Xiaomi 13 to use a single-cell solution
This morning, popular Weibo leakster @DCS revealed the latest report regarding the Xiaomi 13. According to the report, the Xiaomi 13 will come with a multi-pole ear single-cell solution. This flagship series will combine this chip with a self-developed fast-charging IC. The device will use this technology to achieve a 100-watt fast charge + large battery in a thin and light body. In addition to the fast wired charging, the smartphone will also support 50W wireless fast charging.
Although the blogger did not clearly point out the specific model, we may likely be dealing with the Surge P1 chip. This is currently the only single-cell battery in the industry. The single-cell 120W fast charging is slightly slower than the dual-cell version. Nevertheless, it remains a top-level charging solution for single-cell batteries. In addition to fast charging, the Xiaomi 13 series will most likely come standard with Leica images. It will bring a very good imaging effect and shooting experience.
Previous there were reports that the Xiaomi 13 series will feature a 2K large screen. The first two models will come with standard 2K resolution, and the display effect can be greatly guaranteed.
