Xiaomi 13 series December 1 launch event has been postponed. The company was expected to launch two new flagship phones at its December 1 launch event in China. Xiaomi was also dropping teasers which revealed the new specifications of the phones a day ahead of the launch. However, hours after the latest teaser was dropped, Xiaomi has now announced that it is postponing the launch of its upcoming flagship smartphone series in China.

The company took to Weibo to announce the change in the date of the upcoming Xiaomi 13 launch event. In its post, the company did not state any reason behind the postponing of the launch event.

The wait for the new Xiaomi 13 series will be a bit longer than expected. According to the latest announcement, the launch event has been postponed. “We are sorry to inform you that the launch of the new Mi 13 series will be postponed. We will notify you as soon as the new release date is confirmed. Thank you for your understanding and support,” Xiaomi posted on Weibo. The company did not state the exact reason behind the launch of the upcoming flagship smartphone series.

The Xiaomi 13 series could debut later in December. Typically, the brand launches its flagship phones by the end of December. This time around, things were about to be slightly different but the postponement of the launch means that the new Xiaomi flagship phones could debut a bit later.

Xiaomi is expected to announce the new launch date soon. Meanwhile, what we know about the phones is that the Xiaomi 13 Pro will feature a 50MP Sony IMX989 1-inch sensor. It will be accompanied by a 75mm Leica telephoto sensor. The 13 Pro is rumoured to feature two 50MP Samsung JN1 sensors for the telephoto and ultrawide cameras along with the 50MP 1-inch sensor. The vanilla model, on the other hand, is rumoured to feature a 50MP main camera, a 13MP ultrawide camera and a 10MP telephoto camera. 

The 13 Pro will sport a 6.73-inch OLED 120Hz display, whereas the vanilla model will come with a smaller 6.3-inch 120Hz Full HD+ OLED display. While the vanilla model will sport a flat display, the 13 Pro’s screen is slightly curved. Both phones will offer up to 1900 nits of peak brightness and sport a hole-punch cutout at the top centre.

The devices are confirmed to feature a Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoC. They are also confirmed to boot MIUI 14 out of the box. The 13 Pro is rumoured to pack a 4820mAh battery with 120W fast charging, 50W wireless charging and 10W reverse wireless charging support. Xiaomi is likely to pack a 4500mAh battery in the vanilla model, which will support 67W fast charging, 50W wireless charging and 10W reverse wireless charging.

The devices are also likely to come in leather and glass back colour options. Xiaomi could launch the 13 Pro with 8GB + 256GB, 12GB + 256GB and 12GB + 512GB storage options. The vanilla model is likely to launch with 8GB + 128GB, 8GB + 256GB and 12GB + 256GB storage options.
