Recently, a Weibo tipster said that the battery capacity of the Xiaomi Mi 13 is 4500mAh, and it supports 67W wired flash charging and 50W wireless flash charging. Much earlier, Xiaomi released the Mi 13 battery life DOU test. (If the number exceeds 1, it means that it can be used generally for 1 day.) From the chart, we can see that the DOU score of the Mi 13 has reached 1.37, which is stronger than the battery life of the Apple iPhone 14 Pro Max.
Battery life: Xiaomi Mi 13 beats iPhone 14 Pro Max
Besides this, the same blogger said that the Xiaomi Mi 13 would also come with its self-developed chip, Surge G1. It is a battery management chip that borrows from the BMS (Battery Management System), one of the core technologies of electric vehicles. It can operate within milliseconds at a level of real-time monitoring and provide battery safety. As a result, the chip can achieve the industry’s most accurate battery life forecast and effectively improve the phone’s battery life.
Precisely, the Surge G1 can monitor the slight change in the internal material of the phone battery caused by falling, collision, etc. Plus, it can dynamically analyze the reasonable temperature range of the battery under charging, heavy load, and other scenarios according to the temperature rise model (SOA). According to the health of the battery cells, it can provide battery maintenance functions to prolong endurance.
All the mentioned advantages make the Xiaomi Mi 13 have the best battery management system. At the same time, the Mi 13 will have the longest battery life in Xiaomi’s history.
Design: Xiaomi Mi 13 looks more stylish than iPhone 14
Another section where the Xiaomi Mi 13 beats the iPhone is the appearance. The right angles of the phone are incredibly narrow and quadrilateral. The phone uses a punch-hole screen design and has a super high screen-to-body ratio. Though the Xiaomi Mi 13 standard edition looks identical to the iPhone 14, it is more stylish.
The phone will use a custom-made high-end OLED straight screen. Three borders are 1.61mm, while the chin is only 1.81mm. In effect, its screen-to-body ratio is as high as 93.3%. As a reference, the iPhone 14 has four equilateral sides of 2.4mm, while the iPhone 14 Pro is 2.15mm wide.
In addition, the width of Mi 13 is only 71.5mm. But if a phone is too flat, it will not be comfortable to hold. So the company has decided to make it slightly curved at 2.5D.
As we know, the Xiaomi MI 13 is one of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 starters. According to GSMArena, the Xiaomi Mi 13 and the Mi 13 Pro will provide four combinations of 8GB+128GB, 8GB+256GB, 12GB+256GB, and 12GB+512GB. Among them, the basic model will provide UFS 3.1 storage standard, while the Pro version will use UFS 4.0 storage and LPDDR5X memory.
In terms of imaging, the Mi 13 will have a 54MP AI triple camera at the rear. Besides the 54MP primary camera, there will also be a 12MP super wide-angle lens and a 10MP telephoto lens. As for the Pro version, it will come with a 50MP Sony IMX989 one-inch sensor, a 50MP ultra-wide-angle lens, and a 50MP telephoto lens. They will have a Leica blessing and support HyperOIS, super optical image stabilization.
In addition, the new Mi 13 series will run on the MIUI 14 system based on Android 13.
This generation has a huge upgrade, and the price should also rise. The starting price is expected to be around 4,500 yuan ($641).
