The next-generation Mi Notebook is expected to be the first laptop with a backlit keyboard. The new keyboard will allow for easier typing in low-light conditions and will also serve as a power button.
The backlit keyboard is no longer a rumor for the next-gen Mi Notebook. Xiaomi has confirmed that they will be releasing one with their upcoming device.
Redmi, Xiaomi’s Indian subsidiary, has introduced a new notebook series in India, the 15-inch Redmi book. However, unlike their Mi counterparts, they do not have the much-anticipated illuminated keyboard. Despite this, Raghu Reddy, Xiaomi India’s CBO, just tweeted a picture of a notebook with a backlit keyboard, indicating that they are on the way.

People are guessing as Xiaomi keeps the information under wraps. The image in Raghu’s tweet is generally assumed to be the Next-Gen Mi Notebook; conjecture indicates it is the same Next-Gen notebook that was just launched in China. On July 9th, the Mi Notebook Pro X 15 was released in China.
If it’s the same model, we may anticipate a 15.6-inch Samsung OLED display with a resolution of 3456x2160p.
The Samsung OLED display is a fantastic feature that would help the Next-Gen Mi laptop since it offers greater brightness levels, enhanced contrast, and color accuracy while still conserving battery.
OLED panels (Organic Light-Emitting Diode displays) do not need a backlight, making them simpler and easier to manufacture, as well as more efficient in terms of electricity, illumination, and battery life. They are also smaller and more practical.
It will also feature 16GB of RAM, 512GB of SSD storage, and be driven by an Intel Core i5-11300H CPU. That’s not even taking into account the full-size illuminated keyboard that everyone has been anticipating.
Even if the model sold in India is the same as the model launched in China, we may anticipate the product’s name to be changed as part of their strategic marketing strategy. Any business that offers technology to several nations follows this common procedure.
But, given that this is only conjecture, what can we anticipate if it isn’t the same model?
We have a few suggestions.
First, there’s the display. It may feature a 14-inch display instead of the 15.6-inch display seen in the model sold in China.
We anticipate the display to be poised to challenge their 1440p high-resolution display with a 1440p display of their own, based on the RealmeBook’s recent announcement.
Second, there’s the appearance. We can anticipate the Mi Notebook to have a metal body and a brilliant display based on the tweeted pictures alone. It will, without a doubt, feature the much-desired illuminated keyboard.
Finally, there are the high-tech components. With the majority of the competition already sporting an 11th Gen Intel core, the Next-Gen Mi Notebook is anticipated to follow suit and have at least an 11th Gen Intel core CPU, 256GB of internal storage, and 8GB of RAM.
The Next-Gen Mi Notebook is expected to feature at least a 10-hour battery life, as well as charging capabilities, similar to their prior models. Mi Notebooks are renowned for charging the first half of their batteries in 25 minutes, which is a characteristic that is expected to stick around.
The Next-Gen Mi Notebook is expected to have a Thunderbolt 4.0 connector. These ports, which were just recently introduced in 2020, are claimed to function at a speed of 40 gigabits per second. Other significant updates, such as Wifi 6, which doubles your channel bandwidth and offers overall improved performance in internet crowded locations, such as a town center or a football stadium, are also expected.
The Mi Notebook would benefit from a USB-C connection for external display connectivity. With 11th Gen capabilities, we know it can handle it, thus including it would elevate the Mi Notebook over its predecessor.
Despite this, we don’t have any definitive information on what the Next Generation Mi Notebook will offer us. When asked when this exciting new device would be available, Raghu Reddy simply responded “soon,” implying that we won’t have to wait long to learn more about the Mi Notebook.
