The Chinese Apple will introduce the Xiaomi Mi 13 series of flagship phones in the coming days. They will be the first to come with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 mobile chip. Though the VIVO X90 is assumed to sport the same chip, at the launch conference held recently, VIVO didn’t say a word about the specific model of the chi. Well, the release date is approaching. So it’s logical that the leaks and rumors about the forthcoming models have intensified.
Xiaomi Mi 13 design and screen
For instance, today, a Weibo blogger specializing in smartphone accessories showed a protective case of the alleged Xiaomi Mi 13. As we can see, the Mi 13 adopts a straight screen with a central punch-hole design. Also, the middle frame is designed with right-angled edges. The Mi 13 Pro will also use a 6.7-inch Samsung 2K E6 curved screen. Its frame will be narrower than the previous generation.
Before this, we heard that the Xiaomi Mi 13 Standard Edition has a screen size of 6.2 inches and a refresh rate of 120Hz. Apart from the second-generation Snapdragon 8 mobile platform, this variant will also support 67W wired flash charging. In this regard, Xiaomi said it would become the mobile phone with the most robust performance and battery life in Xiaomi’s history.
Compared with the Mi 12S, because Mi 13 uses a straight screen, its width is slightly increased, between 70-71mm, and the width of Mi 12S is 69.9mm. Though there is a little difference, they ideally fit in the palm, allowing users to do single-hand operations easily. Undoubtedly, it will be the most powerful small-screen flagship in the Android camp.
The most powerful performance in Xiaomi’s history
In fact, the phone has been leaked on GeekBench, showing a performance close to the Apple A16. Moreover, this model has surpassed many models in the same segment, scoring 1507 points in the single-core test and 5343 points in the multi-core test.
The most powerful A16 chip among the currently listed models has a single-core score of 1877 and a multi-core score of 5447. The Mi 13 series is infinitely close to this score
Price and launch date
However, we have also heard that due to the upgraded positioning of Mi 13 and the impact of the cost exchange rate, the price is expected to increase significantly, 15-20%. It should cost around 4,500 yuan ($627).
The machine will be released in December and appear on the same stage as MIUI 14. As for the latter, the product manager of Xiaomi has already stated that it can compete with iOS.
In addition, the Mi 13 series has strong performance and dramatically upgrades the camera performance. The Mi 13 Pro will use the 1-inch super outsole IMX989, and the camera level will be significantly enhanced with the Leica imaging system.
Lastly, the Xiaomi Mi 13 is going to offer up to 10 color variants. Thus, it will become the only flagship phone with so many colors.
Today, we learned that a number of new Xiaomi products would be launched on platforms such as JD.com and Tmall. They will become available for pre-order on December 1. Moreover, Xiaomi also revealed that a number of new products would open for appointment in advance next Monday, November 28. This is probably the official announcement time of the upcoming Xiaomi mi 13. Apart from smartphones, the company will also uncover the new Xiaomi Watch S2, the Xiaomi Buds 4, etc.
