At the time of launch, the Xiaomi 12S Ultra was the smartphone with the best camera system on the market, but unfortunately remained exclusive for China. That will change very soon with the successor Xiaomi 13 Ultra. Xiaomi and Leica have just announced the new top model, confirming that it will be coming this month and will be sold worldwide.
Xiaomi spread the news via their Weibo profile and Leica via Twitter. There the company also confirmed that the Leica partnership for the new 13 Ultra will continue. It will get a unique camera system with several new lenses, including a new Summicron lens.
At the same time, the Xiaomi 13 Ultra with model number 2304FPN6DG was approved by IMDA – the Communications Authority of Singapore. However, the listing itself does not reveal anything important – only 5G connectivity, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and NFC.
However, various technical data of the Xiaomi cell phone are already haunting the rumor mill, which tipster Yogesh Brar has summarized. This includes a 6.7-inch LTPO AMOLED display with a refresh rate of 120 Hz. A Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset sits at the helm in combination with 12/16 GB RAM and 256/512 GB storage. The camera setup will consist of four 50-megapixel cameras – wide, ultra-wide, telephoto and periscope. There is also a 32 megapixel selfie camera, Android 13 with MIUI 14 and a 4,900 mAh battery that charges 90 watts with a cable and 50 watts wirelessly.
The official teaser campaign for the Xiaomi 13 Ultra should pick up speed in the next few days. First and foremost, you can look forward to a probably huge camera module, which should be even bigger than the one on the Xiaomi 12S Ultra.
