Xiaomi’s Redmi sub-brand have released its first gaming laptop. Considering Redmi’s background, this is an answered prayer for those who are looking for an affordable gaming laptop.
Let’s get into it. The Redmi G Gaming Laptop is available in three configurations: there’s the Intel Core i5-10200H CPU / NVIDIA GTX 1650 GPU / 60Hz screen for a price of CNY4,999 (around Php35,000), Intel Core i5-10300H / GTX 1650 Ti / 144Hz for CNY5,799 (~Php40,600), while the top-tier Intel Core i7-10750H / GTX 1650 Ti / 144Hz model costs CNY6,599 (approximately Php46,200).
Being a gaming laptop, it’s not the most compact device around with its 16.1-inch display. Albeit, it’s still relatively sleek for a gaming machine. The screen itself has FHD resolution with 100% sRGB coverage. No official word if it sports G-Sync.
The small chassis also means that it will have a relatively small battery, 55Wh to be exact. However, Xiaomi did promise that its large cooling vents and heat pipes will improve the thermals.

It’s also well-equipped in the connectivity department. It comes with WiFi 6, Gigabit Ethernet, and Bluetooth 5.1. You can check the full specs list below.
The Xiaomi Redmi G will be available in China starting August 17. Weather or not it will release on other markets, especially in the Philippines, is yet to be announced.
