Though the rumour is unconfirmed so far, the new notebook, touted as the Mi Notebook Pro is expected to come with a larger 15.6-inch display. As per the report, the notebook recently received a 3C certification from authorities, which is intended for chargers. The certification shows that the charging adapter is a 20 V/2.25 A or 20 V/3.25 A unit with a maximum output capability of 45 W or 65 W respectively.

Though this may not have any major pointers towards the notebook's internals, it does suggest that the device will not be a gaming-oriented device which would require a larger wattage at around 80 W. The certification also states that the notebook houses support for 4G connectivity.

Details revealed in the report state that the Mi Notebook Pro will be powered by an 8th gen Intel Core i7 8550U and i5 8250U processor along with 16 GB of RAM and 256 GB of internal storage. The notebook is said to come with a 1080p full-HD panel and run Windows 10, with support for fingerprint recognition.

Xiaomi is also expected to launch a second smartphone at the event, likely the Mi Note 3.The Mi Note 3 is expected to essentially be a larger Mi 6, with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 and 6 GB of RAM. However, there has been no confirmation from the company's end yet, whether any of the devices will be brought to India.
