Leaks Suggest Xiaomi May Soon Enter the Desktop PC Market

By Zernab Farooqi - Dec 6, 2022

Xiaomi is expanding beyond only smartphones and AIoT products to a variety of new industries. Their mobile phone division has been doing quite well recently. In addition to entering the electric car industry, the business plans to develop its first AI-powered vehicle. This firm is now making preparations to enter the desktop PC market. It has previously launched many high-quality Windows laptops.

Xiaomi Event was postponed

According to reports, the two distinct designs were going to be shown off during the event that Xiaomi was holding on December 1. The ceremony will not take place as planned because to the death of Jiang Zemin, who served as the former general secretary of the Chinese Communist Party. While we wait for a new date to be established, it would seem that two different PC designs were showed off to a small group of people a little bit early.
Leaks Suggest Xiaomi May Soon Enter the Desktop PC Market

First Option is Xiaomi Host Mini PC

Alright, then, let's get started with the former matter first. A simplified model of the Xiaomi Host Mini PC has been shown, and it gives the impression of being a device that is suitable for SFF use. To put it more simply, the power supply unit (PSU) that is being shown here is a single 100W XM22AL5X model. Since it is unlikely that Xiaomi would promote it as a full set, we do not yet know what additional accessories will be included in the box when it is released.

Second Option is a Compact Computer Comparable to Mac Mini

So, let's move on to the other system, which we have a much better understanding of. It's a compact computer that takes a lot of ideas from the Apple Mac Mini and the Intel NUC. It is anticipated that the primary components of the device will consist of a 45W MD Ryzen 7 6800H APU, a Radeon 680M RDNA2 GPU, 16GB of RAM, and a 512GB SSD. The rumor going around is that it will cost you back CNY 3999, which is around $570.
