The Redmi brand laptop, named Redmi Book, is nearby and Xiaomi has just been able to hold the information. If you visit Microsite for RedmiBook posters, you can learn a lot about it before launch. And, based on the things we’re seeing at the moment, it looks like Redmi is adopting its space-heavy strategy by practicing for the phone.
The company has already announced that the RedmiBook series is aimed at students, startups, first-time laptop buyers and those who are just looking for a basic laptop. With this goal in mind for viewers, the information released through the teaser is drawing a solid picture for the Redmibook series. And, similar to the MI notebook series from last year, it could give heavyweight champions from Dell, HP, Lenovo and Asus a run for their money.
RedmiBook Laptop: Which we already know
Since Redmi has revealed some key specifications, we list what we know about the series so far.
Processor: The RedmiBook laptop is going to offer Intel 11M General Tiger Lake Processor. It’s nice to see that Lot 11 doesn’t offer much more affordable than the Rs 50,000M General Chips.
Storage: Redmi has confirmed that it will use an SSD storage instead of a conventional hard drive. Having SSD onboard is going to help during fast booting and fast application loading. What remains to be seen is the storage capacity, which is likely to be 256GB for the base version.
Display: Unlike the 14-inch Mi notebook series, the RedmiBook will offer a 15.6-inch display. It is going to be a 1920 x 1080p IPS LCD display with the webcam integrated in the correct position (i.e. at the top). It will carry a thick bezel like most cheap Windows laptops.
Keyboard: From the render, RedmiBook models will get a full-size QWERTY keyboard without the Numpad. The trackpad seems to be bigger than most affordable Windows laptops.
Port: After tinkering with the renders, we realized that the Redmi Book laptops will have two USB ports, a 3.5mm headphone jack, an SD card slot and a proprietary charging port. There is also a Kensington lock but no sign of a USB-C port. Maybe Redmi is surprising it?
Battery: The teaser reveals that the RedmiBook series will provide up to 10 hours of battery life on a full charge. There is no mention of charging technology.
RedmiBook Laptop: Expectations
Price: Xiaomi currently sells the Mi Notebook 14 e-learning version for Rs 38,999 and Redmi may try to reduce it. Therefore, we expect that the original version of RedmiBook 15 will be less, or even less, than the Mi branded model. This could probably be for the Core i3 equipped model.
The Core i5 variants can be priced below Rs 50,000, most of them are different in terms of storage. We saw this pricing strategy with last year’s MI Notebook 14 range.
