Unless something unexpected happens, Xiaomi will start promoting the next-generation flagship phone in the form of the Xiaomi 13 Ultra this week. So we guess that the phone will be released in the middle of this month.
As tipster @Yogesh Brar reported, the phone will sport the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 flagship chip and feature a 6.7-inch Samsung AMOLED LTPO E6 display with QHD+ resolution and 120Hz refresh rate.
In addition, the device should come with four cameras on the back, including a 50MP main sensor, which should be a 1-inch Sony IMX989 sensor, a 50MP ultra-wide-angle lens, and two 50MP telephoto lenses. Interestingly, this device should have a 32MP selfie shooter on the front. Of course, this camera phone will continue to use Leica Imaging Systems.
In other aspects, the device will offer 12/16GB of RAM and 256/512GB of storage space. But there might not be a 1TB version. It runs the Android 13-based MIUI 14 system and is expected to be equipped with a 4900mAh battery that supports 90W fast charging and 50W wireless charging.
This year, the new generation of Xiaomi 13 Ultra flagship phones should not be exclusive to the Chinese market. As Lei Jun has previously stated, this handset will also enter the global market. OK, he didn’t mention the 13 Ultra, but said the follow-up model to the Xiaomi 12S Ultra. So there is every reason to believe that he meant this handset.
Earlier, TechGoing showed the protective case of the phone. From the photo, we learned that the device would have a huge circular camera module. The overall design style has a lot in common with the Xiaomi 12S Ultra. We mean, on the camera module, there will be many holes.
