The Xiaomi 13 will logically be the next generation of high-end smartphones from the Chinese manufacturer. And the specifications of the Pro model are already beginning to be revealed.
The presentation of the future generation 8 Gen 2 of the Qualcomm Snapdragon platform, scheduled in two weeks, raises the question of the first smartphones that will be equipped with the mobile SoC. And the Xiaomi 13 Pro is said to be high on the list.
A slighty bigger screen
According to Yogesh Brar, a contributor to the well-informed 91mobiles, we should expect a smartphone with a 6.73-inch screen, which is just as large as the Xiaomi 12 Pro, which has a 6.28-inch display. The Xiaomi 13 Pro would be entitled to an Oled LTPO panel, with a dynamic refresh rate, and offering a 2K definition. Betting largely on its display, the smartphone would not forget the power, with its Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chip accompanied by 8 to 12 GB of RAM, while its storage would amount to 128, 256 or 512 GB. To support these elements, it would have to rely on a 4800 mAh battery compatible with a fast charge at 120 W, as was the case with the battery of the 12 Pro.
This draft spec sheet focuses on the photo component of this Xiaomi 13 Pro. While to date, only the Xiaomi 12S Ultra takes advantage of the partnership between the Chinese manufacturer and Leica, the model 13 would also benefit. The know-how of the German specialist would be applied to a triple photo module with three 50-megapixel sensors, the first of which, of one inch, would be the Sony IMX989 already seen in the 12S Ultra. Two other sensors of 50 MP each would be associated, one with an ultra-wide angle lens, the other with a telephoto lens. The Surge C2 chip from Xiaomi would complete the set to process the shots.
Remember that the 12 range, released in spring 2022 in Europe, had been announced in late December in China. It could therefore be that the officialization of this very likely series 13 will take place in the coming weeks in the Middle Kingdom.
