At the Smarter Living 2022 event, Xiaomi finally unveiled the Mi Notebook Pro and Mi Notebook Ultra in India. These laptops sound a lot like the RedmiBook Pro 14 and RedmiBook Pro 15 laptops that were introduced earlier this year in China. Let’s see what these new devices have to offer, as well as how much they cost.
Xiaomi Mi Notebook Pro & Ultra Specifications
Xiaomi’s newest laptops for India include an aluminum alloy construction with a grey color finish. The Pro model weighs 1.46kg and has a thickness of 17.3mm. The Ultra model’s weight and thickness are 1.79kg and 17.9mm, respectively.
Both notebooks are available in three different colors. The basic model is equipped with an Intel Core i5-11300H CPU, 8GB DDR4 3200MHz RAM, and a 512GB NVMe SSD.
The mid-range model has the same specs as the high-end model, but with 16GB of RAM. The top model, on the other hand, comes with a more powerful Intel Core i7-11370H CPU, as well as the same amount of RAM and storage as the mid version.
The display and battery are the main differences between the two laptops. The Pro model features a 14-inch 2.5K LCD panel with a resolution of 2560 x 1600 pixels, 215 PPI, 16:10 aspect ratio, 100 percent sRGB color gamut, 300 nits brightness, DC dimming, and TÜV Rheinland low blue light emission certification, as well as a 14-inch 2.5K LCD panel with a resolution of 2560 x 1600 pixels, 215 PPI, 16:10 aspect ratio, 100 percent sRGB color.
On the other side, it is 15.6-inch larger on the Ultra model and has a 3.2K (3200 x 2000 pixels) higher resolution, 242 PPI, and 90 Hz refresh while retaining all other features on the lower model of the display.
The laptops have one USB Type-C port, one Thunderbolt 4 port, one USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type-A port, one USB 2.0 Type-A port, one HDMI port, and one 3.5mm combo audio jack. WiFi 6 and Bluetooth 5.1 are supported by both PCs in terms of connectivity.
A three-level illuminated keyboard with a scissor mechanism, 1.3mm key travel, and a dedicated macro key is also included. They employ 2 x 2W stereo speakers with DTS Audio compatibility for audio. A 720p HD camera and a fingerprint sensor with Windows Hello support are also included.
The device is operated by Microsoft Windows 10 and is pre-installed with Microsoft Office 2019 with Mi SmartShare. They will be able to upgrade to Windows 11 once the update is available.
