Both devices feature Qualcomm’s most powerful mobile processor currently available, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2. Xiaomi is also expected to launch more phones in the series. A Xiaomi 13 Lite model has been spotted on Google Play Console as well. Apart from that, Xiaomi is now said to launch an Ultra model in the series soon.

Xiaomi has now announced that it will be hosting a launch event at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2023. The Mobile World Congress will take place between February 27 to March 2 in Barcelona, Spain. Here’s everything you need to know about it.

Xiaomi 13S Ultra May Launch on February 27

Xiaomi will host a launch event at MWC 2023. The invite for the event says “Experience new Xiaomi technology” which indicates that the company may have a lot in store for the users. The brand is said to launch the Xiaomi 13 series globally at the event. Apart from that, the company may launch a Xiaomi 13S Ultra at the same event along with other devices. A report from 91mobiles earlier tipped the same.

The Xiaomi 13S Ultra is said to have Leica-tuned camera technologies and a Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset under the hood. The phone may feature a Quad HD+ display.

To take you back down memory lane, Xiaomi partnered with Leica in order to improve their camera technology which debuted first with the Xiaomi 12S Ultra. The phone was highly praised by reviewers however, Xiaomi’s top chief Lei Jun announced that it will remain exclusive to its home country, China, and will not launch in global markets.

But he also announced that Xiaomi will launch the next generation of the Ultra model in global markets which is said to be the Xioami 13S Ultra. The highlight of the 12S Ultra was its massive 1-inch Sony IMX989 50MP primary camera so we can expect the 13 Ultra to feature similar Leica-tuned cameras with a 1-inch primary camera sensor and some improvements.

Although no details of the Xiaomi 13 Ultra or Xiaomi 13S Ultra are out as of now, the report mentions that it may flaunt a 120Hz or 144Hz Quad HD+ AMOLED display. It might pack a Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor under the hood which could be paired with up to 16GB LPDDR5X RAM and up to 512GB UFS4.0 storage. The phone could boot Android 13-based MIUI 14 skin out of the box.

As Xiaomi Ultra series’ main USP is its cameras, we can expect Xiaomi to add something extra to its Xiaomi 13S Ultra. It won’t be surprising if Xiaomi adds something extraordinary to the device’s camera.

Apart from smartphones, there’s a chance that Xiaomi could debut the Xiaomi Pad 6 and Pad 6 Pro at MWC 2023.
