Just a few hours ago, xiaomi launched a host of new devices. Among all, the main highlight of the launch event is the new Redmi Note 13 series. While we already had some information about the Note 13 Pro and Pro Plus prior to this launch event, Xiaomi has been silent about the base model.
But that doesn't mean that the Redmi Note 13 isn't a device you shouldn't look into. While it's a stripped-down version of the Pro models, it does offer a good amount of value. To be specific, it's a proper upgrade to the Note 12 device that Xiaomi launched last year.
Main Highlights of the Redmi Note 13
Among all, the display of the Redmi Note 13 has to be one of the biggest highlights. It is a 6.6-inch OLED panel with 120Hz refresh rate. What's more important is that the screen has narrow bezels, which is something we don't see in the lower mid-range devices.
In addition, the screen of the Note 13 features an FHD+ resolution, 1920Hz PWM dimming, and 1000 NITS of peak brightness. All these specs are impressive for a lower mid-range.
Under the hood, the Redmi Note 13 packs the MediaTek Dimensity 6080 processor. It's a good mid-range chipset that can easily handle most of the daily apps and moderately intensive games. Xiaomi has paired this chipset with up to 12GB of RAM and 256GB of storage.
