Xiaomi plans to launch the Xiaomi 13 series, its flagship line designed to rival Samsung’s and Apple’s top phones, tomorrow in China.
In a series of Weibo posts Thursday, Xiaomi shared images of the Xiaomi 13 and Xiaomi 13 Pro that show off a large Leica-branded camera bump as well as the design. The Xiaomi 13 seems to have boxed edges that are similar to the iPhone 14, while the Xiaomi 13 Pro features a tapered edge.
Xiaomi had previously revealed some specs of its upcoming flagship. The company said that both the Xiaomi 13 and Xiaomi 13 Pro will be powered by the top-of-the-line Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset and each will feature a telephoto camera capable of 3.26x optical zoom. The Pro model will get a larger sensor taking the form a huge 1-inch sensor for the main camera.
The company didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment about a timeline for a global release. However, based on Xiaomi’s track record, the main flagship lineup typically receives an international release several months after a release in China.
