What to Expect from the Redmi Note 13 Series

The Redmi Note 13 5G, codenamed “gold” with model number N17, is likely to be a global 5G smartphone.

Xiaomi might introduce a single device, codenamed “zircon” with model number N16U, featuring a remarkable Samsung ISOCELL HP3 200MP main camera sensor. This impressive camera setup would also include an 8MP ultra-wide and a 2MP macro sensor.

For selfies, expect a 16MP front camera. The phone would likely be powered by a midrange MediaTek Dimensity SoC. Xiaomi may release the Redmi Note 13 Pro, and possibly the Redmi Note 13 Pro Plus models in several markets outside China.
