In a mega announcement today, Xiaomi revealed that it’s planning to bring the Xiaomi Book S 12.4” laptop to international markets. The 2-in-1 laptop features a touchscreen with Xiaomi Smart Pen and Keyboard support to make you more productive. The laptop comes pre-loaded with Windows 11 so you are set to get the latest updates from Microsoft as and when they’re ready.

The 12.4” touchscreen display supports 500 nits max brightness and a 2560 x 1600 resolution. The LCD also supports 100% sRGB colour gamut for enhanced colours and details. On the processing front, the Xiaomi Book S 12.4” comes with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8cx Gen 2 compute platform. There is 8 GB RAM inside so it should be good for most use cases and there’s 256 GB of storage.

One of the disappointing aspects of this new device is that the Xiaomi Smart Pen and Keyboard are sold separately. If you want to get these included, you’ll need to buy the €799 bundle, according to Liliputing. Another drawback of this device is that it’s running Windows 11 in S Mode which means you’re restricted to using programs from the Microsoft Store.

Xiaomi says you can pick up the device through official channels. It appears to be on sale in Germany already and the product page is viewable on the UK website but there’s no option to buy it there just yet. To see whether it’s available in your country, just head over to your local Mi.com.
