Xiaomi unveils their first ever gaming laptop and it packs quite a punch with its features.

Chinese consumer electronic giant Xiaomi just announced their first foray into the gaming world by launching the Mi Gaming Laptop. It debuted alongside the Mi MIX 2S earlier this week.

Touted to be a gaming notebook that’s portable, the Mi Gaming Laptop is only 20.9mm thick. But don’t let the skinny build fool you as it is actually a good contender among other premium gaming laptops.

So what exactly are the specs?

It has 15.6-inch full HD screen and a dedicated Nvidia GTX 1060 graphics card with a 6GB GDDR5 RAM. The screen supports 178-degree of viewing angles and has a professional RGB-backlit keyboard with five-programmable keys.

The machine runs on a 7th-generation Intel Core 7 processor, a 16GB DDR4 RAM, a 256GB solid-state drive, and 1TB of hard disk storage.

There isn’t a shortage of connectivity ports either. It comes with USB 3.0 ports, a USB Type-C port, HDMI 2.0, Ethernet, and microphone and headphone jacks. The top-end variant is priced at CNY 8,999 or about $1430.

If you think the price is too much and you’d be happy with a less-powerful-but-still-good gaming laptop, Xiaomi has got you covered.

They announced a second variant that comes with Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050Ti with 4GB GDDR5 RAM and a 128GB SSD. It runs on an Intel Core i5 processor and has 1TB hard disk storage. This low-end variant comes with a CNY 5,999 or $955 price tag.

Both laptops will go on sale next month. Unfortunately, there is no word yet as to whether they will be available outside the China market. We will just have to wait and see!
