The Redmi 13R 5G has a Dimensity 6100+ chipset and a single memory configuration – 4 GB RAM and 128 GB storage. It is a dual-5G handset with room for two SIM cards and one microSD card in a long tray.

It also has a big 5,000 mAh battery with 18W charging support, but Xiaomi is providing only a 10W adapter in the box.

The one and only difference between Redmi 13C 5G and Redmi 13R 5G is the design around the camera – the Chinese version has a big black rectangle spanning from one side to the other.

The colors are still Black, Green, and Purple, but while they are branded as “Star Trail” internationally, at home, they are just “three dreamy colors”.

The price of Redmi 13R 5G is CNY 999, which is equal to $140/€130. Registrations are open on the company website. You can sign up to receive a notification when pre-orders open to ensure they'll be among the first to actually purchase the device.

The camera bump is similar with poco M series. The international version should be poco M6 series.

Unfortunately the Chinese manufacturers get carte blanche to make their UI a bloated mess, and iOS clones Meanwhile Samsung who's been focusing on optimization, gets bashed for not having fancy animations

The cars do get names tho. Ferrari in particular is a mess, we never know what they're calling the car next year, unlike other teams that maintain a consistent lineage: since 2009 they went like this: F60 F10 F-150 Italia F2012 ...
