Right around this time last year, Redmi jumped into the ultrabook market with the RedmiBook 14. One year later, Redmi has refreshed its first ultrabook. The new RedmiBook 14 II (2020) looks somewhat the same but now comes with a Ryzen chipset. Let’s check out more about the specs, features, price, and expected availability of RedmiBook 14 II (2020) in Nepal.
RedmiBook 14 2020 Overview
Design and Display
RedmiBook 14 2020 doesn’t look any different than its predecessor. You may say both of them have been heavily inspired by Apple’s MacBook Pro. It comes with a 14-inch display with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels. The bezels around the screen are slim, contributing to the 90.6% screen to body ratio.
It features an all-metal body with a toy-textured finish on top. Its light at 1.2 kg and is available in Moonlight Silver.
Performance and Memory
Redmi has been tight-lipped about the exact chipset use in the device. But it will be one of the AMD’s Ryzen 4000U mobile chipsets. The chipsets are based on AMD’s Zen 2 architecture and manufactured using the 7nm process. It features a Ryzen 5 processor, most probably one of R5 4500U and R5 4600U. The processor will come with one of AMD’s integrated Radeon graphics.

Redmi 14 2020 features heat pipes of 8mm diameter, which can increase the heat transfer by about 35% compared to heat pipes with 6mm diameter. Redmi has also increased the fan size on this one. The new Ryzen 14 comes with 30% lager fans. With a larger fans, the device manages to push out 22% more air volume even when the speed is reduced by 6%. Thus, you get both quiet and efficient cooling.
