RedmiBook 13 has been officially unveiled with a narrow-edge display to offer a “full screen” experience. Taking on the Huawei MateBook 13 that had 4.4mm thick bezels to deliver 88 percent screen-to-body ratio, the RedmiBook 13 is touted to offer 89 percent screen space. The new RedmiBook is also claimed to have a custom fan that increases the air volume by 25 percent along with reduced noise by two decibels over what we saw on earlier RedmiBook models. The RedmiBook 13 is powered by the 10th generation Intel Core processor.

It goes up to CNY 5,199 for the configuration that includes a Core i7 processor, paired with 8GB RAM and 512GB SSD. The notebook is set to go on pre-orders in China starting today, while its availability will begin from Thursday, December 12.
