Xiaomi launched the Mi Notebook Air in China in July this year and it seems that the company is already planning an update for its first ever notebook. According to a report by GizmoChina, an updated variant of the Mi Notebook Air will be announced on 23rd December at an event in Beijing, China.
The invite image teases a product with similar design to the original Mi Notebook Air, but the new model could feature 4G connectivity out of the box. However, it is unclear if this will be the only upgrade or we will see some hardware upgrades as well.
