After much speculation and rumors, the Redmi 13C series has finally been unveiled in India. Looking at the specs sheet, the Redmi 13 5G is something! Let’s take a detailed look at the Redmi 13C 5G in this article, along with its specifications, expected price in Nepal, and more!

Redmi 13C India Overview

“Dimensity 6100+” and performance

The Redmi 13C ships with the MediaTek Dimensity 6100+ chipset in it. This is an octa-core 5G silicon based on a 6nm process. It comprises two Arm Cortex-A76 clocking in at a peak of 2.2 GHz alongside six Arm Cortex-A55 at a maximum of 2.0 GHz. The Dimensity 6100+ is a mid-range chipset which is very surprising given that it is being featured in the Redmi 13C 5G — a budget phone.

Furthermore, the Redmi 13C 5G comes in three configurations, namely 4 GB + 128 GB, 6 GB + 128 GB, and 8 GB + 256 GB. Redmi has given us an option to virtually extend the memory by an additional 8 GB in the 13C. Similarly, we also get to expand the storage to 1 TB via a MicroSD card. On the software front, Redmi 13C ships with MIUI 14 based on Android 13 instead of Xiaomi’s homegrown HyperOS.

Design and Display

In terms of design, the Redmi 13C 5G retains a similar design to its leaked renders. The phone has two camera bumps vertically stacked on top of each other on the back. Additionally, it features a lot of diagonal patterns on the back and weighs 192 grams. Lastly, the Redmi 13C 5G is available in three color options: Starlight Black, Startrail Green, and Startrail Silver.

Camera and the rest

The Redmi 13C 5G features a dual camera in the back. The rear camera consists of a 50MP primary shooter and an unspecified auxiliary unit — probably a depth sensor. In the meantime, the front-facing camera is a 5MP shooter featured with a waterdrop camera cutout.
