Xiaomi launches Redmi 13R 5G, a rebadged Redmi 13C 5G

Xiaomi launched a new 5G smartphone in the Philippines, the Redmi 13R 5G. The device is a rebadged version of the Redmi 13C 5G, released in China this month. The Redmi 13R 5G has similar specs and a slightly different design than the Redmi 13C 5G.

The Redmi 13R 5G features a 6.74-inch FHD+ IPS display with a 90Hz refresh rate and a punch-hole cutout for the selfie camera. Under the hood, the MediaTek Dimensity 6100+ chipset powered the phone with 4GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. It also runs on MIUI 14, based on Android 14.

The Redmi 13R 5G has dual cameras on the back, consisting of a 50MP main camera and an unnamed secondary camera. The main camera supports 1080p at 30fps video recording, night mode, and AI scene detection. The secondary camera is likely a depth sensor or a macro lens. The phone also has a modest 5MP selfie camera on the front.

As for the battery, the Redmi 13R 5G comes with a 5000mAh capacity with 18W fast charging support. However, it is only packaged with a 10W charger, meaning users must buy a separate fast charger to enjoy the full charging speed. The phone also has a side-mounted fingerprint scanner, a 3.5mm headphone jack, and an IR blaster.

In China, the Redmi 13R 5G is priced at CNY 999 (roughly ₱7,700 / $140) and will compete in a crowded budget space against other compelling handsets from popular brands such as Samsung, vivo, realme, and OPPO. There’s no news yet of availability in other regions.
