Xiaomi has finally presented its brand new high-end mobiles. First scheduled for December 1, the release of the Xiaomi 13 and 13 Pro has been pushed back to December 11, 2022 following a national mourning in the country. Not enough to dampen the enthusiasm of the Chinese manufacturer, which has therefore presented in China what the brand positions as competitors to theiPhone 14 and in the future Galaxy S23.

Everything about photography with Leica

The information given by the technical sheets of the two mobiles is not particularly surprising. Both the standard model and the Pro model have a Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chip8 or 12 GB of RAM with 128, 256 and 512 GB of memory, and arrive natively with Android 13. And of course, the two mobiles have Leica stamped photo modules, to reinforce the partnership initiated with the series of Xiaomi 12S.

If in appearance the two mobiles are very similar, their technical sheets differ on a lot of small key points. Unsurprisingly, the “Pro” version sports the most impressive features, while the standard version makes some sacrifices in order to display a lower price.

As often in recent years, particular attention has been paid to the photo component of these two devices. The Xiaomi 13 Pro has the same 1-inch Sony IMX989 sensor which had already impressed us on the 12S Ultra. The module is equipped with Made in Xiaomi optical image stabilization. The standard model swaps the 1 inch sensor for a 1/1.49 inch Sony IMX800. The hardware is not everything, we will have to see how the Chinese manufacturer has been able to adapt the photo algorithms on the two smartphones. With any luck, if Leica had its say, the Xiaomi 13 and 13 Pro should be good surprises on that side.

Price and release date

In the photo or in the rest, Xiaomi has not revolutionized its range compared to the models 12 and 12 Pro. We can just note the efforts made on the battery, with a 4820 mAh accumulator on the Pro model. The 120 watt load is still there. Always in the radius of the differences, the standard model offers a flat screen, while the Pro displays a curved panel.

The Xiaomi 13 and 13 Pro have only been announced in China so far. The 13 costs between 3999 and 4999 yuan depending on the version chosen (i.e. between 550 and 700 € in gross conversion excluding tax) and the 13 Pro between 4999 and 6299 yuan (i.e. between 700 and 900 €). It will probably be necessary to wait a few months before the mobiles are released on the old continent and the European prices are officially revealed. It is clear that with a price positioning like this and such a solid technical sheet, the Chinese manufacturer wants to overshadow Apple and Samsung.
