In line with our earlier report, Xiaomi today launched its next-gen Redmibooks based on AMD’s Ryzen 4000 mobile processors (Renoir APUs). These come in three screen sizes: 13″, 14″ and 16″. Surprisingly, the base price for the three is expected to be the same, 3999 Chinese Yuan. These notebooks will utilize the 15W Renoir U series APUs. The Ryzen 5 4500U model with 8GB LPDRR4(X) memory will cost around $499 while upgrading to 16GB will cost you another $50. The base config is expected to come with 512GB of NVMe based SSD storage.
Update: The US prices may vary by $15-30 bit due to shipping and conversion rates.
The higher-end Ryzen 7 4700U powered variants are going to cost between $625 and $650. They’ll come with 16GB of memory and 1TB of SSD storage. There’s no word on whether you’ll be able to opt for a lower-end Ryzen 3 part.
The 14″ and 16″ models have a 90% screen-to-body ratio, while the 13-inch variant is limited to 89%. All three notebooks have a decent color calibration, covering 100% of the sRGB color gamut.
As far as the battery life goes, Xiaomi promises a duration of 12 hours. The largest 16″ model has a 46Whr battery under the hood which also supports a form of fast charge. The OEM claims that the notebooks can be charged up to 50% in just 38 minutes using this technology.
The new Redmibook notebooks will go on sale starting on he 1st of June. Pre-orders will go live starting tonight.
