With significant upgrades to camera system, design, display and processor, Redmi Note 13 Series continues to close the gap between mid-range and flagship-level smartphones, delivering all-star durability, fantastic experience and impressive imaging capability - all at reasonable prices.

Make every shot iconic with Redmi Note 13 Series' upgraded camera system

Engineered to meet diverse photography needs, Redmi Note 13 Series boasts a versatile, upgraded camera system. The pro model, Redmi Note 13 Pro+ 5G and Redmi Note 13 Pro, all feature an ultra-high resolution 200MP camera with optical image stabilization (OIS) to capture photographs with unprecedented levels of detail and bring a flagship-level photography experience to users.

Moreover, 2x/4x lossless zoom offers detailed close-ups from a distance and brings the possibility of focusing on individuals in crowds or zooming in on the action.

Meanwhile, the base model, Redmi Note 13, is equipped with a 108MP main camera with 3x lossless zoom to deliver incredible images with finer details. Both smartphones also come with a wide selection of filmCamera filters for users to customize their photos.

With a triple camera setup comprising a 200MP or 108MP main camera, an 8MP ultra-wide camera and a 2MP macro camera, and a 16MP selfie camera, all these devices are supported by Xiaomi Imaging Engine. Overall, each device provides next-generation computational photography and powerful image processing, making the Redmi Note 13 Series a great option for capturing iconic images at any opportunity.

Superb clarity, AMOLED display and up to 120Hz refresh rate 

Redmi Note 13 Series features trendy, sleek design with ultra-slim bezels for premium look and feel, and a high-quality display for an enhanced user experience and immersive viewing.

Redmi Note 13 Pro+ 5G offer a crystal-clear viewing with a 1.5K AMOLED display and 1800 nits peak brightness. Meanwhile, Redmi Note 13 Pro and Redmi Note 13 feature a super-clear FHD+ AMOLED display.

Silky smooth scrolling without lag is ensured on each Redmi Note 13 Series device, thanks to 120Hz AdaptiveSync refresh rate, making all viewing experiences smoother, clearer, and more enjoyable.

Other upgrades include the series' first addition of a convenient in-screen fingerprint sensor1.

Exceptional durability to set your mind at ease

These advanced camera systems are supported by a large 1/1.4" sensor and improved image processing, ensuring astounding image quality even in complex and low light conditions. The combination of this sensor, a super-large f/1.65 aperture, and Tetra2 pixel (advanced pixel-binning technology) delivers clear and bright pictures even in poor lighting conditions, while the 7P lens with Atomic Layer Deposition (ALD) reduces flare and ghosting.

With upgrades in engineering and design, Redmi Note 13 Series offers durability and toughness for added reassurance in difficult conditions. This begins from the display, which introduces Corning® Gorilla® Glass Victus® to Redmi Note 13 Pro+ 5G —another series first—for added resistance to accidental drops and scratches. The display has also been further optimized across the series to ensure it is responsive and accurate to touch input, even in the rain.

With an upgraded structure combined with an IP68 dust and water resistance certification2, Redmi Note 13 Pro+ 5G secures its position as the star model of the series, while the other models have also all been elevated to offer IP54 dust and splash resistance3.
