The Chinese tech giant isn’t offering any LTE only smartphone under the Note 13 series. However, a new leak by tipster Kacper Skrzypek reveals that Xiaomi will offer a Redmi Note 13 4G in some global markets.

Kacper also claimed that the Redmi Note 13 (4G variant) for the global markets will feature the same processor as its predecessor. To those unaware, the Redmi Note 12 (4G variant) sports a Qualcomm Snapdragon 685 processor under the hood. The tipster has also hinted that the Redmi Note 13 4G, powered by Snapdragon 685, may not launch in the Indian marekt. Take a look at the details.

Kacper claims that the Redmi Note 13 (4G variant) will be a global only model and will be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 685 processor.
