Xiaomi Redmi Note 13 pro @ 17390 has made its debut, alongside the Redmi Note 13, and Pro Plus in a recent launch in China. These devices hit the market with an aggressive pricing strategy, aiming to deliver top-notch features at an affordable cost. While we’ve already explored the Redmi Note 13 in a previous unboxing, this article will delve into the features and performance.
Snapdragon 7s Gen 2 Power
One of the standout features of the Redmi Note 13 Pro is its integration of the Snapdragon 7s Gen 2 chipset, setting it apart from the Pro Plus variant which opts for the Dimensity 7200 Ultra. This choice brings a unique flavor to the device, combining powerful performance with a budget-friendly price tag of under Rs. 20,000.
Design and Build Quality
AG Frosted Glass Back
The phone boasts an AG frosted glass back, providing a unique texture effect when held up to light. The camera setup at the back maintains a sleek profile with minimal bump.
Polycarbonate Frames and Dual Stereo Speakers
With polycarbonate frames, the Redmi Note 13 Pro offers durability. It features dual stereo speakers, providing an enhanced audio experience. The inclusion of a 3.5mm jack and an IR blaster adds to its versatility.
Under Display Fingerprint Scanner
A notable addition is the under-display fingerprint scanner, marking a departure from the side-mounted option seen in previous budget Redmi phones. The fingerprint scanner is not only efficient but also quick and responsive.
The device sports a 6.67-inch FHD+ AMOLED display with minimal bezels, offering an immersive visual experience. The display supports a 120Hz high refresh rate, ensuring smooth performance. Notably, the introduction of Gorilla Glass Victus protection adds a layer of durability to the screen, a feature uncommon in budget phones.
The Redmi Note 13 Pro is powered by the Snapdragon 7s Gen 2, boasting a prime core of Cortex A78 and Adreno 710 GPU. Despite a commendable Antutu score, the CPU throttle in the Chinese variant hints at potential optimizations for the Indian market.
Software and Battery
The device runs on Android 13 with MIUI 14, though it’s essential to note that this information is based on the Chinese variant. The battery, with a capacity of 5100 mAh, supports 67W charging, enabling a rapid charge time of just half an hour.
200MP Primary Sensor
The camera setup includes a remarkable 200MP primary sensor with OIS, allowing for high-quality video recording at 4k@30 fps. Additional features such as an 8MP ultrawide lens and a 2MP macro sensor provide versatility in photography.
On the front, a 16MP selfie camera offers decent video recording capabilities at 1080p@60 fps. The camera app incorporates night mode for selfies and various video recording options.
The Redmi Note 13 Pro enters the market with an aggressive pricing strategy in China, starting from 17,000 for the 8GB RAM and 128GB storage variant. The top-end model with 16GB RAM and 512GB storage is priced at 24,000, offering a compelling range of options for consumers.
In conclusion, the Redmi Note 13 Pro emerges as a promising contender, combining powerful hardware, a sleek design, and an attractive price point.
