Xiaomi– a Chinese company kept in mind for cloning Apple’s product designs, iOS look-and-feel as well as keynotes — is once again rumored to be pursuing the MacBook Air with its own premium-look laptop computer.

Reports initially surfaced at the end of in 2014, with an obviously Photoshopped image very reminiscent of the MBA design. Xiaomi at the time rejected that the image was its work, and stated that it was actually a clone understood as the Kaka i5. But Bloomberg reports that the business is undoubtedly considering introducing an ultra-light laptop in the first quarter of 2016.

Xiaomi Corp. is thinking about the introduction of its first laptop early next year, people with direct knowledge of the matter stated, opening a new front in its battle versus Apple Inc. and Lenovo Group Ltd. . Xiaomi’s notebook might go on sale in the very first quarter.

The business is said to have held talks with Samsung to go over the supply of memory chips and displays for the un-named laptop computer. Both Xiaomi and Samsung decreased to comment.Filed under: Mac Tagged: Apple Inc, china, design, MacBook Air, Samsung, Xiaomi
