The latest leak is an alleged live image of the vanilla model. It suggests that Xiaomi will launch its upcoming flagship phone with a new design. Let’s take a look at the Xiaomi 13 design, specifications and other details known so far.

Xiaomi 13 Design

Xiaomi 13 series launch date is yet to be announced. An alleged live image of the vanilla model has leaked online ahead of its launch. The launch will take place first in China, followed by other markets next year. The live image (via) suggests that the Xiaomi 13 series could get a new camera module design.

The image shows a device with a grey, glossy back panel sporting a square-shaped camera module. The camera module corners are slightly curved. It houses a triple-camera setup on the back. There is also a “Laser” text on the back, suggesting the use of laser autofocus.

Oddly, there is no Leica branding, which was seen on the 12S series. The report also does not reveal the camera specifications of the phone. It is rumoured that the vanilla model will feature a 50MP main camera sensor. It is also said to sport a 6.3-inch AMOLED display with a Full HD+ or a 1.5K resolution and 120Hz refresh rate support.

The 13 Pro, on the other hand, is said to sport a taller 6.73-inch QHD+ AMOLED display with 120Hz refresh rate support. There will be a hole-punch cutout at the top centre for the front camera. The Pro model is also said to pack a 5000mAh battery with 120W fast charging support. Xiaomi could launch the 13 series with a Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoC.
