The new generation of Xiaomi Book Pro laptops incorporates high-resolution OLED touch screens with a slim chassis, Intel processors and they also have the Intel Evo certification, which is reserved for quality ultrabooks. In the case of the model with a 16-inch screen, it is the most powerful laptop that the brand has launched on the market to date.
Regarding the characteristics of the screen, both the 14-inch and 16-inch models are OLEDs created by Xiaomi itself and cover 100% of the sRGB and CPI-P3 color spectra, they are tactile, they have support for Dolby Vision, are protected with Gorilla Glass, work with an aspect ratio of 16:10 and cover 90% of the laptop’s space.

At the graphic level there is a dual configuration. On the one hand we have the integrated Xe of the processor, but on the other, the model with a screen of 16 inches can incorporate an NVIDIA RTX 2050 graphicswhile the one on the screen of 14 inches can additionally bring a GeForce MX 550 or the aforementioned RTX 2050.
