In the second half of this year, Xiaomi released smartphones like the Xiaomi 12S series. In addition, we also got its flagship foldable smartphone, Xiaomi MIX Fold 2. The company’s flagships have been doing well. Xiaomi has further established a firm foothold in the high-end market. Furthermore, the company makes its fans very confident about the next new products. The industry is currently looking forward to the Xiaomi 13 series, its flagship of the year. As early as September this year, the Xiaomi 13 series already had a couple of certifications. This means that the device will be official pretty soon. If we go by the available speculations, this device should launch as early as November.
As the launch date for the Xiaomi 13 series gets close, more information hits the web. A popular Weibo tech blogger recently reveals more details about this device. The recent information from @DCS is consistent with the previous reports. The Xiaomi 13 series will first launch two versions – Xiaomi 13 and Xiaomi 13 Pro. The Xiaomi 13 will come with a Chinese OLED flexible straight screen. The size of this display is about 6.26 inches. The flexible packaging process of its 2.5D screen has made great progress.

In addition, the blogger claims that the arrangement of the camera’s lens modules remains the same. Also, the details of the design are very different from the online renders.
Xiaomi 13 hardware
Overall, the Xiaomi 13 will retain a similar design as its predecessor, Xiaomi 12 series. This device will continue the iconic line elements of the previous generation. This includes the triple cameras as well as the obvious “LEICA” word. In terms of hardware, this device will come with a TSMC 4nm processor. The performance of this chip shouldn’t be a problem at all. It will not be at the level of Apple Bionic chips but it will be the best Android smartphones have seen.

Furthermore, this flagship smartphone will come with 67W-120W super fast charging.

Xiaomi 13 / Pro series to debut the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2
As the end of the year draw closer, everyone’s attention is now on year-end flagships. Qualcomm releases its new generation flagship processor for Android flagships at the end of the year. Also, flagship smartphones with this chip also launch at the end of the year. Thus, there is so much attention on the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 as well as the Xiaomi 13. There are reports that the Xiaomi 13 will be the first to use the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoC. There has been a lot of “breaking news” regarding the Xiaomi 13 / Pro series. The chin of this new series will be very narrow.
The reports from @iceuniverse are also consistent with previous reports. However, the frame of the Xiaomi 13 series flagship is a surprise. This flagship will come with a “record-breaking chin”. At least this is what the company says. Further enquiries asked the blogger if the chin size will break Xiaomi’s record or the smartphone’s record. The blogger claims that it is going to break smartphone records. This means that the chin of the phone will reach an unprecedented width. This indicates that the phone’s screen ratio and visual effects will be amazing.
From the reports so far, November will be the launch month of this series. Nevertheless, there is no official confirmation from the company.
The Xiaomi 13 series like other flagships will come with top features. This series will also come with a flagship price tag. Nevertheless, it will remain cheaper than the more expensive flagships in the market. The speculations on the Xiaomi 13 series date back to last month. This is two months earlier than the previous generation, Xiaomi 12 series. This also suggests that the upcoming generation is getting more attention than the previous generation. However, the new generation of Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen2 chip will not be released until November. This means that the smartphone still has one month for the company to put the finishing touches. However, we don’t expect any significant changes. This close to the launch, almost every aspect of the new flagship is ready.
According to @DCS, “the main camera in the form has something to watch”. This device will still use a punch-hole screen. However, the specific design remains under wraps.
In other respects, according to previous information, the new Xiaomi 13 series flagship is expected to be equipped with a new generation Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 flagship processor. This new flagship processor will adopt a new “1+2+2+3” eight-core architecture design. The performance of the new processor will certainly improve. The super core of this chip will upgrade to Cortex X3. This core is 22% higher than the Cortex X2 performance. In addition, the large core will upgrade to the Cortex A155. Relative to the Cortex A710, the performance of this core improves by 5%. Also, energy efficiency also improves by 20%. In addition, the flagship smartphones will come with 67W fast charging. Well, the Pro model will support faster 120W charging. This will make up for any shortcomings that this device has.
It is reported that the new Xiaomi 13 series will debut as early as December. It is expected to use the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen2 flagship processor. We will wait and see for more details.
