Xiaomi Book S hardware

Let’s start by talking about the internal components. O Xiaomi S Book features a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8cx Gen 2 processor, which includes eight processing cores. This chip was specifically designed by Qualcomm to run Windows. But Xiaomi could have used the Snapdragon 8cx gen 3, which is the most common model and with more firepower. But that would probably make the device more expensive.

Although this is the great differential of the Xiaomi Book S, it is not the first time that the industry has seen a device with an Arm processor running Windows. the clean Microsoft have such devices. This is the case of the Surface Pro X, which is also 2 in 1.

The Xiaomi Book S also has 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB of storage via SSD. This set should give a very acceptable performance for most users.

good quality screen

The display of the Xiaomi Book S is also very interesting and attracts attention. It measures 12.4 inches and uses an IPS LCD panel. The resolution is 2560 x 1600 pixels, peak brightness is 500 nits (which is pretty loud) and the panel is still capable of displaying 100% of the DCI-P3 color spectrum. Oh! And it even has Gorilla Glass 3 protection!

And what is the reason for having such a beautiful screen? The answer lies precisely in the proposal of the device, which must function as a tablet and also as a laptop. A tablet, on its own, should already have a good quality screen as a priority. And this need increases even more when this tablet can be used as a laptop.
