Every day, we learn about new features of the forthcoming Xiaomi Mi 13. Today was no exception. We wish this end soon because it seems phones from this series have so many advantages that they will last forever. Today, a Weibo leakster revealed the weights of the Xiaomi Mi 13 smartphones.
Xiaomi Mi 13 Design
According to him, the Mi 13 standard version will use a 6.36-inch 1080P+ resolution Samsung E6 straight screen. The glass version will come with dimensions of 152.8*71.5*7.98mm and a weight of about 189g, while the plain leather version will measure 152.8*71.5*8.1mm and weigh 185g.
In addition, the Mi 13 Pro will sport a 6.73-inch 2K resolution Samsung E6 curved screen, come in ceramic and plain leather versions with dimensions and weighs 163*74.6*8.38mm / 163*74.6*8.7mm and 229g / 210g, respectively.
By the way, apart from the glass and leather variants, there should also be a ceramic version. But they will be arranged in the following way: the standard version will be available in glass and leather versions, while the Pro model will come in ceramic and leather variants. In this regard, although ceramics provide excellent grip and texture, their weight is significantly higher than the other two types. For users who don’t care about weight, it is definitely the best choice. But if you care about weight, it is recommended to choose glass or plain leather versions.
Generally, the appearance of Mi 13 and 13 Pro has changed dramatically compared to the Mi 12 and 12S series, especially the camera module on the back.
The Mi 13/Pro series new product launch event was initially scheduled for December 1. But it was postponed due to unknown reasons. The rescheduled date is either 10 or 15. We will learn about it in the coming days.
Before this, Xiaomi promoted the phone, saying the standard edition comes with a straight screen, which is a custom-made high-end OLED display with four equilateral borders; the Mi 13 Pro has a hyperbolic screen. Regarding the frame around the screen, three sides have a width of 1.61mm and a width of 1.81mm at the widest point. In effect, the screen-to-body ratio reaches 93.3%.
Also, the official poster shows that the Mi 13 is 71.5mm wide and it uses a centered punch-hole screen. In addition, Lei Jun said that the front of the Mi 13 is slightly curved (2.5D), while the back has a four-curved surface. Thus, the phone’s squarish design shouldn’t make people scary. It will be very comfortable to hold.
Under the hood, these phones will host the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chip as standard. It is based on TSMC’s 4nm process. Thus, unlike the first-gen chip, it won’t have heating problems.
The Mi 13 series will have four storage options, starting with 8+128GB. The 128GB version will use UFS 3.1 storage technology, while the remaining three models use the 3.5GB/s UFS 4.0 flash storage.
As for the battery, the standard model will come with a 4500mAh battery with support for 67W wired fast charging, 50W wireless charging, and 10W reverse wireless charging.
Both Mi 13 and Mi 13 Pro will run the latest MIUI 14 system based on Android 13.
The Camera That Will Change The Mobile Imaging
Another selling point of the Pro variant will be the camera. Long ago, we learned that it would come with a 50-megapixel Sony IMX989 1-inch sensor and a 75mm Leica telephoto lens. Some rumors claim that the phone will feature a 50-megapixel Samsung JN1 sensor for its telephoto camera and a 50-megapixel Samsung JN1 sensor for its ultra-wide-angle lens.
The Mi 13 Standard Edition will feature a 50-megapixel primary camera, a 13-megapixel ultra-wide-angle camera, and a 10-megapixel telephoto camera. Both phones will have 32-megapixel front-facing cameras.
A New Linear Motor, Which Is Better Than iPhone
We guess you have been familiar with most of these features. Moreover, probably, you know that the series will offer up to 10 color variants, becoming the only flagship on the market with so many colorways. But did you know that the Xiaomi Mi 13 would come with the CyberEngine ultra-wideband linear motor?
This linear motor powered the Redmi K50 e-sports version for the first time. It is a product jointly created by Redmi and AAC Technologies.
Now, we learn that the Mi 13 will also use this ultra-wideband linear motor. What’s more interesting, this is the strongest motor in the history of Android. It belongs to the third-generation X-axis linear motors. “It surpasses all current Android models in the industry. It provides the only vibration experience comparable to the iPhone right now.”
It has the characteristics of ultra-broadband, ultra-strong vibration, ultra-power saving, ultra-quiet, and ultra-comfortable. The effective bandwidth is 50Hz~500Hz, and the maximum vibration is as high as 1.1Grms, equivalent to 1.88Grms of the conventional X-axis linear motor. This is 3x higher than the original X-axis motor.
Moreover, on the basis of the second generation, it changes the surrounding magnets into two integrated multi-pole magnets to form a structure similar to a track. The continuous multi-pole magnets constrain the movement in the track and generate continuous force. The magnet is closer to the coil. As a result, the power is greater with the same volume, and the volume has reached an astonishing 560 cubic millimeters, which restores the real touch.
