The design of this device is inspired by Samsung phones. It has a flat frame and vertically aligned separate camera modules.

Despite being a budget smartphone, it features a glass back, like the Redmi 12 and Redmi 13C lineups. In addition to a 3.5m  headphone jack, it also has a MicroSD card slot and a side-mounted fingerprint sensor.

The front of the handset is dominated by a 6.78-inch punch-hole display. This LCD panel offers a resolution of 2460 x 1080 pixels, 396 PPI, and up to a 120Hz refresh rate.

The phone is powered by a MediaTek Dimensity 6080 chip paired with 8GB RAM and 128GB storage. It boots Android 13 and is guaranteed to receive Android 14 as well as 2 years of security updates.

It has two useful cameras on the rear — a 50MP primary sensor and an 8MP ultrawide unit. On the front, there’s a 16MP shooter.

Connectivity options include dual SIM, 5G, dual-band WiFi, Bluetooth 5.0, GNSS, and USB Type-C. The product measures 8.96mm in thickness and weighs 214g.

Last but not least, the device is backed by a 5,000mAh battery with support for 33W charging.
