Xiaomi has already confirmed that the Xiaomi 13 Ultra will launch later this month but is still keeping the design under wraps. The next 3D renderings of the new camera flagship have come to light today. The design looks slightly toned down compared to the Xiaomi 12S Ultra. The 1-inch Sony IMX989 sensor under the main camera requires a lot of space, so Xiaomi again uses a two-level camera module. Instead of the previous model’s stacked design, however, the 13 Ultra attempts to merge the bottom tier with the rear.
According to measurements from the CAD design, the Xiaomi 13 Ultra measures 163.2 x 74.6 x 9.57 mm without the camera module. Including cameras, the total thickness is 15.61 mm. For comparison, the 12S Ultra measures 9.1 mm without the module and 13.5 mm with it. We’ll double check these numbers when Xiaomi officially unveils the new Ultra. Either way, the Xiaomi smartphone is shaping up to be quite a large device. The texture on the back is probably faux leather.
The Xiaomi 13 Ultra will have four cameras, one more than the 12S Ultra and Xiaomi 13 Pro. Rumors suggest it will have a quad 50 megapixel camera setup. There are no details on the additional module, but it could be a mid-range zoom lens. This would close the gap between the 23mm main lens and the 75mm periscope (the values are taken from the 13 Pro camera setup).

A Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset should take over the drive, which draws power from a 4,900 mAh battery with 90 watts of wired charging and 50 watts of wireless charging. The curved AMOLED display should be 6.7 inches and refresh at 120Hz. Also, the Xiaomi 13 Ultra is sold worldwide. There’s no official word on pricing yet, of course, but according to a leak, it will cost 6,300 CNY (€838/$915) for the base 8/256GB model and 6,800 CNY (€905/$987) for the 12/256 GB version due. The Xiaomi 13 Pro costs 5,400 CNY or 5,800 CNY in China. The 8/256 GB version is not available in Europe.
