The new series of RedmiBook laptops is here after much teasing by Xiaomi. Launched alongside the Redmi 10X, Xiaomi will offer the RedmiBook in three display options. Called the RedmiBook 13, RedmiBook 14 and RedmiBook 16, all will be available with the same choices of processors, RAM and storage. A 1 TB SSD will only be available with on the RedmiBook 13, though.

As we have covered previously, the new RedmiBooks will have 90% screen-to-body ratios and will offer 100% coverage of the sRGB colour space. The devices have two USB Type-A ports, two Type-C ports, an HDMI output, a fingerprint scanner and a 3.5 mm headphone jack too.

The RedmiBook 16 will also have a 46 Wh battery, which seems rather small for such a large device. Similarly, the RedmiBook 13 and RedmiBook 14 have 40 Wh batteries. According to Gadgets 360, all three devices will have 1080p panels, but the RedmiBook 16 will get 50 nits brighter than the others at 300 nits. Additionally, the devices will have the following footprints: 

  • RedmiBook 13: 307.3 x 195 x 17.8 mm - 1.23 kg
  • RedmiBook 14: 320 x 203 x 16.85 mm - 1.2 kg
  • RedmiBook 16: 367.20 x 232.85 x 17.55 mm - 1.8 kg

A presale for the new laptops will begin today and will end on May 31. The three laptops will then go on general sale from June 1 in China. There is no word on international pricing or availability. The new RedmiBook series will be available in the following SKUs and prices:
