Starting with the Pro phones, all three Redmi Note 13 Pro series handsets bring the same triple rear camera system (200MP+8MP+2MP), the same 16MP selfie camera in a punch-hole cutout, in-display fingerprint sensors, and 6.67-inch 120Hz OLED screens.

The Redmi Note 13 Pro Plus is the star of the show, though. Its standout feature is the IP68 rating, while the rest of the Redmi Note 13 family only offers an IP54 rating.

Other notable Pro Plus features include a Dimensity 7200-Ultra chipset, a 5,000mAh battery with 120W wired charging, Bluetooth 5.3, and Wi-Fi 6.
