Xiaomi recently expanded its laptop series with the 2022 iteration of 16” and 14” Xiaomi Book Pro. In this article, we will be discussing the specs, features, expected price and availability of the Xiaomi Book Pro Series (2022) in Nepal.
Xiaomi Book Pro 2022 (14”/16”) Overview:
Design and Display
The new Xiaomi Book Pro (14/16) comes with aircraft-grade aluminum chassis made using an advanced CNC process. Both laptops measure 14.9mm in thickness. That being said, the 14” model is more portable because of its smaller size and lighter form factor.
Except for the screen’s diagonal length and resolution, the display on the new 14” and 16” Xiaomi Book Pro are basically the same. Here, you get the Samsung-made E4 OLED touch screen with 100% DCI-P3 coverage and 600 nits of peak brightness.
These are 10-bit panels and thus support over a billion colors. Xiaomi has even come up with an in-house color correction algorithm for higher color-accuracy.
Performance and Memory
Under the hood, you get the latest Intel Alder Lake P-series processors. Xiaomi gives you the option to choose between 12th Gen Intel Core i5-1240P and Core i7-1260P. Both processors feature 12 cores and 16 threads, but the Core i7 can reach higher clock speeds of up to 4.7GHz. Furthermore, it even has a bigger 18MB cache.
The two new laptops also have EVO certification, which means they meet the standards set by Intel for ultrabook laptops. Despite being thin-and-light laptops, Xiaomi has included a dual-fan cooling setup along with dual-fan radiators, outlets, and heat pipes on the new 14” and 16” Book Pros.
The base variants of the Xiaomi Book Pro series (2022) rely on the integrated Intel Iris Xe graphics. However, users can opt for the higher-end models with the RTX 2050 GPU from NVIDIA. There is even a MX550 option exclusive to the 14” model.
Xiaomi is offering its latest 14” and 16” Book Pro (2022) in a single 16GB LPDDR5 dual-channel RAM and 512GB of PCIe 4.0 SSD storage.
Rest of the Specs
Xiaomi Book Pro 14 OLED (2022) is fueled by a 56Wh battery pack, whereas it is increased to 70Wh on the 16” model. Irrespective of the battery size, Xiaomi ships the laptops with 100W GaN chargers.
As for I/O, the new Xiaomi Book Pro laptops come with two full-fledged USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-C ports with DisplayPort 1.4 and PD charging. There is also an additional Thunderbolt 4 port capable of single 8K or dual 4K output.
