS display, 8GB RAM and 128GB/256GB SSD. Other specs include HD webcam, 2 x USB 3.0 ports, USB Type-C charging port, HDMI port, 3.5mm audio jack, Bluetooth 4.0, WiFi and fast charging support.

The new 13.3-inch Mi Note Air is expected to be available for pre-order starting June 12, and will carry a price tag of CNY 4999 ($735) for the 128GB storage model, and CNY 5499 ($805) for the 256GB storage model.
