·        Redmi 13C 5G details revealed so far

  • Redmi 13C 5G will be the first 5G phone from Redmi’s C series. It will be powered by a MediaTek Dimensity 6100+ SoC. This is a 6nm-class chip with 2x Arm Cortex-A76 performance cores clocked at up to 2.2GHz and 6x Arm Cortex-A55 efficiency cores running at up to 2.0GHz frequency. The CPU is coupled with Arm Mali-G57 MC2 GPU and HyperEngine 3.0 Lite gaming engine. We have seen this chip inside Realme 11, Realme 11x, and Realme Narzo 60X.

The Redmi 13C 4G variant will be running on a different chip. While Redmi India hasn’t posted anything about that yet, we know they will have minor differences in design from the official images. The Redmi 13C 4G’s rear camera lenses sit on a rectangular island whereas the 5G ones don’t. Even the position of the flashlight lens and the “50MP AI Cam” inscription are slightly different. On the Amazon microsite, we see Redmi 13C 5G in Black and Lavender colours while the 4G model appears in Green and Black. This phone was launched in Nigeria earlier this month in these same colours. So, if Xiaomi launches the same device, here’s what we could expect:
