Redmi 13 Receives Certification with 5,000 mAh Battery: What to Expect

Xiaomi's Redmi brand is expanding its smartphone lineup with the introduction of the Redmi 13. This new model appears to be a more affordable option compared to the existing Redmi Note 13 series.

FCC Certification Reveals Key Specs:

The Redmi 13 recently received certification from the FCC, hinting at an imminent release. The certification process shed some light on the phone's core functionalities. Here's a breakdown of the revealed specifications:
  • Battery: The Redmi 13 will boast a long-lasting 5,000mAh battery, ideal for users who prioritize extended usage on a single charge. The certification lists a rated capacity of 4,930mAh, which should translate to a typical capacity of 5,000mAh in marketing materials.
  • Charging: The phone supports 33W fast charging, allowing you to power up your device quickly when needed.
  • Operating System: The Redmi 13 will run the latest Android 14 operating system with Xiaomi's custom interface, HyperOS 1.0.

While details beyond the aforementioned specs remain under wraps, the Redmi 13 is speculated to be the successor to the Redmi 12 launched in June 2023. The Redmi 12 offered a 6.79-inch 90Hz LCD display, MediaTek Helio G88 processor, various RAM and storage configurations, a triple-camera rear system with a 50MP main sensor, and an 8MP front-facing camera. It also came equipped with a 5,000mAh battery, but with slower 18W wired charging.

Global Launch:

The model number (24049RN28L) doesn't follow the usual regional indicators used by Xiaomi for China (C), global markets (G), or India (I). This suggests a potential global launch for the Redmi 13, although specific details are yet to be confirmed.

With the FCC certification out of the way, a formal announcement from Redmi regarding the Redmi 13 shouldn't be too far off. Stay tuned for further updates on the official launch date, pricing, and additional specifications.
