Xiaomi has now released a new teaser showing the upcoming Redmi G (2021) compared to what would be its closest rivals, the Lenovo Legion 5 and Asus TUF A15. As expected, the Redmi gaming laptop looks to have an advantage. On paper, at least.

Xiaomi will show ambition with its next mobile tech product, the upcoming Redmi G (2021). The company will launch the Redmi G (2021) tomorrow in China and has now published a teaser pitting the laptop against two other gaming laptops from rival companies. 

In a post on Weibo, Xiaomi compared the upcoming Redmi G (2021) to what looks to be the Lenovo Legion 5 and Asus TUF A15 gaming laptops. The teaser shows the Redmi G (2021) offering better specs than the competition, with more heat pipes (5) when compared to the Lenovo (3) and Asus (4). The Redmi G (2021) and its dual 12 V fans also appear more impressive than the Lenovo Legion 5's dual 10 V setup. 

This supposed domination carries over to displays, with the Redmi G (2021) and its 16.1-inch 144 Hz being on par, at least, with the Lenovo's 15.6-inch 165 Hz screen and the A15's 15.6-inch 144 Hz display. Of course, those are just specs on paper, and real-world display quality may be a different matter. 

Interestingly, Xiaomi also lists the competition's price tags. While all three laptops feature AMD's Ryzen 7 5800H and the GeForce RTX 3060, the Lenovo Legion 5 and Asus TUF A15 cost CNY 8,366 and CNY 7,899 respectively. If this teaser is any indication, Xiaomi will be looking to undercut both laptops, which would make the Redmi G (2021) cheaper than the Asus—essentially implying pricing lower than the equivalent of US1$1200. The first-gen Redmi G cost CNY 6,999 when fully specced, so we expect the Redmi G (2021) to be priced somewhere between. 

Buy the Lenovo Legion 5 gaming laptop on Amazon.

I like tech, simple as. Half the time, you can catch me writing snarky sales copy. The rest of the time, I'm either keeping readers abreast with the latest happenings in the mobile tech world or watching football. I worked as both a journo and freelance content writer for a couple of years before joining the Notebookcheck team in 2017. Feel free to shoot me some questions on Twitter or Reddit if it so tickles thine fancy.
