xiaomi Redmi 13C has been officially announced. And with this debut, it's pretty clear that Xiaomi will be introducing the Redmi 13 series in a bottom-up manner. That is, first, we will get to see the entry-level model, and then the brand will debut the high-end devices of the series.
Nonetheless, the Xiaomi Redmi 13C isn't a major upgrade to its predecessor, the Xiaomi 12C. But the changes that it brings surely make Xiaomi's current entry-level offering look better in the lineup. Among the improvements, the new phone brings better camera config, charging speed, connectivity, and screen.
Key Highlights of Redmi 13C
At the core, the Redmi 13C is pretty similar to the Poco C65 that Xiaomi released a couple of days ago. Like the C65 and the Redmi 12C, the new Redmi phone comes with a 12 nm Helio G85 chipset. But unlike the Poco C65, the 13C comes with 4 GB, 6 GB, and 8 GB of RAM. The Poco C65 is only available with 6 GB and 8 GB of RAM.
When it comes to storage, the Redmi 13C is available with 128 GB and 256 GB of eMMC 5.1 onboard storage. That's the same storage configuration as the Poco C65 but better than the Redmi 12C. Also, while the 12C came with an HD+ 60 Hz display, the 13C brings a 90 Hz panel. This will lead to smoother visuals on the screen.

Regarding the cameras, the Redmi 13C features a 50 MP primary shooter on the back. A 2 MP macro sensor accompanies this sensor, which is an improvement over the 0.08 MP depth sensor found in the 12C. On the front, the phone features an 8 MP selfie shooter.
Other than that, the Redmi 13C has a USB-C port, much like the Poco C65. To compare, the 12C came with a dated micro-USB port. Also, the 5000 mAh battery inside the phone can charge at 18 watts in wired mode, an improvement over the 10-watt charging capacity on the Redmi 12C.
As for the price, the Xiaomi Redmi 13C is currently on sale in Nigeria with a starting price of around US$122.
