The Redmi Book Pro 15 2022 notebook has fully upgraded the mold compared to the previous generation. It adopts 6 series aviation aluminum alloy and 170 precision ceramic sandblasting processes. The texture makes us feel that we are working on a top-end notebook.
Though this is a 15.6-inch large-screen notebook coming with many improved features, the thickness is only 14.9mm and the weight is 1.8kg. Thus, it is 15.6% lighter than the previous generation.
This laptop sports a 15.6-inch 3.2K display, which comes with a 90Hz refresh rate. The rest of the display parameters include a 3200×2000 resolution and a brightness of 400 nits. In simple words, it can clearly display content in sunlight. We should also mention the 1500:1 contrast ratio, 100% sRGB high color gamut, Delta E < 1.5, etc.

The machine has an 80W of power consumption, which is the highest performance release in the history of the Redmi Book.
Well, all the above-mentioned features are very attractive. But they require a lot of power. For this, the company has put a large 72Wh battery under the hood.
