Xiaomi 13 Ultra was announced today at a launch event held in China. True to its name, the smartphone brings many “Ultra” aspects with itself and a 50MP quad Leica-tuned camera setup is only one of them. There’s a powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoC under the hood and the front boasts a C7 LTPO OLED panel with a peak brightness of 2,600 nits, making it the smartphone with the brightest display. Let’s take a closer look at the specifications of the new Xiaomi smartphone.
Since the Xiaomi 13 Ultra is a camera-focused handset, it would be unwise to discuss anything else first. The smartphone arrives as a true imaging flagship from the brand with a Leica Vario-Summicron lens on the back. There’s a 1-inch 50MP Sony IMX989 main camera sensor, which also includes support for variable aperture between f/1.9 and f/4.0. For the unaware, variable aperture will allow users to control the light intake and also the depth of field.
Not just that, there’s also a 50MP Sony IMX858 f/1.8 ultrawide sensor with a 122-degree FOV. The telephoto setup features a pair of Sony IMX858 sensors, each boasting 50 megapixels. The first sensor has a 75mm focal length, which is equivalent to a 2.5x zoom, and an f/3.0 maximum aperture. The second sensor has a longer focal length of 120mm, providing a 5x zoom, and also an f/3.0 maximum aperture.
As we mentioned earlier, cameras are not the only “Ultra” aspect of the Xiaomi 13 Ultra. It also brings one of the best displays out there. The handset uses a new C7 LTPO OLED panel developed jointly by Xiaomi and China Star. The display offers a 1,440p resolution and a maximum peak brightness of 2,600 nits, making it the brightest display so far. For comparison, the iPhone 14 Pro Max can reach up to only 2,300 nits.
Under the hood, the handset gets a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor, which is paired with either 12 or 16GB RAM, and 256, 512, or 1TB of UFS 4.0 storage. Fueling the handset is a 5,000mAh battery with 90W wired charging and 50W wireless charging. Xiaomi says the battery can last up to 60 minutes at 1% battery. Another notable upgrade is the USB 3.2 port. On the software front, the Xiaomi 13 Ultra runs MIUI 14 based on Android 13.
