Quick Comparison between Redmi K70 Pro and Xiaomi 13 Pro

Alongside the realme GT5 Pro, the Xiaomi 13 Pro, imported models, is also a formidable competitor to the Redmi K70 Pro. Despite being introduced over a year ago, the device retains many valuable features such as the display, fast charging, and especially the camera. So, in the 12 million VND price segment, which is the more worthwhile purchase between the Redmi K70 Pro and Xiaomi 13 Pro?

Water resistance ratingIP68X

In terms of design, the biggest advantage of the Xiaomi 13 Pro over its competitor is perhaps the IP68 water resistance rating. However, many users may be willing to trade this standard for a device with better ergonomics and usability.

The Xiaomi 13 Pro also features a curved screen similar to the realme GT5 Pro. However, the curvature of both the screen and the back reduces the contact area of the frame significantly. Combined with a weight of nearly 230 grams, the Xiaomi 13 Pro may feel quite heavy during prolonged use.

In contrast, the display on the Redmi K70 Pro is flat. The increased frame area makes the user experience more comfortable and pleasant. Additionally, the back of the device is etched with a stone-like pattern, accompanied by a distinctive “induction cooker” camera module. Compared to the Xiaomi 13 Pro, the back of the Redmi K70 Pro stands out more.


The standard version of the Redmi K70 Pro comes with a minimum of 12GB RAM and 256GB internal storage, double that of the Xiaomi 13 Pro. The Redmi K70 Pro also comes with HyperOS 1.0, while the Xiaomi 13 Pro has to wait for an update.

In reality, it is challenging to discern the difference between the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 on the Redmi K70 Pro and the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 on the Xiaomi 13 Pro. For everyday tasks, both devices perform similarly. When playing games, the Xiaomi 13 Pro tends to heat up faster and offers lower smoothness, but the difference is not significant.

Brighter Screen

On paper, the Redmi K70 Pro’s display has a brightness of up to 4,000 nits, twice that of its competitor. However, it’s important to note that this is the peak brightness, which applies only to certain areas of the screen. In outdoor testing, the Redmi K70 Pro is brighter, but the difference is not significant. Xiaomi 13 Pro’s 1,900 nits also perform exceptionally well. Indoors, with automatic brightness turned off, both devices have equally bright displays.

In terms of display quality, both are nearly equivalent in terms of color reproduction, detail, and viewing angles. With a curved screen, the Xiaomi 13 Pro provides a visually appealing and vibrant effect. In contrast, the Redmi K70 Pro has thinner and more uniform bezels, significantly less bulky than its competitor.

Advantages of the Xiaomi 13 Pro


When considering the same new product segment with the original seal, the Xiaomi 13 Pro is currently priced more than 1 million VND higher than its competitor. However, users can save a lot of money by purchasing used models.

Based on online marketplaces, the used Xiaomi 13 Pro is being sold for prices ranging from $350 to $400. Compared to the new Redmi K70 Pro, users can save $100. Of course, most of these products come with a charger or accessory box. The Xiaomi 13 Pro, even after a year, still maintains a very good appearance and is practically free from refurbishment or repairs.


The camera is the most outstanding factor on the Xiaomi 13 Pro. With a sensor size of up to 1 inch, the device demonstrates excellent low-light performance, especially during nighttime conditions. Additionally, in collaboration with LEICA, photos taken with the Xiaomi 13 Pro have a distinct and unique color profile compared to other flagship models on the market.

Certainly, it cannot be said that the camera quality on the Redmi K70 Pro is poor. Compared to its predecessor, the device has been equipped with an additional telephoto camera. The main camera on the Redmi K70 Pro also supports video recording with a maximum resolution of up to 8K at 24fps.

Battery and Charging

The battery capacity and charging power between the Xiaomi 13 Pro and Redmi K70 Pro do not differ significantly. However, the Xiaomi 13 Pro supports 50W wireless charging as well as 10W reverse wireless charging. This is particularly useful when users need to charge smartwatches or wireless headphones directly if necessary.

After nearly a year of use, the Xiaomi 13 Pro still delivers good battery life. On workdays with minimal use of 4G or high brightness, the device can easily last until the evening with around 7 hours of screen-on time. When constantly using mobile data while out and about, continuous usage is around 5 hours. Nevertheless, rapid charging with the 120W charger allows for quick recharging to last throughout the day.

Both the Redmi K70 Pro and Xiaomi 13 Pro have their own advantages. However, it is important to note that the difference between the two is not significant. The Xiaomi 13 Pro currently offers a very competitive price, making it arguably the most worthwhile purchase in its price segment. Meanwhile, the drawbacks from the predecessor, such as camera quality and plastic frame, have been addressed in the Redmi K70 Pro.
