Xiaomi 13 Pro Design Leaked

The Xiaomi 13 Pro could be among the first set of smartphones to feature the new Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoC debuting in November. Ahead of the official launch confirmation, a report by TechGoing has uploaded an alleged live image of the 13 Pro, which features a new camera module design. The camera module is square in shape and curves around the corners. It has a triple-camera setup with an LED flash module and the Leica branding. In comparison, the Xioami 12 Pro came with a vertically tall rectangular camera module. While the phone also featured a triple-camera setup, its sensor layout is different than the one seen in the alleged live image of the 13 Pro.

According to rumours, the upcoming 13 Pro could feature the 12S Ultra’s 1-inch Sony IMX989 sensor. If true, this will be another upgrade over the 12 Pro’s triple 50MP sensor setup. We currently do not have any details about the secondary and tertiary camera sensor setup of the 13 Pro.

Moving on, the image shows us the Silver colour variant of the 13 Pro. It also reveals that the rear panel will curve into the frame. The power and volume buttons could be located on the right edge.

An alleged live image of the 13 Pro’s front panel also surfaced recently. It revealed that the phone has a centrally aligned hole-punch cutout and curved edges. We can expect this to be a 6.7-inch AMOLED screen with a 2K resolution. The “About Phone” section of the Settings app further revealed that the 13 Pro will feature 3GB of Virtual RAM support on top of the 12GB RAM. It will feature a 3.0GHz processor, which could be the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoC.

The phone can also be seen running Android 13 out of the box. It will have a layer of MIUI 14 out of the box. The device was also spotted on the 3C certification website, which revealed its support for 120W fast charging out of the box. The vanilla Xiaomi 13, which has the model number 2211133C, will support 67W fast charging, according to a recent 3C listing.

Xiaomi has not confirmed any details yet. Therefore, it is advised to take the leaked details with a pinch of salt. With that in mind and if the leaked image is real, what are your thoughts about the 13 Pro’s design? Let us know in the comments below.
