Xiaomi 13 Ultra: Specifications, features, and more
The Xiaomi 13 Ultra draws inspiration from cameras, with a circular lens-like camera module, a metal frame, and a back panel covered in leather for the Black and Green models.
Xiaomi 13 Ultra features a 6.73-inch QHD+ AMOLED display with an adaptive refresh rate of 120Hz and 240Hz touch sampling rate. Furthermore, the smartphone offers a peak brightness of up to 2600 nits, 1920 PWM dimming, with support for HDR10+ and Dolby Vision.
Powered by Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset, the Xiaomi 13 Ultra comes with up to 12GB LPDDR5X RAM paired with up to 1TB UFS 4.0 internal storage. The 13 Ultra boasts a 5000mAh battery with support for 90W wired charging and 50W wireless charging. The smartphone comes with two co-processors – Surge P2 charging chip and Surge G1 battery management chip, which enables different battery health features.
Xiaomi 13 Ultra features four rear cameras, each with a 50MP resolution and Leica optics. These cameras cover six different focal lengths, including 23mm, 12mm ultrawide, 75mm 3.2x telephoto, 120mm super-telephoto, and 46mm and 240mm through In-Sensor-Zoom. The primary camera uses a 1-inch IMX989 sensor with a two-stop aperture switch between ƒ/1.9 and ƒ/4.0. The lens is co-engineered with Leica.
The three additional cameras have apertures wider than ƒ/2.0, allowing for more light, a soft depth of field, and faster capturing of moments. The smartphone also supports Dolby Vision recording and playback, 14-bit Ultra RAW photos, 8K video, and 10-bit Log.
The smartphone offers Fast Shot mode, inspired by the “hyperfocal distance” shooting method, enabling quick focus-free snapshots by manually setting the focus point and capturing the moment in just 0.8 seconds.
Xiaomi has also made a case for the Xiaomi 13 Ultra that promises to enhance the smartphone’s camera experience by providing a grip, a traditional shutter release button, and a zoom lever, mimicking the feel of using a standalone camera. Additionally, the case also includes a mount that allows users to attach filters over the phone’s lenses for added creative options.
