Xiaomi Redmi G 2022 presented with a 2.5K and 165 Hz display, plus mid-range gaming hardware
Xiaomi has unveiled the Redmi G 2022 in China, where it will be orderable later this month. As expected, the Redmi G 2022 will be about as powerful as the Redmi G 2021. However, Xiaomi has reduced the Redmi G's footprint, as well as equipping it with a higher resolution and a faster display. For reference, Xiaomi has only released an Intel model for now; typically, Xiaomi announces AMD-powered models at some stage too.
On the one hand, the Redmi G 2022 is noticeably smaller than its predecessor. Specifically, the laptop measures 360.5 x 261.1 x 22.3-25.1 mm, compared to 373.44 x 264.47 x 23.1-24.35 mm for the Redmi G 2021. Likewise, while the latter weighs 2.6 kg, the former tips the scales at 2.4 kg. The Redmi G 2022 retains a full-sized keyboard with a large trackpad though, along with a number pad. Additionally, the Redmi G 2022 ships with the following ports, most of which Xiaomi has included on its rear.
- 1x 3.5 mm jack
- 1x HDMI 2.1
- 1x Mini DisplayPort 1.4
- 1x Power connector
- 1x RJ45
- 1x SD card reader
- 1x Thunderbolt 4
- 1x USB 2.0 Type-A
- 3x USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-A
On the other hand, Xiaomi has equipped the Redmi G 2022 with a 16-inch display that has a 16:10 aspect ratio. By contrast, the Redmi G 2022 relies on a 16:9 panel. Moreover, the newer laptop utilises a 2,560 x 1,600-pixel panel that also outputs at 165 Hz with a 1,200:1 contrast ratio and 500 nits of peak brightness. According to Xiaomi, the display offers a 91% screen-to-body ratio, VESA DisplayHDR 400 certification, Rheinland TÜV low blue light certification and Delta E <1.5 deviations.
The Redmi G 2022 starts at CNY 7,499 (~US$1,110) with an Intel Core i5-12450H processor and an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3050 GPU. Alternatively, Xiaomi sells the laptop with a Core i7-12650H and the same GPU for CNY 7,999 (~US$1,184), or with an RTX 3050 Ti for CNY 8,299 (~US$1,229). All configurations ship with 16 GB of RAM and 512 GB of storage.
