Xiaomi Redmi Note 13 Pro Plus launches with hardware improvements while maintaining a mid-range price tag
Xiaomi has presented the Redmi Note 13 Pro Plus, the premier model in its new Redmi Note 13 series. Featuring plenty of changes from last year’s model, the Redmi Note 13 Pro Plus has a curved display, IP68 certification, and 120 W fast charging capabilities, all for CNY 1,899 (Rs. 18,499) in China.
Xiaomi has finally officially unveiled the Redmi Note 13 series, less than a year after introducing the initial Redmi Note 12 models. As expected, the Redmi Note 13 series starts life as Chinese exclusives. However, Xiaomi is likely to bring the likes of the Redmi Note 13 Pro Plus to market globally at the start of next year, albeit perhaps with slightly different specifications.
At any rate, the Redmi Note 13 Pro Plus utilizes the new Dimensity 7200 Ultra chipset, which Xiaomi claims MediaTek has optimized for the device’s Samsung ISOCELL HP3 Discovery Edition primary camera sensor. For reference, the latter maintains the same overall specifications as the regular ISOCELL HP3, such as a 200 MP native output, an f/1.65 aperture, and a 1/1.4-inch optical format.
Additionally, Xiaomi equips the Redmi Note 13 Pro Plus with a 6.67-inch AMOLED display that outputs at 2,712 x 1,220 pixels (1.5K) with 12-bit color depth, a 120 Hz refresh rate, and 100% DCI-P3 color space coverage. Moreover, Xiaomi underpins the large display with a 5,000 mAh battery that supports 120 W wired charging, as well as IP68 certification against dust and water ingress. Furthermore, Xiaomi intersects the device’s 6.67–inch display with an optical fingerprint scanner and a 16 MP front-facing camera, plus 8 MP ultra-wide-angle and 2 MP macro rear-facing lenses.
The Redmi Note 13 Pro Plus starts at CNY 1,899 (Rs. 18,499) with 12 GB of RAM and 256 GB of storage. Alternatively, Xiaomi sells the handset with 512 GB of storage in 12 GB and 16 GB of RAM combinations for CNY 2,099 (Rs. 24,199) and CNY 2,199 (Rs. 25,299), respectively. At launch, Xiaomi offers the Redmi Note 13 Pro Plus in Midnight dark, Mirror white, Light dream, and AAPE color options, all with the same underlying hardware.
Probable Xiaomi Redmi K70 Pro surfaces with Android 14, Snapdragon 8 Gen 3, and 16 GB of RAM
Xiaomi is preparing to unleash several smartphones in the next few days, some globally and some just for its home market. As we have discussed separately, the company will dedicate tomorrow to the Redmi Note 13 series, which is currently expected to arrive as the Redmi Note 13 5G, Redmi Note 13 Pro, and Redmi Note 13 Pro Plus. Although these devices are likely to be Chinese exclusives until early 2024, Xiaomi will also launch the Xiaomi 13T and Xiaomi 13T Pro next week globally, as well as the Xiaomi Watch 2 Pro.
Additionally, has discovered Geekbench listings for 23117RK66C, an unreleased Xiaomi smartphone that it intends to offer in China too. As usual, Geekbench has revealed the marketing name associated with the 23117RK66C. However, the 1+2+5 CPU core configuration matches earlier Snapdragon 8 Gen 3-related leaks.
Similarly, the pair of OpenCL results that have been posted so far mention the Adreno 750 GPU, emphasizing that Xiaomi is developing 23117RK66C with Qualcomm’s next flagship smartphone chipset. As the screenshots below show, Xiaomi pairs the unnamed chipset with 16 GB of RAM, an amount that will be available on the Redmi Note 13 Pro and Redmi Note 13 Pro Plus as well. Currently, Qualcomm is rumored to introduce the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 in October, a month earlier than usual.
Based on previous Xiaomi releases, it would seem that 23117RK66C is either a Xiaomi 14 or Redmi K70 series handset. Given that model numbers for the former are said to be 23127PN0CC and 23116PN5BC, 23117RK66C could belong to the Redmi K70 series instead. Typically, Xiaomi equips entry-level Redmi K models with last-generation chipsets, such as the Redmi K60, Redmi K50, and Redmi K40. Thus, GSMArena and MySmartPrice speculate that 23117RK66C will eventually launch as the Redmi K70 Pro.
