Xiaomi launched the Redmi Note 13 series in China back in September 2023. We had to wait over three months, but the lineup finally reached its first international market – India.
Three phones were introduced on stage – Redmi Note 13, Redmi Note 13 Pro, and Redmi Note 13 Pro+. There is one change compared to the initial launch – they all ship with HyperOS straight out of the box.
The Redmi Note 13 Pro+ is the mightiest of all three and comes with a 200 MP camera, 120W charging for the 5,000 mAh battery and IP68 water and dust resistance. It will be sold in White, Black, and a colorful Purple variant.
Prices (including intial offers) are INR29,999 for 8/256 GB, INR31,999 for 12/256 GB, and IN33,999 for 12/512 GB.
Redmi Note 13 Pro also has a 200 MP camera, but its selling point was the Snapdragon 7s Gen 2 chipset, making it the first phone in India with that exact Qualcomm platform. Other impressive features are the 120 Hz screen with Gorilla Glass Victus protection on top and a fingerprint scanner underneath, and 67W fast charging.
The phone will arrive in three colors: Black, White, and Purple. Prices are INR23,999 for 8/128 GB, INR25,999 for 8/256 GB, and INR27,999 for 12/256 GB.
The Redmi Note 13 is said to be the thinnest phone from the Note lineup – just 7.6 mm, although we remember a Redmi Note 5A with the same profile that appeared in several South Asian markets over six years ago.
The phone has a 3.5 mm audio jack and an IR blaster, a Mediatek Dimensity 6080 chipset and IP54 protection, and a fancy Prism Gold color that the mightier siblings lack. Prices begin from INR16,999 for the 6/128 GB version, INR18,999 for the 8/256 GB option, and the 12/256 GB is INR20,999.
The first sale is scheduled for January 10 at Xiaomi online and retail stores. The Redmi Note 13 trio will also be available on Amazon.in.
