On April 18th, Beijing time, Xiaomi officially released its new flagship smartphone, the Xiaomi 13 Ultra. The first launch included three color options: olive green, black, and white. On May 4th, Xiaomi announced the release of three limited edition custom colors for the Xiaomi 13 Ultra: starry blue, Cabernet Orange, and ginkgo yellow. Gizcoupon was among the first to receive the Xiaomi 13 Ultra Cabernet Orange version, and we now bring you an unboxing experience.
Packaging and appearance of Xiaomi 13 Ultra cabernet orange version
The packaging box for the Xiaomi 13 Ultra Cabernet Orange version remains black, which is the same as the standard version. Additionally, the front has a conspicuous red Leica logo.
When opening the box and taking out the phone, we can see that the Cabernet Orange version still uses a bare-skin back cover. Its bright orange color is very refreshing and vibrant. Moreover, the orange color forms a striking contrasting effect with the black of the camera and the middle frame, which is a popular color combination these days and is very fashionable.
The vegan leather surface is very delicate, using the “second-generation technology nano-skin,” and has a slight damping feeling. Furthermore, the black “Xiaomi” logo is also embedded in the lower left corner of the phone, which is exquisite and orderly.
Camera and body design of Xiaomi 13 Ultra cabernet orange version
The camera module adopts a circular mirror design inspired by a single-lens reflex camera lens. It looks very distinctive.
The overall back follows the Unibody body design language. Moreover, the raised part of the camera module transitions smoothly to the lower hand-held area through an inclined slope, giving the entire device a more integrated aesthetic.
Frame and buttons
The Xiaomi 13 Ultra features a flat design for its metal frame, which extends to both sides of the rear shell and seamlessly integrates with the vegan leather part, creating two “runways” on both sides of the leather. This design, combined with the Cabernet Orange color, adds a unique and personalized touch to the phone.
In terms of the frame elements, the bottom of the phone houses the speaker, USB Type-C slot, SIM card slot, and microphone. Additionally, the top of the phone has a speaker, microphone, and infrared sensor.
On the right side of the device are the volume buttons, while the left side only has an antenna isolation element.
Screen and size
The front of the Xiaomi 13 Ultra features a 6.73-inch 2K screen with a centrally located punch-hole camera. The phone boasts ultra-narrow bezels on three sides and a slightly wider bottom bezel.
The dimensions of the Xiaomi 13 Ultra are 163.18 x 74.64 x 9.06mm, and it weighs 227g. After all, it is a top-image flagship, and its weight is worthy of its name.
Accessories and purchase info
In terms of the final packaging content, the Cabernet Orange version gives a black phone case, charger, data cable, user manual, SIM card ejector tool, and a commemorative card.
The Xiaomi 13 Ultra Cabernet Orange version is now available for pre-order. It will be exclusively available on the Xiaomi website on May 6th at 10 am Beijing time, and those interested can get ready to make a purchase.
