Xiaomi has just announced the Redmi Note 13 series which is making its way to the Irish market, expanding its range with five new budget-friendly smartphone choices. Initially unveiled in September for the Chinese market and later rolled out in India, the Redmi Note 13 series will now be available to Irish users.

The line-up consists of five options: Redmi Note 13 Pro+ 5G, Redmi Note 13 Pro 5G, Redmi Note 13 Pro, Redmi Note 13 5G, and Redmi Note 13. Notably, there are three 5G models and two non-5G variants, offering consumers a variety of choices in a market segment where the impact of 5G connectivity on daily usage is still limited, potentially leading to compromises in other features.

Redmi Note 13 Pro+ 5G

The flagship model, the Redmi Note 13 Pro+ 5G, boasts an impressive set of features, including an IP68 rating, an in-display fingerprint reader, and a MediaTek Dimensity 7200 Ultra processor. The device features a 6.67″ 120Hz OLED display with a ‘1.5K’ 2712 x 1220 resolution and a peak brightness of 1800 nits.

Redmi Note 13 Pro 5G

The Redmi Note 13 Pro 5G, the next model in the series, features a Snapdragon 7s Gen 2 processor, a slightly larger 5,100mAh battery, and 67W charging. The display and main camera specifications appear to be similar to the flagship model.

The camera configuration seems consistent across models, but the display offers a regular FHD+ resolution with a peak brightness of 1300 nits.

Redmi Note 13 5G

The Redmi Note 13 5G, featuring a 6.67″ FHD+ OLED screen, Dimensity 6080 processor, 108MP main camera, 5000mAh battery, and 33W charging, provides a compelling option for users seeking a 5G-enabled device. The non-5G variant, the Redmi Note 13, appears visually similar but integrates a different Snapdragon 685 chip.
