Xiaomi Redmi Note 13 series is launching in India on January 4, 2024 and the company has confirmed the models that will be available in the market.

Redmi Note 13 models sport an AMOLED display with 120Hz refresh rate screen. The phones use a mix of Qualcomm and MediaTek Dimensity 5G chipsets, with up to 12GB RAM. It seems Xiaomi will offer the phones with the Android 13-based MIUI 14 version out of the box, which will be disappointing.

The biggest difference will be in the cameras, where the Redmi Note 13 Pro+ model highlights with a 200MP primary rear camera. The other two phones could feature a 100MP main rear camera. In addition to this, the Pro+ model could have a 5000mAh battery with support for 120W charging speed out of the box.

Vivo X100 Series


Vivo X100 series India launch is also confirmed for January 4, 2024. Vivo is hosting a virtual event for the launch of its new phones on Thursday next week, where we will get a closer look at the phones and their expected price tags.

The Vivo X100 and X100 Pro sport a 6.78-inch curved AMOLED display, boasting a 1.5K resolution with 120Hz refresh rate. Under the hood, both models are powered by MediaTek’s latest flagship Dimensity 9300 chipset, offering configurations with up to 16GB RAM and 1TB storage. Indian users will get the Funtouch OS version.
