Chinese online retailer JD.com has the Xiaomi Book Air 13 available for reservation with its major specifications, after yesterday's announcement that Xiaomi will debut a new Windows ultrabook at its Redmi Note 12 series launch event on October 27.
According to the specifications sheet, the laptop will have a 13.3-inch OLED touchscreen display with a resolution of 2880 x 1800 pixels and a 16:10 aspect ratio. The display has a camera with an unspecified resolution and can refresh at 60 Hz. The Xiaomi Book Air 13 is available with your choice of a 12th generation Intel U-series Core i5 or Core i7 processor, 16GB of LPDDR5 memory, and up to 512GB of storage.
The thinness and light weight of the laptop (just 12mm and 1.2kg, respectively) are its most striking features. There is no indication of whether or not the keyboard will be backlit, but the item indicates that it is a full size. In addition to the two Thunderbolt connections, other features include Wi-Fi 6E and Bluetooth 5.2 connectivity.
It seems like the fingerprint reader on the right side of the laptop will be included as well. A 65W type-C power adapter is included along with the 58.3Wh battery's capacity. Since we now know everything there is to know about the Xiaomi Book Air 13, all we have to do is wait until Thursday's big event for pricing and availability details.
