Xiaomi 13 and Xiaomi 13 Pro Announced for Europe and Asia

Xiaomi 13 flagship series has been announced ahead of the official start of the 2023 Mobile World Congress. The Xiaomi 13 and Xiaomi 13 Pro smartphones will be sold in Europe and Asia after officially being announced in China back in December 2022.

The Xiaomi 13 and 13 Pro are powerhouse devices with all of the “flagship” makings. While the Xiaomi 13 is a bit more scaled back with a 1080P flat display and smaller batteries, both have cameras that were co-engineered in partnership with Leica bringing a new experience to smartphone photography. Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chips also power them; they have 120 Hz displays for smooth UI navigation and have fast wired charging and 50 watts wireless charging, (the Xiaomi 13 Pro comes with a 120 W charging adaptor).

FROM THE PRESS RELEASE: The Leica Vario-Summicron 1.19-2.2/14-75 ASPH, camera system on Xiaomi 13 Pro covers focal lengths from 14mm to 75mm and consists of a 23mm wide-angle main camera with an ultra-large 1-inch IMX989 sensor, a 75mm floating telephoto camera, as well as a 14mm ultra-wide angle camera. First seen on Xiaomi 12S Ultra, the IMX989 sensor is the largest sensor ever incorporated into a smartphone. With high dynamic range, superb light-capturing capabilities, and fast responses, the large sensor ensures colorful images with distinct contrast and defined textures that reveal every fine detail. By adopting a DSLR-level internal focusing technology, the smartphone’s new 75mm telephoto lens utilizes a floating lens design to achieve a focal range from 10cm to infinity – perfect for framing stunning portraits and beautiful close-ups.

Xiaomi 13 and Xiaomi 13 Pro also excel at shooting video. An exceptional tool for pro-level videographers, both devices allow users to “Create in Dolby Vision®” with vivid colors, sharp contrast ratios, and rich details, capture 4K Ultra Night Videos and offer HyperOIS video stabilization for capturing in exceptional video quality.    

Unfortunately, the Xiaomi 13 and 13 pro aren’t coming to the United States officially, but they’ll be on sale on the Xiaomi site on March 8. The Xiaomi 13 starts at 999 Eur and will be available in Black, White, and Flora Green. The Xiaomi 13 Pro going for 1299 Eur and will be available in two colors, Ceramic White and Ceramic Black.
