• Innovation Xiaomi brings to MWC its augmented reality glasses, but they are not for sale

Xiaomi's most advanced mobile for this 2023 already has a name, photo and price. The Chinese company has announced today, at an international event, the Xiaomi 13 Ultra, a phone that completes the Xiaomi 13 and 13 Pro presented in February and that again relies on the company Leica to make the camera stand out.

The phone is built on Qualcomm's Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 platform with 12 or 16GB of RAM and 5G support. The processor has a liquid cooling system that helps extend the time that the smartphone can operate at full capacity, record video in 4K or maintain the brightness of the screen at its maximum.


What differentiates it from other high-end phones this year will be precisely its screen, a 6.7-inch AMOLED panel and resolution of 3,200 x 1,440 pixels with a refresh rate of 120 Hz.

The panel is the brightest that exists right now in mobile telephony, with a maximum brightness of 1300 nits and peaks of 2600 nits when playing HDR content. As a comparison, suffice it to point out that the iPhone 14 Pro, for example, has a maximum brightness with HDR of 1,600 nits and can reach 2,000 nits in very specific conditions (outdoors) and not for a long time.


To the new screen is added a camera module much more advanced than that of the previous generation and that again relies on the German firm Leica both for the design of the lenses and for the processing of the image.

The camera module covers focal lengths of 12mm (ultra wide), 23mm (wide), 75mm (telephoto), and a new 120mm (super-telephoto), as well as 46mm and 240mm via cropping on the different sensors.

They also have variable opening. The main sensor, 1 inch in size, has a two-stop physical aperture that allows you to alternate between /1.9 and /4.0, to let in more or less light and vary the depth of field, as traditional cameras do.

Xiaomi has also worked on camera speed. A Fast Shot mode allows users to launch the app and take the first photo in less than 0.8 seconds. As usual, the phone also has several processing modes and filters created together with Leica to give the images a finish close to that achieved with conventional cameras and / or special films.

The resolution of all rear cameras is 50 megapixels. The phone also has, of course, a front camera that in this case has 32 megapixels of resolution.

It also supports fast charging up to 90W. The battery, 5,000 mAh, can be charged to 100% in just 35 minutes if you use an adapter capable of providing that power and the Xiaomi 13 Ultra also adds a new hibernation mode, which is automatically activated when the battery drops to 1% and limits applications in the background. Allow the device to standby for up to 60 minutes or make a phone call for up to 12 minutes.

The phone will go on sale in China at an equivalent price of 800 euros. The device will arrive in Spain in June and will be available in black and green.
