The Xiaomi 13 range will be released outside of China. The devices are equipped with Leica camera technology, among other things.
The Xiaomi 13 series has been for sale in China for some time, but the Chinese brand is now also introducing them in the rest of the world, or at least in Europe and broader parts of Asia. The company announced this at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. The United States will most likely fall by the wayside, partly due to trade measures between the two countries.
The Xiaomi 13 and 13 Pro are the brand’s new flagships. It is striking that this time they are equipped with a Leica camera system, the first for the brand. Furthermore, there are also Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chips on board. In addition, they support WiFi 7 and come with a fast charging system. The 4,500 mAh (and 4,820 mAh for the Pro) battery should last a full day.
The devices come in 13, 13 Pro and 13 Lite. Besides the price, the big difference between the three is mainly in the cameras. For instance, the Pro gets a dedicated 1-inch sensor, while the Lite replaces the Leica cameras with a more standard set of cameras. For the Xiaomi 13 Pro, you pay 1,299 euros for 12 GB + 256 GB of storage. On the other hand, the Xiaomi 13 comes standard with 8 + 256 GB of storage for 999 euros. For the Lite, you count 499 euros (8 + 128GB storage space).
