Xiaomi is reportedly set to launch its Redmi Book Pro laptop lineup refresh for 2022. According to reports, Xiaomi has posted on Chinese social media channel Weibo, confirming that the new crop of Redmi-branded laptops will be launched in China this week itself. The Redmi Book line of laptops were launched in India last year as well, which suggests that once the new units are introduced in China, they may be launched in India as well this year.
Redmi Book Pro (2022): Everything We Know
According to reports, the Redmi Book Pro (2022) lineup is set to be launched in China at 7PM Beijing Time on Thursday, March 17. No further official details have been revealed, but Xiaomi’s teaser post on the Chinese social media platform says, “This time, the RedmiBook Pro is positioned to be upgraded, to challenge the peak performance of thin and light notebooks for your reckless love, and to create a ruthless character with soaring combat power, whose performance is beyond imagination.”
From the teaser post, it would so appear that the Redmi Book Pro (2022) laptops would take on the thin and light sector. Xiaomi and Redmi’s laptops have typically always had a value play about their offering, taking on higher price segment offerings with specifications. It would be interesting to see if Redmi also targets the ultrabook segment this year with slimmer offerings than before.
A recent Geekbench 5 benchmark report suggested that one of the laptop SKUs could be powered by the 12th gen Intel Core i7-12650H CPU. The latter suggests that the Redmi Book Pro (2022) lineup could feature higher performance variants, since this processor SKU is a 10-core setup with six performance cores, 4.7GHz boost clock speed and 45W throughput. The laptop scored significantly higher than the previous Redmi Book laptops on the platform, and the efficiency benefits of the Intel 12th generation process is there as well.
Previously, two variants of the ‘Pro’ versions of the Redmi Book laptop range recently appeared on the Bluetooth SIG website as well, suggesting at least three variants with a 14-inch display, and four variants with a 15-inch display. This suggests that the overall lineup could be an elaborate one. However, all other details remain under wraps for now – which would become more apparent in about two days.
