Xiaomi has made an official announcement that its highly anticipated Xiaomi 13 Ultra will be unveiled later this month, and it is set to be the most advanced flagship in the Xiaomi 13 lineup. Although the specific launch date has not been revealed by the company, an online retailer in China has recently listed a new event that suggests the imminent release of the Xiaomi 13 Ultra.
Indeed, it does seem a bit early to talk about the Xiaomi 13 Ultra, given that the Xiaomi 12S Ultra was released in July last year. However, with the recent confirmation from Xiaomi and the appearance of an upcoming event on a Chinese online retailer store app, it appears that Xiaomi is gearing up to release the Ultra variant of the Xiaomi 13 series as early as this month. This news has certainly piqued the interest of tech enthusiasts who are eagerly waiting to see what the new Xiaomi 13 Ultra has to offer.
The anticipation for the Xiaomi 13 Ultra continues to build, with a Chinese online retailer now displaying a new Xiaomi event on its home page. The event is scheduled for April 18 at 7:00 PM local time, and while there’s no direct mention of the 13 Ultra, a recent teaser from Leica strongly suggests an early release. The teaser simply stated, “See you this month,” and with April 18th falling within this month, it’s easy to see why many are now expecting the highly anticipated flagship to make an appearance.
It’s interesting to note that this new information aligns with a poster that was leaked on the internet last month. The poster suggested that the Xiaomi 13 series launch event would take place on April 17th, which is just one day before the online retailer’s event. It’s possible that both events are related to the launch of the Xiaomi 13 Ultra, but we’ll have to wait for official confirmation from Xiaomi.
The Xiaomi 13 Ultra is following in the footsteps of the Xiaomi 13 series by partnering with Leica for its camera technology. This means that the upcoming flagship will feature the iconic camera maker’s technology, which is expected to significantly enhance the device’s photography capabilities. Furthermore, Xiaomi has confirmed that the smartphone will be launched globally, indicating that it will not be exclusive to the Chinese market.
It is unfortunate to hear that there are rumors that the Xiaomi 13 Ultra may not be released in certain markets like India, Indonesia, and Japan. However, given Xiaomi’s strong presence and popularity among Indian consumers, there is still hope that the company may decide to launch the flagship in India. Only time will tell what Xiaomi’s plans are for the global release of the Xiaomi 13 Ultra.
A recent leak suggests that the Xiaomi 13 Ultra will come with a USB 3.x connectivity port, which would be a significant upgrade from the outdated USB 2.0 standard that Xiaomi has used on its smartphones in the past. If this rumor turns out to be true, the Xiaomi 13 Ultra will be the first Xiaomi phone to adopt the latest USB technology.
In terms of performance, the upcoming flagship is expected to be powered by the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoC, which will be coupled with LPDDR5x RAM and UFS 4.1 storage. The Xiaomi 13 Ultra is also rumored to support 90W wired and 50W wireless charging, which would be a significant improvement over the charging speeds of previous Xiaomi phones.
