Xiaomi 13 Ultra with Leica-tuned quad-camera setup launched: see price

Xiaomi 13 Ultra was launched in China on Tuesday. The smartphone is probably the most anticipated release from the Chinese smartphone maker of 2023. After multiple reports and leaks regarding the handset’s specs and design, the company has also been teasing customers with certain details about the handset ahead of its debut. It features Leica-tuned cameras with high-quality custom Summicron lenses. Xiaomi and Leica entered into a long-term partnership earlier this year to optimise the image quality of the former’s smartphone offerings. The phone also introduces a ‘Sleep Mode’, which is said to optimise battery usage when the device has as little as 1 percent battery left.

Xiaomi 13 Ultra Specifications, Features

The recently launched dual SIM (Nano) smartphone from Xiaomi features a 6.73-inch AMOLED WQHD+ (3,200 x 1,440) display with up to 120Hz refresh rate, 360Hz touch sampling rate, with a peak brightness of 1,300 nits. It runs on MIUI 14 based on Android 13 out-of-the-box.

The Xiaomi 13 Ultra is powered by a 4nm octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset along with an Adreno 740 GPU. It comes with up to 16GB of LPPDR5X RAM and up to 1TB of UFS 4.0 storage.

The highlight of the device is the camera unit that it comes with. The Leica-tuned quad-camera unit on the rear consists of a 50-megapixel 1-inch IMX989 sensor and three 50-megapixel IMX858 sensors. The cameras offer six different focal lengths and come with Leica’s custom Summicron lenses.

The 32-megapixel front-facing camera is housed in a centered hole-punch cutout at the top of the display. The camera setup also includes a Fast Shot mode that is said to be designed for street photography. The mode allows the user to capture a photo in 0.8 seconds.

Xiaomi 13 Ultra houses a 5,000mAh battery unit with 90W wired and 50W wireless fast charging support. The wired fast charging solution is said to fully charge the handset in 34 minutes.

The company has also introduced a Hibernation mode on the device, which kicks in when the phone has just 1 percent battery left. This allows the phone to stay on for 60 minutes to connect with others and gives you a talk time of 12 minutes. The phone also has an IP68 rating for dust and water resistance and an in-display fingerprint sensor for biometric authentication, the company said.
