Xiaomi has finally launched its new Ryzen-series RedmiBook 16 in an online launch event. It comes with an updated design similar to the Mi Notebooks. Just like Apple, Xiaomi has also placed a 16-inch variant in its RedmiBook lineup. Other than that, the RedmiBook series laptops come with Ryzen 4000 series CPUs coupled with Vega 6 and Vega 7 integrated graphics.
RedmiBook 16 Configuration
First, let’s talk about design. The new RedmiBook 16 comes with a metallic finish and a polycarbonate body, which makes it super-slim and neater. In other words, it looks similar to the Mi Notebook. The bezels on this one are ultra-thin at the top and side but still thick at the bottom.
Second, let’s talk about the display. The RedmiBook 16 comes with a 16.1-inch display with a screen resolution of 1920×1080 pixels. It features a screen-to-body ratio of up to 90 % and an sRGB color gamut up to 100%. The refresh rate on this one is up to 60Hz.
As for the internals, the RedmiBook 16 comes with the latest AMD Ryzen 4000 series CPUs. It comes in two variants, either an AMD Ryzen 5 4500U or a Ryzen 7 4700U. Also, both of them come with 16GB of RAM and up to 512GB SSD storage. However, there is no integrated graphics card on this laptop. So, you have to rely on the integrated Vega 5 or Vega 7 graphics.
The battery on this one is a 46Whr battery with a USB Type-C port. Out of the box, you get a 65W power adapter, which Xiaomi claims will last you up to 12 hours on a single charge. Also, it can charge up your device up to 50% in just 38 minutes.
