Xiaomi has been doing a great job with cameras lately. The Xiaomi 13 Pro has been unanimously well-received for its Leica-branded camera system, with three 50MP rear shooters to match in terms of quality. The Chinese OEM may be looking for itself with four 50MP rear shooters on the upcoming Xiaomi 13 Ultra.
Noted leaker Yogesh Brar has shared rumored specs of Xiaomi’s upcoming Ultra flagship. According to him, the phone is expected to come with very strong specs. And if the Xiaomi 13 Pro and the Xiaomi 12S Ultra are benchmarks, the Xiaomi 13 Ultra could be on track to become one of the best camera smartphones in 2023.
The Xiaomi 13 Ultra is rumored to come with a 6.7-inch 120Hz QHD+ AMOLED LTPO display, similar to what’s present on the 12S Ultra. Being a top flagship, you get the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 along with 12 GB / 16 GB RAM options and 256 GB and 512 GB internal storage. The phone also packs a 4,900mAh battery that supports 90W wired charging and 50W wireless charging.
What will make the 13 Ultra stand out is the rear camera setup. The phone is expected to come with four 50MP rear cameras, covering all use cases: standard, ultra-wide, telephoto and zoom. Meanwhile, the Xiaomi 13 Pro has three cameras, missing the second zoom camera.
We don’t know the exact details of the zoom setting, but as there’s already talk of a telephoto (possibly 3.2x optical zoom like the 13 Pro), the camera zoom could be somewhere between 5x and 10x optical zoom. The phone also retains Leica color science, which has been rather crucial to Xiaomi’s recent camera success.
The front camera of the Xiaomi 13 Ultra is expected to be a 32MP shooter, which is the same as on the past few phones. The phone runs MIUI 14 with an Android 13 base.
Xiaomi has not announced anything about the launch of the phone. However, suggest leaks that we could see the Xiaomi 13 Ultra launch in May 2023. Leaks also suggest that the phone will be sold globally, not just in China.
We’re very excited to see what Xiaomi has in store for the 13 Ultra. Hopefully, the company remains ambitious with the launch and we see wider global availability.
