After the mass success of the Mi NoteBook 14, Xiaomi has now brought RedmiBook to the Indian market. The laptop was launched today during an online event. Here, we will be looking at the specs, features, expected price, and availability RedmiBook 15 in Nepal.
RedmiBook Pro Overview:
RedmiBook Series is the first notebook under the Redmi brand to have made it to the South Asian market.

The chassis looks to be made up of plastic. It is 19.9mm thick and weighs around 1.8kg. Redmi has topped it up with a Charcoal Grey color.
CPU and Performance
Inside, the laptop is powered by the latest Intel Core i5-11300H processor. The Tiger Lake chip features four CPU cores with a maximum clock frequency of 4.4GHz.
