Just ahead of the holidays and CES 2017, Xiaomi held a small launch event for a new product today. At the event, the Chinese giant today introduced a new 4G variant of its Notebook Air device. The company initially launched the Mi Notebook Air back on July 27. The company is now teaming up with China Mobile to introduce the new 4G variant.

The 4G variant of the device comes with free 4GB of 4G data every month from China Mobile, which is a pretty neat deal. Similar to the original Mi Notebook Air, the 4G variant of the device has two different models: a 13.3-inch variant and a 12.5-inch variant.

  • NVIDIA GeForce 940MX dedicated graphics card
  • Intel Core i7 processor, runs Windows 10 Home
  • 8GB DDR4 RAM + 256GB PCIe SSD, expandable SSD slot
  • 9.5-hour battery, 50% charge in 30 minutes
  • Lightweight full metal body, weighs just 1.28kg
  • Elegant logoless exterior, personalize with stickers Mi Cloud Sync, Mi Band 2 unlocking
  • Windows 10 Home

For the smaller variant 12.5-inch variant, you’ll get:

  • Just 12.9mm thin
  • Full metal body, weighs only 1.07kg
  • Intel Core M3 processor, 11.5-hour battery
  • 4GB RAM + 128GB SATA SSD, expandable SSD slot
