Xiaomi unveils the Redmi G, a gaming laptop with a 16.1-inch and 144 Hz display
Xiaomi has finally unveiled the Redmi G, its latest gaming laptop. Today's release follows multiple teasers, on which we have previously reported. Xiaomi has indeed gone with a nosecam for the Redmi G, which sits below a 16.1-inch IPS panel. The display has a 16:9 aspect ratio and operates at 1,920 x 1,080 pixels. The display apparently peaks at 300 nits and covers 100% of the sRGB colour space.
The Redmi G is available in three SKUs, although only the top two models come with a 144 Hz panel and a GTX 1650 Ti GPU. If you opt for the entry-level model, then you must make do with a 60 Hz panel and the lesser GTX 1650. Xiaomi also equips this version with a Core i5-10200H processor, but it offers the Core i5-10300H and Core i7-10750H with the GTX 1650 Ti. All versions are cooled by dual heatpipes and fans. The prices of the three configurations are as follows:
- Core i5-10200H/GTX 1650 - CNY 4,999 (~US$720)
- Core i5-10300H/GTX 1650 Ti - CNY 5,799 (~US$835)
- Core i7-10750H/GTX 1650 Ti - CNY 6,599 (~US$950)
All models come with 16 GB of DDR4-2993 dual-channel RAM and a 512 GB PCIe x4 NVMe SSD. The device weighs around 2.5 kg and measures 373.44 x 264.47 x 24.35 mm at its thickest point. Xiaomi has included a large trackpad, a backlit keyboard and what should be enough ports for most gamers. The device is also powered by a 55 Wh battery, which is rated for up to 5:30 hours battery life. It is unclear if Xiaomi will sell the Redmi G outside of China. However, third-party retailers should even if Xiaomi decides not to do so.
