It seems that Xiaomi will launch the Redmi 13 series from the bottom up. The first model officially hit global markets today – the Xiaomi Redmi 13C is the first member of the series. On the one hand, it is likely to remain one of the cheapest models and on the other hand, the market launch took place in Nigeria, Africa. Since the Xiaomi smartphone can already be found on Amazon, it will soon be launched in other countries, too.
The Xiaomi Redmi 13C looks quite similar to the Poco C65, but has a few differences. This includes the faster and more modern MediaTek Helio G99 chipset, which is manufactured using a 9nm process. There are also 4 GB, 6 GB or 8 GB of RAM and either 128 GB or 256 GB of storage. The LCD display is 6.74 inches in size and has a maximum refresh rate of 90 Hz.
There is also a 5 megapixel front camera in the display of the Redmi 13C. On the back, however, the main camera has a resolution of 50 megapixels with an f/1.8 aperture. It also has access to a 2 megapixel depth sensor, but there are no more cameras on board. The 5,000 mAh battery charges with a maximum of 18 watts. At least with the Poco C65, only a 10 watt charger was included in the scope of delivery.
The Xiaomi Redmi 13C is reportedly available in Black and Clover Green colors in Nigeria. The basic 4/128GB version costs NGN 98,100 (€114/$122), while the 8/256GB variant costs NGN 108,100 (€125/$135).
