Xiaomi 13 and 13 Pro

Nov 30

As we enter the final month of 2022, Xiaomi is launching its new Xiaomi 13 and 13 Pro flagship smartphones during its product launch event happening this week. This could be Xiaomi’s first smartphone with Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chip and it could be released globally including in Malaysia during the first few months of 2023.

From the teasers, it looks like the Xiaomi 13 series will come with a flat-screen and flat-edge appearance which is similar to the current iPhone 12, iPhone 13 and iPhone 14 series. One of their teasers on Weibo has talked about using new innovative materials such as “skin/nano-tech” which we are guessing is vegan leather.

The full spec sheet has yet to be disclosed, but both devices are expected to have Leica co-engineered cameras, and they will most likely be the first Xiaomi x Leica smartphones to be sold outside of China. The Xiaomi 12S series is the company's first smartphone partnership with Leica, but it is exclusively available in China. In other areas, including Malaysia, we received the Xiaomi 12T and 12T Pro, which have a greater 200MP resolution camera but lack the Leica "improvement."

Hopefully, the Xiaomi 13 will be available in Malaysia soon. The current Xiaomi 12 series was first presented in China at the end of December last year, but it was not released globally until March of this year. Expect these Xiaomi flagship smartphones to be more expensive than previously. The Xiaomi 12 (8GB + 128GB) was launched at a starting price of RM2,899, while the Xiaomi 12 Pro (12GB+256GB) was priced at RM3,899.

With the limited information now, what do you think about this phone?
