RedmiBook Pro 15 with Ryzen 5800H and 90 Hz display unveiled, Pro 14 with Ryzen 5700U follows
They were supposed to come out together, but the Intel-powered RedmiBook Pro laptops were unveiled in late February, while the AMD-powered ones are only arriving now. Better late than never we assume. There are two Ryzen-based laptops to choose from, a 14 “and a 15.6”, each with two options for APU.

The RedmiBook Pro 15 is available with either the Ryzen 5 5600H (6c / 12h) or the Ryzen 7 5800H (8c / 16h). Both are 35W TDP parts based on the latest Zen 3 core (Cezanne). Laptops rely on their integrated Radeon graphics (with 7 and 8 CU respectively) as there is no additional GPU.

The two RedmiBook Pro 14s fall to 15 W APUs – Ryzen 5 5500U (6c / 12h) and Ryzen 7 5700U (8c / 16h). Note that both of these are based on the older Zen 2 core (Lucienne). The H-Series APUs get dual fan cooling, while the U-Series with lower power is cooled by a single fan.

The 15.6 ”laptops have the better screen, a 3,200 x 2,000 px panel (16:10) with 90 Hz refresh rate and DC attenuation. This targets 100% sRGB coverage, 300 nit brightness and 1,500: 1 contrast ratio.
The 14 ”model also has a 16:10 screen, although it is less sharp due to its 2,560 x 1,600 px resolution (it is 242 ppi versus 216 ppi). The smaller panel also sticks to the standard 60 Hz, but at least it matches the other with 100% sRGB, 300 nit brightness and DC attenuation.

Of course, the larger laptop weighs more, 1.8 kg (3.97 lbs), but also has a larger battery – a 70 WHr battery with support for 100W fast charging. The smaller model is lighter, 1.42 kg (3.13 lbs) and has a 56 WHr battery with 65W charge. Both batteries can operate for 14 hours of browsing before being charged.
CNC machined aluminum hooks on both parts • No numpads on both sides
In both cases, the chassis is CNC machined aluminum. You get two USB-C ports, a USB-A, an HDMI port and headphone jack along with Wi-Fi 6 connection. There is also a fingerprint reader built into the power button.
Whichever size or APU you choose, the laptop comes configured with 16GB of dual channel DDR4 RAM and a 512GB SSD. Sales of the two RedmiBook Pro Ryzen Edition laptops start on June 1, prices are below.
