Xiaomi brings Windows convertible, Mi Band 7 and e-step to the Netherlands


Xiaomi will soon introduce the Xiaomi Book S in the Netherlands, a 12.4 inch tablet with Windows 11 and an included keyboard. In addition, the affordable Xiaomi Mi Band 7 fitness tracker and the Electric Scooter 4 Pro, the latest electric scooter in our country, will appear. The company reports this at a press conference in Paris where Computer!Totaal is present.

Xiaomi looks at the Microsoft Surface Go

The Book S is Xiaomi’s first convertible with Windows 11 and can be tilted via a kickstand. The device has a touch-sensitive screen of 12.4 inches (WQHD resolution), runs on a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8cx Gen 2 processor and has at least X GB of RAM. The storage memory is at least X in size. The device has a Full HD webcam. The convertible comes with a wireless stylus pen for notes and notes and a detachable backlit keyboard. The keyboard clicks on the Book S via a magnetic connector. According to Xiaomi, the battery of the Book S lasts up to thirteen hours. Charging is done via a USB-C connection with the included 65 Watt adapter.

Xiaomi will soon release the Book S in the Netherlands for a suggested retail price from 700 euros excluding keyboard (150 euros). Computer!Totaal will soon publish a review of the device.

In terms of design, specs and price, Xiaomi’s convertible is – on paper – a formidable competitor to the Microsoft Surface Go 3 and also the Surface Pro 8.

Xiaomi Mi Band 7

The Xiaomi Mi Band 7 will also be released in the Netherlands in the short term. This fitness tracker has already been launched in China before. In the Netherlands, the Mi Band 7 will cost sixty euros. The wearable succeeds the Mi Band 6 and has, among other things, a larger screen (1.62 inches). With the Mi Band 7 you can measure your heart rate, sleep rhythm, breathing and the oxygen level in your blood. The wearable can also register various sports and is waterproof. According to Xiaomi, the battery lasts up to fourteen days before you have to grab the charger.

Electric scooter

Xiaomi also announces that its new Electric Scooter 4 Pro will appear in the Netherlands. This electric scooter will cost 799 euros and has a range of up to 45 kilometers. The scooter has a maximum speed of 25 kilometers per hour. Please note that no electric scooters are allowed on public roads in the Netherlands. With a scooter like this you can officially only drive on your own terrain. The legislation may change in 2023 and such scooters will be allowed on public roads.

The scooter is higher than previous models, according to Xiaomi at the request of users who find existing e-steps too low. In addition, the scooter has larger and sturdier tires that can better withstand nails on the road, for example, according to Xiaomi.

New smart TV

At the event in Paris, Xiaomi will also introduce a new television, the Xiaomi TV A2. This TV has a 55-inch screen with 4K resolution and a refresh rate of 60 Hz. This refresh rate makes the TV less suitable for the latest gaming consoles, which are suitable for 4K playback at 120 Hz. The TV A2 supports Dolby Vision, has two 12-watt speakers and runs on Android TV. The latter is striking, because Android TV has been succeeded by Google TV. That software has a fresher look and more functions, but can not be found on this new smart TV.

The Xiaomi TV A2 is available in 32” and 43” for €249.99 and €449.99 respectively. The release is planned for the end of July.
