An industry insider, Zhu Haizhou, once pointed out that manufacturers do not want to make the four sides of the iPhone’s thick frame as wide as possible but want to increase the screen ratio as much as possible. However, the design of the ultra-narrow four sides is more difficult and requires higher tech.
Xiaomi 13 may arrive early
Considering the latest information from @UniverseIce, it seems that next year’s high-end flagships, including Xiaomi 13, will be made into a “narrow and four-side” design. While increasing the screen ratio, the visual effect will likely surpass that of the iPhone. According to the information, the Xiaomi 13 series will debut in November.
If Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 arrives in November, then the Xiaomi 13 series may launch ahead of schedule. Popular Weibo tech blogger @DCS claims that the Xiaomi 13 series is progressing very quickly. Thus, the series will probably launch ahead of schedule. However, while we look forward to the arrival of the Xiaomi 13 series, the Xiaomi 12 Ultra will launch in the coming weeks.
Since the Snapdragon 888, Xiaomi usually launches its digital flagship in the same month as Snapdragon’s new flagship chip. Over the past two years, the launch month has been December. However, with Qualcomm set to speed up things, Xiaomi will most likely do the same.
