HIGHLIGHTS

  • Redmi Note 13 Pro+ is confirmed to feature IP68 dust and water resistance.
  • Here, we will discuss why Xiaomi offering IP68 on Redmi Note 13 Pro+ is important.
  • We will also take a look at other Redmi Note 13 Pro+ features we could expect.

Xiaomi India has been drip-feeding the Redmi Note 13 series features through X.com to generate buzz ahead of the January 4th launch event. The latest information it has divulged is that Redmi Note 13 Pro+ is IP68 certified for dust and water resistance. This should come as reassuring to its prospective buyers and is more important than you would give it credit for. Redmi Note 13 Pro+ IP68 certification: What it means

On the face of it, the IP68 rating certifies the Redmi Note 13 Pro+ to be water resistant up to a maximum depth of 1.5 metres for up to 30 minutes. The device will be resistant to dust particles too.

Based on its predecessor’s pricing, we think the Redmi Note 13 Pro+ could launch for around Rs 30,000 price or lower. Not many phones in this price range offer IP68 certification. So, Redmi offering this can encourage the broader market to also release IP68 midrange phones.

That said, you should note that even with this rating, water damage may not be covered in the warranty. The phone’s Chinese edition didn’t.

Well, since the phone has already launched in China a few months back, we know what to expect when it lands in India.

Redmi Note 13 Pro+ specifications (expected)

  • Display: Redmi Note 13 Pro+ could sport a 6.67-inch AMOLED display with 1.5K resolution, a 120Hz refresh rate, and Corning Gorilla Glass Victus protection.
  • Processor: Under the hood, you could expect the MediaTek Dimensity 7200 Ultra SoC.

  • Battery: A 5,000mAh battery with 120W fast charging support could keep the phone alive.

The company has so far confirmed details like a vegan leather finish, a 1.5K curved AMOLED display, MediaTek Dimensity 7200 Ultra chipset, and its 3 colours namely Fusion Purple, Fusion Black, and Fusion White. We also know it will be available on Amazon and Flipkart among other outlets.
