The Xiaomi 13 Ultra has received the first software update, which primarily irons out errors. Unfortunately, as is now common with modern technology, the devices are often not fully developed on the market. Buyers quickly discover the most obvious bugs and manufacturers follow up with new firmware. In the case of the 13 Ultra, it’s called MIUI 18.104.22.168.TMACNXM and is intended for the Chinese version of the software. That makes sense since the Xiaomi phone is not yet sold worldwide.
According to the changelog, the new firmware fixes frame rate issues in games, erroneous overheating warnings, and, in some rare cases, abnormally high CPU power consumption. The update also brings Google’s latest May 2023 security patch.
Xiaomi 13 Ultra should cost 1,499 euros in Europe
In addition, the first price for the Xiaomi 13 Ultra for Europe of allegedly 1,499 euros appeared today. Although the price has not yet been officially announced, it has been confirmed by several sources. For these 1,499 euros you get a model with 12/512 GB in black or green. That’s around €100 more than the RRP of a Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra with 12/512 GB. The Xiaomi comes with a case, a USB-C cable and a 90 watt charger and the Galaxy phone only comes with a pen.
Xiaomi itself has already confirmed that the 13 Ultra will be sold worldwide. But the Chinese have not yet given any information on the price or availability dates. As soon as the time comes, the Xiaomi 13 Ultra will be one of the best smartphones you can buy in this country. It features a Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset, a 6.73-inch AMOLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate, and a 5,000mAh battery that can be fully charged in just 40 minutes.
The highlight, however, is the camera setup. The Xiaomi 13 Ultra has the most versatile setup on the market today. It includes a main camera, an ultra wide, a 3.2x zoom and a 5x periscope zoom. All cameras offer autofocus and large sensors.
