Last August, Xiaomi’s CEO acknowledged the upcoming release of the Xiaomi 13 Ultra, indicating that the device would be available outside mainland China, in contrast to the Xiaomi 12S Ultra. Since December, there has been persistent speculation about this phone, and now, a poster making rounds on Weibo and Twitter has disclosed the exact date of its launch.
Based on a leaked poster, it appears that the Xiaomi 13 Ultra is scheduled to launch in China on April 17 at 7 PM GMT+8. However, the authenticity of this poster remains unverified, so it’s best to approach this information with some skepticism.
A trusted source, SnoopyTech, has previously indicated that the Xiaomi 13 Ultra will likely be unveiled for global markets in May. While the leaked poster indicates an April 17 launch date in China, it is still unclear whether the global launch will take place simultaneously or at a later date. While the MIUI software of the Xiaomi 13 Ultra appearing on Xiaomi’s Official MIUI Server does suggest that the launch of the device is imminent, it is still important to exercise caution and wait for official confirmation from Xiaomi.
It’s worth noting that the Xiaomi 13 Ultra’s last internal MIUI build is V126.96.36.199.TMACNXM and that the MIUI China build has been completed, suggesting that the launch of the device is getting closer. Additionally, the upcoming launch of the Xiaomi Pad 6 series alongside the Xiaomi 13 Ultra is sure to grab the attention of tech enthusiasts.
Leaked information and certifications so far paint an exciting picture of the Xiaomi 13 Ultra’s specs. The device is expected to feature lightning-fast 90W wired charging and 50W wireless charging, a powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset, and a stunning QHD+ LTPO OLED display. The camera system is said to be powered by Leica, promising impressive photography capabilities. Furthermore, the device will likely run on MIUI 14, based on the latest Android 13 operating system.
Overall, the Xiaomi 13 Ultra is shaping up to be an impressive flagship device, and we can’t wait to see what official teasers and announcements Xiaomi has in store for us in the coming weeks.
However, if the Xiaomi 13 Ultra does indeed have the best camera hardware, it could be an exciting addition to the smartphone market. While there are rumors circulating about a possible April 17, 2023 launch date in China, we should approach this information with a degree of caution until Xiaomi provides official confirmation. Nonetheless, if the launch is indeed happening in less than a month, it will undoubtedly be an exciting time for Xiaomi fans and the smartphone industry as a whole.
