The notebook will be de-developed by Inventec, a well-known company and is said to have a retail price of 470 US$. Apparently the company is said to be partnering with two producers that are Inventec and Foxconn. This size was chosen because of various reasons one being that it is currently the most used in China and hence due to its popularity is considered to be the most appropriate one. Because of this development, the company will be opening a new battle with some of the giants such as Apple, Lenovo, LG among others.
Since Xiaomi was founded, they have been well-known for producing smartphones even though it also produces other electronics. Xiaomi is a big company with over 1.1 billion worth of investments alone.

The company has apparently had talks with Samsung to provide them with memory chips. Inventec and Compal are supposed to produce the given laptops in certain orders all carrying the label of Xiaomi. Xiaomi currently has 200million users so for them to take such a step is not over-ambitious. This will only increase their popularity, and it seems that next year, the company has a lot of storage for its users.
