Xiaomi has confirmed the design of the RedmiBook 16 ahead of its official release. Launching tomorrow, the RedmiBook 16 will also support up to 12 hours of battery life from its Ryzen 4000 Renoir processors. A plethora of ports are on board too, as is a fingerprint scanner.

The RedmiBook 16 is almost here, with Xiaomi having already confirmed heaps about one of its next Redmi-branded laptops. Previously, the company has claimed that the device's Ryzen 4000 Renoir processors will "deliver up to 60% better performance" compared to their predecessors. Additionally, the RedmiBook 16 has been shown to have a 16.1-inch display with a 90% screen-to-body ratio, putting it in direct competition with the MagicBook Pro 2020.

Xiaomi is not content with leaving any surprises before it announces the RedmiBook 16 tomorrow, though. Instead, it and its CEO have published yet more photos of the device. Based on the photos uploaded to Weibo, the RedmiBook 16 will have two USB Type-A ports, which Xiaomi has complemented with two Type-C ports, an HDMI output and a 3.5 mm headphone jack. It seems that Xiaomi has opted for downward-firing speakers too, along with a large trackpad that has integrated mouse buttons. Moreover, the device has a six-row keyboard that Xiaomi has recessed within its chassis. A fingerprint scanner is also on board, which would appear to be integrated within the power button.

Xiaomi is promising that the RedmiBook 16 will achieve up to 12 hours of battery life, too. The company is yet to disclose the capacity of the device's battery, but manufacturer battery life estimates rarely relate to real-world usage. The RedmiBook 16 will also feature fast-charging. According to Xiaomi, the RedmiBook 16 can reach 50% charge in just 38 minutes with its 65 W charger. The company has stressed the compactness of said charger, too.
Pricing remains a mystery, as does international availability. We imagine that third-party retailers like Gearbest will stock the RedmiBook 16 shortly after its release tomorrow at 14:00 China Standard Time (CST) (UTC+08:00), though.

We don't have what Ryzen 4000 processor this RedmiBook16 will have but 12 hours battery life is impressive to me, but I know there are some laptops out there can do 24 hours battery life with Intel cpu. This is AMD cpu laptop so it is impressive to me.

In China it's beaten by Lenovo's Ideapad 5 15. Too many weaknesses.

Hopefully OEMs Wil realize that Renoir delivers vastly superior efficiency for ULV designs. This is indeed promising

Ideapads are garbage, writing from one. Lenovo cant even come close to xiaomi's fine builds.

It's available for pre-order on Gearbest: https://m.gearbest.com/ultrabooks/pp_3008693117937832.html?wid=2000001

 

The high end model with the Ryzen 7 and 16GB of RAM at $870 is pretty tempting. Now I've never owned any Xiaomi laptop and my main concern here is the OS part. I know for a fact that their Android layer isn't well optimized, having own a Xiaomi phone. I also have a Huawei Matebook and the driver part/software optimization kinda sucks too.

 

Maybe that's what you have to sacrifice for the low price. I'll be waiting for the long term reviews though.
