Xiaomi’s officially unveiled the Mi Notebook Air 4G in collaboration with China Mobile, blessing the laptop with a couple of improvements over its predecessor. As can be guessed by its name, one its top attractions is its in-built LTE support.
The Mi Notebook Air 4G will be sold in two variants measuring 12.5-inch and 13.3-inch. The two are priced at CNY 4699 (roughly Rs 46500) and CNY 6999 (approx Rs 69500), respectively. Both have been launched bundled with a free China Mobile offer which serves up 4GB of data on a monthly basis for a total of 48GB a year.
The LTE-ready Mi Notebook Air is pretty similar to the older model which came out earlier this year. Other than the added connectivity option, another factor which sets it apart from its predecessor is the 13.3-inch version’s sixth-generation Intel Core i7 processor compared to the non-4G iteration’s Intel i5 CPU.
Here’s a neat summary of the top specs of the Xiaomi Mi Notebook Air 4G:
