Chinese brand, Xiaomi, will officially release its flagship digital series for the year tomorrow. The Xiaomi 13 series will have at least two models at launch including the Xiaomi 13 and Xiaomi 13 Pro. These mobile phones will be officially released at 19:00 (Chinese Time) on December 11th. However, these mobile phones will not be alone. The company will also announce the new Android skin, MIUI 14. Over the past few weeks, there have been several leaks and speculations about the Xiaomi 13 and MIUI 14. To make things more interesting, Xiaomi has been releasing official teasers to confirm the features that these mobile phones will support.
In the most recent release of teasers from Xiaomi, the company confirms that the Xiaomi 13 series will support stereo dual speakers and also Dolby Atmos. Xiaomi’s CEO, Lei Jun also had some words to say regarding this feature. He said
“The loudspeaker effect is very good. When listening to music, watching movies and playing games, I have a very good experience.”
According to the official warm-up, the front of Xiaomi 13 is slightly 2.5D. In addition, the back is four-curved, with a width of 71.5mm. The company claims that this design makes the mobile phone comfortable to hold. This series will also come with a 4642mm² super large VC liquid cooling. In addition, the entire Xiaomi 13 series supports the IP68 standard, which is also the highest level of dustproof and waterproof standards.
In terms of hardware, the Xiaomi 13 series will come with Qualcomm’s latest chip, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoC. This chip supports LPDDR5X memory and UFS 4.0 flash memory. In terms of imaging, the entire Xiaomi 13 series will use a Leica 75mm humanistic telephoto lens with an f/2.0 super large aperture. Also, this flagship series will adopt a nano-skin technology and has versions such as mountain blue, white and wild green colour options.
Xiaomi 13 series keeps the temperature low during gaming
While there are dedicated gaming mobile phones, most regular mobile phones are now incorporating some features that make these mobile phones more tolerant of gaming. The Xiaomi 13 series is no different. We earlier mentioned that this device comes with a 4642mm² super large VC liquid cooling. This is a cooling system for gaming mobile phones. From recent tests, it appears that Xiaomi’s decision to put such a cooling system on this device will pay off.
According to Lei Jun, founder and CEO of Xiaomi, the performance of this flagship during gaming is solid. He claims that when playing Genshin Impact, a demanding free-to-play action role-playing game, the image quality of the game runs at full frame. Also, the temperature of the device remains at 43°C and the brightness does not decrease during the whole process. Looking at Genshin Impact’s graphic demand, this performance is simply amazing.
Gizchina News of the week
Lei Jun claims that the performance of this mobile phone is comparable to that of an e-sports phone. The processor, memory and flash memory are all top-of-the-line. The memory and flash memory ushered in the biggest upgrade in three years.
According to data from Lei Jun, in terms of GPU performance and power consumption tests, the peak performance of the GPU of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 far exceeds that of the Bionic A16. He claims that the SD8 Gen2 GPU is leading by as much as 25%. “Under such top performance, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2’s excellent energy efficiency performance makes the power consumption of the motherboard only 8.0W. This is almost the same as that of the Bionic A16”. The massive heat sink covers almost half of the interior of this device. It is very efficient in heat dissipation.
Special colour option
While the Xiaomi 13 series will have multiple colour options, this series will also have a “special” colour option. Lei Jun, the founder, chairman and CEO of Xiaomi, announced the official special colour option of the Xiaomi 13 series. The colour is Yuanshan blue. Yuanshan Blue is a special combination of different shades of blue. However, it generally appears like sky blue colour. This special version also seems to have a leather rear feel.
Regarding the special colour option, Lei Jun said
“The distant mountains are stacked with shadows and blue sky, and a touch of Qingdai is in the hand”.
His words above are basically describing the blue colour and the somewhat leather feel. He further reveals that this mobile phone uses a nano-skin tech which is resistant to wear as well as dirt. This means that users do not have to worry about the device losing colour or attracting dirt. This not only makes it look good but also feels good.
In addition to the blue option, Lei Jun also announced the white colour option. He says, “the white version is also good.”
Xiaomi 13 series is very popular
This device is currently on reservation and the Jingdong link reveals that the standard version has over 220,000 reservations. The Xiaomi 13 Pro also reservations also exceed 200,000. The Xiaomi 13 is a small screen mobile phone with a 6.2-inch display that has thin bezels. The left, right and upper bezels are only 1.61 mm wide. The chin which is the widest part is only 1.81 mm. The iPhone 14 and 14 Pro has bezels that are 2.4 mm and 2.15 mm wide respectively. This new flagship from Xiaomi will bring a very strong visual impact. Also, the single punch-hole design of the Xiaomi 13 will make the screen visual effect far better than that of the iPhone 14. We can say that this device comes with an all round “upgrade”.
