Xiaomi launched the Mi Notebook Air in July last year and new leaks suggest that the company is all set to update the machine with 7th gen Intel processors this year. The device was leaked with press renders and full specifications ahead of it is supposed launch in China today. The new laptop seems to carry forward the same design as its predecessor and is tipped to weigh 1.3kgs. It is reported that the laptop will now feature a fingerprint scanner on the touchpad itself, similar to the setup used by the Asus Zenbook 3.

The new Mi Notebook will reportedly feature a new 7th gen Intel Core i5-7200U processor with a base clock speed of 2.5GHz and a max clock speed of 3.1GHz. The leaks also suggest that the notebook will get 8GB of RAM and could be available in 128GB and 256GB storage options. The NVIDIA GeForce 940MX is also said to be replaced in favour of a newer GeForce MX150 card. The new MX150 is a new Pascal based laptop-class GPU and can offer three times better performance-per-watt than the 940MX.
