Xiaomi confirmed that the Xiaomi 13 Ultra will launch later this month, however, the company is keeping the design under wraps for now. That didn’t stop OnLeaks and Smartprix, who shared 3D renders of the new camera flagship and, well, have a look for yourself.
The design appears toned down compared to the 12S Ultra. The 1” IMX989 sensor requires more thickness, so Xiaomi resorted to a double bump again. However, instead of the stacked design of the previous model, the 13 Ultra tries to blend the lower level with the back.
According to measurements from the CAD design, the phone measures 163.2 x 74.6 x 9.57mm, without the bump. With the bump the total thickness comes out to 15.61mm. For comparison, the 12S Ultra is 9.1mm without the bump and 13.5mm with it.
We will double check these numbers when Xiaomi makes the new Ultra official (which is expected to happen on April 18), but this is shaping up to be one huge phone. The texture on the back is presumably faux leather.
The Xiaomi 13 Ultra will have four cameras, one more than the 12S Ultra and 13 Pro. Rumors suggest that it will be a quad 50MP setup. There are no details on the extra module, but we can speculate that it will be a mid-range zoom lens to bridge the gap between the 23mm main lens and the 75mm periscope (these numbers are from the 13 Pro camera setup).
The phone is expected to be powered by the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 as well as a 4,900mAh battery with 90W wired and 50W wireless charging. It should have a curved 6.7” 120Hz AMOLED display.
The Xiaomi 13 Ultra will be available globally. There is no official word on pricing yet, of course, but a leak showed a CNY 6,300 price tag for the base 8/256GB model and CNY 6,800 for the 12/256GB version. The equivalent Xiaomi 13 Pro units cost CNY 5,400 and CNY 5,800, respectively. The 8/256GB version isn’t available in Europe, the 12/256GB 13 Pro goes for €1,400.
