Xiaomi is not a brand that pops up in one’s head when it comes to gaming laptops. Nonetheless, the Chinese tech giant does have a gaming laptop under their belt. However, as it was only launched in the Chinese market, and thus went relatively unnoticed elsewhere. But now Xiaomi has come up with its successor. Aptly named the Xiaomi Mi Gaming Laptop 2019, the device packs an impressive array of specs. The starting price of the device is roughly $1080 and expectation is that this device will generate a lot more buzz than its predecessor.
Talking about the design, the device pretty much looks similar to its predecessor. The device has a 15.6” display and an 81% screen-to-body ratio. To back it up, there’s a 144 Hz screen that provides smooth game-play. The device is powered by the 9th gen Intel Core i7 processor. Furthermore, the device will have 16 GB RAM and a 512 GB SSD. A total of three variants of the device has been revealed, among which the top model packs an RTX 2060 while others rest at GTX 1660 Ti.
As for connectivity, all the variants have dual-band Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 5.0. They come with two 3-Watt speakers with Dolby Audio and a 1 MP HD webcam. Also, it packs enough ports for everything concerned.
Aesthetically, the keyboard is a four-zone LED-backlit keyboard with three different modes with a glass surface touch-pad. There’s a 55 Whr battery which is not very big, but should give you about 3.5 hours of backup.

The specs on this device look cool. Well, on paper at least. How it actually performs can only be judged when put to test. So, whether it actually is a game-changer that can usurp the established brands remains to be seen. Maybe it will disappear under the radar like its predecessor. Maybe not. Who knows right? We’ll have to wait and see how it all pans out for the Mi Gaming laptop 2019.
