February 25 will be a big day for Redmi – besides unbelieving the new K40 series of flagships, the brand will also introduce a new RedmiBook Pro 15 model. A model that has been teased since early January.
The laptop will be powered by an 11th-gen Intel processor, a Tiger Lake H35, a 35W quad-core/8-thread processor with Iris Xe graphics, all of that fabbed on Intel’s 10 nm Superfin process. There will be a Core i5 version as well. In both cases, an Nvidia GeForce MX450 GPU will be added for extra processing power.
The 15” laptop will have an aluminum exterior and a backlit keyboard. From some of the teaser images we can also spot a USB-C port and a full size HDMI port. What we can’t see (but Geekbench revealed) is 16 GB of RAM. And, yes, it will have a built-in webcam (which isn’t the case for all laptops coming from Xiaomi).
And there will be an AMD-powered version too. That will be dubbed RedmiBook Pro 15S and will come with Ryzen 5 5600H and Ryzen 7 5800H chips.
While it hasn’t been featured in the teaser campaign, a 14” Ryzen-powered laptop has been doing the rounds on Geekbench as well, the RedmiBook Pro 14S. This one will get a 15W Ryzen 5 5700U processor instead. It’s not clear if there will be an Intel-powered 14” model or not – that we will find out in a couple of weeks.
