The Redmi Note 13 Pro Plus will spearhead the Redmi Note 13 series with a MediaTek Dimensity 7200 Ultra SoC.
Honestly, when I was writing this script for the Redmi Note 13 Pro Plus, I often thought of a phone we’ve reviewed before: the realme 11 Pro+.

That Realme 11 Pro+ is no longer in our hands, but the tested data is still there. So can the Note 13 Pro+ beat this phone released four months ago? let’s check it out.
The Redmi Note 13 series has entered the final days of pre-launch teasers.
