Xiaomi is kickstarting the year with the expansion of their Redmi line, launching the Note 13 series. 

The new series features a new line of smartphones including the Redmi Note 13, the Note 13 5G, the Note 13 Pro, the Note 13 Pro 5G, and the Note 13 Pro+ 5G.

Each model features an AMOLED display, a high megapixel camera with incredible zoom capabilities, long battery life, and a fast charging processor all encased in Xiaomi’s sleek design.

The Redmi Note Series 13 was unveiled at a global launch event in Bangkok earlier this week, which saw the attendance of Xiaomi’s brand ambassadors including Thai K-pop star BamBam and Filipino actress and content creator Gabbi Garcia.

“The best companion when it comes to content creation is your smartphone and your smartphone has to have the best camera. And so far, I’ve been loving the camera of the Redmi Note Series 13,” says Garcia. 

“We tried [the phone] earlier when we toured around Bangkok and it really is beautiful. The camera has 200 megapixels and the AMOLED [display] is also beautiful because even in the dark or bright settings, you can still see the screen,” she adds.

On top of Xiaomi’s new line of smartphones, the event also saw the launch of the Redmi Watch 4, Redmi Buds 5, and Redmi Buds 5 Pro. 

The latter two comes as the latest addition to the brand’s high quality earbuds, which boasts exceptional performance, long-battery life, seamless connectivity, and impressive features — which BamBam shares is vital when it comes to music.

“Music is the thing that’s always been a part of me since I was a young. I always say that even if I [wasn’t] a K-pop artist right now, I would still stick to music — I need music in my life, I love how music can take me from nothing to something,” he says in an interview with international media.

Much like Xiaomi, BamBam is charging into the new year with big plans. “I’m happy with what I’m doing right now. I have new goals for the future. This year is a big year for me because, besides the world tour, I have a lot to show to everyone that I can’t say right now,” the rapper teases.
