The Redmi G gaming notebook comes with Windows 10 Home pre-installed. It features a 16.1-inch full-HD (1,920 x 1,080 pixels) display with a refresh rate of 144Hz. The Redmi G comes with the 10th-generation Intel Core i7-10750H CPU with six cores and 12 threads. The graphics are handled by up to Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650 Ti GPU. The display also supports DC Dimming technology, which effectively reduces eye discomfort caused by the screen during daily use. The gaming notebook comes with 16GB of DDR4 RAM clocked at 2,933MHz and 512GB PCIe x4 NVMe SSD for storage.
Unlike other gaming laptop brands, Redmi G has moved the camera and microphone to the bottom of the screen. So that the laptop’s top bezel can be reduced for a more modern design.
As for I/O, you can expect two USB 3.2 ports, one USB 2.0 port, a USB-C slot, mini-DisplayPort 1.4 slots, HDMI 2.0 output, Ethernet, and a 3.5mm port.

Xiaomi says the 55-watt hour battery only works for 5.5 hours of 1080p local video playback or up to six hours of web browsing.
Due to the 144Hz refresh rate, Redmi G provides a smoother feeling of use during a gaming period and its DC Dimming technology reduces eye discomfort caused by the screen during daily use.
