What is similar and different

The Redmi Note line, as always, offers a complete set: power adapters, USB cables, SIM tray keys, and bonus cases. And this time, each phone comes with a matte soft-touch case, which is of good quality and pleasant to the touch. Each smartphone also comes with a protective film.

Each phone has an in-screen fingerprint scanner that can even measure heart rate. There’s also NFC for contactless payments and an infrared port for controlling household appliances. However, only the older Note 13 Pro 5G and Pro+ 5G models have eSIM.

Design

The first four models also have a strict design, which is typical for the Redmi Note series: straight lines, a flat screen and smooth surfaces – nothing superfluous. The edges are slightly beveled at the back and front, which makes the design ergonomic. Although the cases are made of plastic, all smartphones have a premium look and are presented in different colors.

The flagship smartphone Redmi Note 13 Pro+ 5G stands out from the crowd, as it has the most attractive design. The screen is slightly curved at the edges, and the back panel is slightly curved and seems to be divided into parts by delicate shades.
