The Redmi Note series is Xiaomi’s popular budget smartphone lineup that has always featured flagship-like features at an affordable price. Over the years, the company has been gradually introducing more advanced cameras to the lineup while improving battery life, charging speed, and user-friendliness.
Xiaomi’s latest smartphone in the lineup, the Redmi Note 13 series, takes this trend to a new level. The new series has just been launched in China, including a standard Redmi Note 13, Redmi Note 13 Pro, and a high-end Redmi Note 13 Pro+ model. The three handsets are expected to be released as Chinese exclusives, with global variants likely to follow in the following months.
The base Redmi Note 13 will start at $150 in the country, and it will come with a flat 6.67-inch AMOLED display with 1080 x 2400 pixel resolution, 120Hz refresh rate, 1000-nit brightness, and Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protection. The device also has a side-mounted fingerprint scanner, loudspeaker, 3.5mm headphone jack, USB-C port, and a 5,000mAh battery. The phone runs Android 13 based on MIUI 14, and it’s offered in three color options: Midnight Dark, Star Sand White, and Time Blue.
Moving on to the Redmi Note 13 Pro, this device will be powered by the Snapdragon 7s Gen 2 – Qualcomm’s latest midrange chipset announced recently. The phone will have 8 GB or 12 GB of RAM and 128 GB or 256 GB of internal storage. The Redmi Note 13 Pro will also feature a dual rear camera setup with a 100MP sensor and a 2MP depth sensor, a 16MP front camera, and an IP54 rating for dust and water resistance.
Xiaomi hasn’t yet confirmed the pricing of the Redmi Note 13 Pro in India, but we expect it to be priced similarly to the other two models. The Redmi Note 13 Pro will be available for purchase starting next week and sold in Black, White, and Blue color options.
Finally, the highest-end handset in the series, the Redmi Note 13 Pro+, will be available for purchase in China starting on September 21. This phone will be sold in the same color options as the other two, but it will cost a bit more at RMB 1,999 (Rs 23,000). The Pro+ is also going to feature a curved 6.67-inch AMOLED screen with FHD+ resolution, a 120Hz refresh rate, 10-bit color depth, 5M:1 contrast, 100% DCI-P3 color space coverage, and SGS Low Blue Light certification.
All three handsets in the Redmi Note 13 series will be available for purchase starting next week, with the Pro and the Pro+ models hitting retail shelves first. The standard variant will be released a few weeks later. Interested buyers can now pre-order the phones from Xiaomi’s official website in China, with the sale starting next week.
