Xiaomi is set to launch the Redmi Note 13 series in China on Thursday with at least three launches. In addition to the Note 13 and Note 13 Pro, a Note 13 Pro+ is also expected, as was the case last year. The mid-range model’s chipset has now come to light through a new Geekbench test. Accordingly, the Note 13 Pro will be powered by the upcoming Snapdragon 7s Gen 2.
Otherwise, according to the listing, the Xiaomi phone (Xiaomi 2312CRAD3C) will have up to 16GB of RAM and will run Android 13, presumably with MIUI 14 as the interface. Xiaomi has also confirmed that the Redmi Note 13 Pro+ will be launched with the Dimensity 7200 Ultra chipset. The only thing missing is the entry-level cell phone chipset.
Redmi Note 13 Pro with the new Snapdragon 7s Gen 2 processor
Qualcomm’s latest mid-range chipset was announced over the weekend. The 7’s CPU is less powerful than any other Snapdragon 7 series chipset. The image processor isn’t quite as convincing either. The name also seems a bit confusing since there is neither the first generation 7s nor the second generation Snapdragon 7.
The Qualcomm Snapdragon 7s Gen 2 is manufactured using a 4nm process. It has an octa-core CPU with four performance cores clocked at 2.4GHz and four additional efficiency cores clocked at 1.9GHz. In terms of connectivity, the slower FastConnect 6700 platform is a step behind the 7+ Gen 2 with its FastConnect 6900 chip. Accordingly, the maximum download speed is only 2.9 Gbps.
Qualcomm has not revealed what Adreno GPU is on board. However, it should support FHD+ resolution at 144Hz. Bluetooth 5.2 with Low Energy Audio, USB-C 3.1, and Quick Charge 4+ are also available. Spectra ISP supports single cameras with up to 200MP resolution and 4K video recording at 30fps. When it comes to memory, the max is LPDDR5 at 3200MHz. Qualcomm has not yet provided an official timeframe for the arrival of the first devices equipped with the new chipset.
