The Xiaomi 13 Lite, which has not yet been released, has paid a visit to the Google Play Console. On the one hand, the design and on the other hand some important technical data came to light. The device is codenamed Ziyi, which sounds a lot like the Xiaomi Civi 2. The picture, on the other hand, looks more like the Xiaomi Civi 1S.

The rest of the specifications in the GPC list confirm a display resolution of 1080 x 2400 pixels, a Snapdragon 7 Gen 1 chipset and 8 GB of RAM. Unfortunately, the entry still mentions Android 12 as the software version. Earlier rumors indicated that Xiaomi is also planning a Xiaomi 12 Lite 5G NE. The 12 Lite 5G NE as well as the Civi 2 and the upcoming Xiaomi 13 Lite are said to be technically identical.
Xiaomi 13S Ultra
But something should also happen at the other end of the product range: Xiaomi is said to be preparing to launch another 13 model at the Mobile World Congress next month. According to industry sources, this is the Xiaomi 13S Ultra. MWC 2023 will take place in Barcelona from February 27th to March 2nd. A highlight of the Ultra will be the Leica camera setup, similar to the other Xiaomi 13 models.
Xiaomi 12S Ultra
So far, the Xiaomi 13 Pro is the top model of the series. There is a good chance that there will be a 1-inch sensor under the main camera of the 13S Ultra, like that of the Xiaomi 12S Ultra. Should it be the Sony IMX989 again, it should get some updates. The upcoming Xiaomi flagship could get a Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset and a QHD+ display in addition to Leica optics.
Xiaomi Pad 6
Regardless, Xiaomi is reportedly working on the successors to the Xiaomi Pad 5, dubbed the Xiaomi Pad 6 and Pad 6 Pro. The Xiaomi tablets have the codenames Pipa and Liuqin and both already appeared in the MIUI source code. Like its predecessor, the Xiaomi Pad 6 should have a Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 processor. The non-Pro would also be the model for the markets outside of China if Xiaomi follows its previous pattern.
The Xiaomi 6 Pro, on the other hand, will get significantly more steam with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chipset. The Pro version could come with a 120 Hz AMOLED display with a resolution of 1,880 × 2,880 pixels. In comparison, the Xiaomi Pad 5 Pro came out with an IPS LCD panel. A quad-speaker setup and two cameras on the back including a depth sensor are also making the rounds of the rumor mill. According to Xiaomiui, the Xiaomi Pad 6 Pro with the model number M81 should also only be available in China.
