Launched in China in December, the Xiaomi 13 Pro will take the next step towards a global launch on February 26th. The info comes from the Indian branch of Xiaomi. This announced today that the 13 Pro will start its world tour on February 26th at the Mobile World Congress (MWC). The event will be live streamed on Xiaomi’s official website and social media.

The press release doesn’t mention the Xiaomi 13, but Lei Jun’s matching tweet does. “The Xiaomi 13 Series Launch event is on February 26th!” the Xiaomi boss wrote on Twitter. And since he speaks of “series”, the base model should make its worldwide debut alongside the Pro.
