Apart from the Redmi label, Xiaomi's affordable semi-flagships are marketed under the "T" label. We expect the Xiaomi 13T and the Xiaomi 13T Pro to be released soon, with the official release date in China being September 1—at least according to a tipster from Germany. The price and initial technical specifications are already available.

Xiaomi 13T and Xiaomi 13 T Pro: The inexpensive flagships are coming!
Those who do not want to shell out their life savings for a smartphone, will patiently wait for the T series. The next generation has been announced in the form of the Xiaomi 13T and Xiaomi 13T Pro, according to tipster SnoopyTech who tends to specialize in Motorola news. To be more precise, we are looking at Friday, September 1, 2023, as the official release date in its home country of China.
It remains unclear from the Twitter post whether it will be a global event, because the prices of the two semi-flagships for the UK were already revealed. They are supposed to cost £599 for the Xiaomi 13T and £799 for the Xiaomi 13T Pro. Notice there is no pricing for a Stateside release since it will not be officially introduced in that part of the world.
