The Xiaomi 13S isn't coming, the OnePlus 11 concept is coming to Mobile World Congress, and the Asus ROG Phone 6 is getting Android 13.
Xiaomi 12S Ultra

Xiaomi 13S canceled

Ahead of the global launch of the Xiaomi 13 series, Xiaomi Founder and CEO Lei Jun shared sad news today. The company will not bring Xiaomi 13S series. Last year, the Xiaomi 12S, 12S Pro and the flagship camera phone Xiaomi 12S Ultra were released six months after the Xiaomi 12 series debuted. In addition to minor camera optimizations, they also offered more up-to-date chipsets.

The Xiaomi 13 and Xiaomi 13 Pro were launched in China back in December and will make their international debut at MWC Barcelona this weekend. In addition, a Xiaomi 13 Lite will also come and a Xiaomi 13 Ultra would not be a big surprise either.


OnePlus 11 Concept: New image reveals design

A few days ago, OnePlus already teased the OnePlus 11 Concept with a back with light strips dubbed “ice blue pipelines”. This first teaser only showed parts of the design. Today a larger picture came to light, which gives a better impression of the overall design.

The light strips surround the camera module and run through the back of the smartphone. The OnePlus logo sits in the bottom right corner of the cover.

OnePlus has not yet revealed what exactly the point behind these pipelines is. But with the OnePlus 11 concept also on display at Mobile World Congress on February 27 in Barcelona, Spain, the mystery won’t be long in coming.


Asus ROG Phone 6 and ROG Phone 6 Pro get Android 13

The Asus ROG Phone 6 and ROG Phone 6 Pro were launched back in July last year. Finally the update to Android 13 is available. Previously, Asus had already updated the Zenfone 9, Zenfone 8 and Zenfone 8 Flip as promised last November.

The new Android 13 build is labeled 33.0610.2810.72 for both the ROG Phone 6 and ROG Phone 6 Pro. It may take a few days for it to reach all the devices out there in the wild. As usual, you can also search for the new software manually in the meantime. To do this, simply start the manual search under Settings > System > System updates.

If you then want to return to Android 12, however, all data is gone. Therefore, before upgrading to Android 13, you should back up all your important data.
