Back in December of 2022, Xiaomi launched its highly anticipated flagship smartphones, the Xiaomi 13 and 13 Pro, in China, with a subsequent global release in February 2023. However, tech enthusiasts are now eagerly anticipating the arrival of the Xiaomi 13 Ultra, the ultimate flagship phone from the brand. Although the Xiaomi 12S Ultra boasted the best camera system in its flagship range, the phone was exclusively available in China, disappointing global consumers. Fortunately, the Xiaomi 13 Ultra will be launched worldwide this month (April), putting an end to the long wait for its arrival.
Xiaomi has officially confirmed the imminent arrival of the highly anticipated Xiaomi 13 Ultra, and the device is set to feature a groundbreaking camera system. The company announced the release via its Weibo page, and the news was also confirmed by Leica’s Twitter profile, which revealed that the partnership with Xiaomi will continue for the Ultra model. The device’s camera system will boast a new Summicron lens, which is the first of its kind in the world, promising to offer a unique photography experience to users. This announcement has generated a great deal of excitement in the tech community, and consumers are eagerly anticipating the official launch of the Xiaomi 13 Ultra.
As anticipation for the Xiaomi 13 Ultra builds, the phone’s model number 2304FPN6DG has recently been approved by Singapore’s communications regulator, the IMDA. While the listing itself only confirms the presence of standard features such as 5G connectivity, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and NFC, the approval indicates that the phone is being prepared for an international launch.
