Xiaomi is all set to launch its Redmi Note 13 series in China on Thursday with at least three members. In addition to the Note 13 and the Note 13 Pro, a Note 13 Pro+ is also expected, as was the case last year with the Redmi Note 12, Note 12 Pro und Note 12 Pro+. The mid-range model’s chipset has now come to light through a new Geekbench test. Accordingly, the Note 13 Pro will be powered by the upcoming Snapdragon 7s Gen 2.
Otherwise, according to the listing, the Xiaomi smartphone (Xiaomi 2312CRAD3C) will have up to 16 GB of RAM and will run Android 13, presumably with MIUI 14 as the interface. Xiaomi also confirmed that the Redmi Note 13 Pro+ will launch with the Dimensity 7200 Ultra chipset. The only thing missing is the chipset of the entry-level smartphone.
Redmi Note 13 Pro with new Snapdragon 7s Gen 2
Qualcomm’s latest mid-range chipset was announced over the weekend. The 7s’ CPU is less powerful than any other Snapdragon 7-series chips. And the image processor isn’t entirely convincing either. The name also sounds a bit confusing since there was neither a first-generation 7s nor a second-generation Snapdragon 7.
The Qualcomm Snapdragon 7s Gen 2 is manufactured using a 4nm process. It has an eight-core CPU with four 2.4 GHz performance cores and four additional efficiency cores that hum at 1.9 GHz. In terms of connectivity, the slower FastConnect 6700 platform is a step behind the 7+ Gen 2 with its FastConnect 6900 chip. Accordingly, the maximum download speed is only 2.9 Gbps.
Qualcomm does not reveal which Adreno GPU is on board. However, it should support an FHD+ resolution at 144 Hz. Bluetooth 5.2 with low-energy audio, USB-C 3.1 and Quick Charge 4+ are also on board. The Spectra ISP supports single cameras with resolutions up to 200 megapixels and 4K video recording at 30 fps. When it comes to memory, the maximum is LPDDR5 with 3,200 MHz. Qualcomm has not yet given an official time frame in which the first devices with the new chipset will arrive.
