Despite looking similar to the V11, the V13 gets a better display–specifically a Full HD+ panel with a 90hz refresh rate and a 180hz touch response rate. The V13 also gets a higher-resolution 48-megapixel main rear camera and an additional 2-megapixel mono sensor. You also get double the RAM at 8GB, along with up to 256GB of expandable storage
Just like the V11, the V13 rocks a Dimensity 700 processor and has a 5000mAh battery that charges via 18w USB-C. Other features include an 8-megapixel selfie snapper, side-mounted fingerprint scanner, a headphone jack, and dual 5G over SA/NSA networks.
realme V13 5G Price
With the first sales commencing in China on April 2, the V13 5G will retail for CNY 1599(~Php 11.9k) for the 128GB variant and CNY 1799(~Php 13.4k) for the 256GB variant. The Php 3k premium it commands over the realme V11 is not bad, as you are getting double the RAM, a significantly better display, and a higher-resolution main rear camera.
realme has yet decided to bring its affordable V-series 5G phones outside of China, so we will have to wait and see if the brand will compete in the budget 5G segment globally. As of this writing, realme has the flagship X50 Pro for its global 5G offering, while the realme 7 5G is exclusive to Europe.
