Xiaomi may be preparing to launch its first line of compact desktops. According to leaks released on the social network Weibo this Friday (02), the Chinese giant will announce the models with advanced hardware and prices in the range of BRL 3 thousand.

Apparently, the Xiaomi Host won’t come with any piece of hardware by default except for one XM22AL5X power supply only 100W🇧🇷 Compact, the cabinet should serve as a base for installing modular low-power hardware kits. It is possible to observe that the model has an area for up to two dedicated video card slots.
The case would give users the option to customize hardware components, but with low-power parts, as its form factor precludes the use of advanced cooling solutions and appears to require a Mini-ITX form factor motherboard. .

Normally, pressing “Windows” + “M” on a Windows device minimizes all windows to display the Desktop, but the spelling of these keys in the instruction manual and on the power supply suggests that this shortcut would serve to another command on Xiaomi Host.
