ADVERTORIAL: The story so far: Redmi Note 13 Series in South Africa


A lot has happened with the latest Redmi launch locally. Here’s your catchup.

One of the most exciting device launches for 2024 has already happened in South Africa when the Redmi Note 13 arrived on 10th April. The Redmi Note 13, Redmi Note 13 Pro, and the Redmi Note 13 Pro+ 5G have been making the news daily as content creators, outlets, reviewers, and everyday people have been getting their hands on these devices.

But we understand: the news cycle happens so fast that it’s hard to keep up. If you have yet to hear about the Redmi Note 13 Series or you want a refresher on what these great phones offer, we have you covered

What is the Redmi Note 13 Series?

The Redmi Note 13 Series is a trio of new phones from Redmi that get their Note name from the larger-than-you-‘d-expect screen.

All three phones have a huge 6.67-inch AMOLED display that needs to be seen to be believed. AMOLED gives you almost perfect colour reproduction and the deepest blacks, all while combining it with a super high 120Hz screen and similarly high resolutions across the range. This makes them perfect not only for movies, TV, and other streaming but also for gaming.


 These screens don’t stop their feature list there as you can also find an in-screen fingerprint sensor, ultra-thin bezels, and high brightness. It’s all crowned by an in-screen 16MP front-facing camera for those selfies, video calls, content creation and just about anything else.

 And don’t forget the dual speakers, Dolby Vision Atmos and Hi-Res Audio for the best possible on-the-go entertainment experience.

 A large 5,000 mAh battery powers this list of features, enough to get you through even the most demanding days.

 All of this technology is wrapped up in a Midnight Black colour option or, as we’ll get to soon, other exciting colours depending on the model.


What are the differences?

 We just covered what these devices share, but now let’s look at each individually to see some unique features the three options can offer you.
