Despite the drop in Xiaomi’s earnings in the last quarter, the Chinese company does not seem to be willing to slow down: on the contrary, it now seems that Xiaomi wants to enter the PC industrywith a proposed Mi series mini-PC that could be launched very soon.
According to what he reports WCCF Techindeed, during the Xiaomi 13 launch event, originally scheduled for December 1st but then postponed due to the death of former Chinese President Jiang Zemin, Xiaomi would have presented a mini-PC called Xiaomi Host Mini PC, which has been leaked by some insiders via posts on Weibo.
In the past few hours, Xiaomi’s Mini PC has also been leaked in an image, which was found at the bottom and which shows its chassis. The device should have a only 100W power supply while supporting a two-slot discrete GPU. Outside, however, we have a matte black design with a hexagonal pattern on part of the bottom panel of the device.
The most concerning thing about the chassis is the lack of outlets for fans on the sides of the Mini-PC shown in the image, but it is still possible that they have been integrated on the other surfaces of the device, which do not appear in the photo. In general, the desktop should be able to count on two 80-90mm fans and should support Mini-ITX motherboards.
Also in the past few hours, then, the data sheet of a second Mini-PC, also from Xiaomi but different from the Xiaomi Host Mini: the device should mount an AMD Ryzen 7 68000H APU and present a Radeon 680M iGPU (therefore not a discrete graphics like the Host Mini), a 512 GB SSD and no better RAM specified (perhaps equal to 8GB). The price of the device should be around 550 Euros.
