Xiaomi has officially confirmed the Xiaomi 13 Ultra camera sensors. Before we get into it, do note that the phone will launch on April 18, in both China and globally. And yes, Xiaomi will livestream the event.

These are the camera sensors the Xiaomi 13 Ultra will use

For the main camera, the Xiaomi 13 Ultra will retain a 1-inch camera sensor from the ‘Pro’ model. That is Sony’s IMX989 sensor, which is also used by the OPPO Find X6 Pro and Vivo X90 Pro, in addition to several other phones.

Three other cameras will be included on the back, and in all three cases we’ll get the Sony IMX858 sensors. 3x and 5x telephoto shots will be an option, and considering a periscope telephoto camera will also be available, crazy zoom shots will also be a possibility.

Xiaomi also teased advanced noise-reduction features and improved HDR. So, we’re getting a wide-angle main camera (1-inch sensor), an ultrawide unit, a telephoto camera, and a periscope telephoto camera.

Leica lenses will also be a part of the package

On top of that, each of those cameras will utilize Leica’s lenses. Needless to say, this does sound very promising. The Xiaomi 13 Pro had an outstanding camera setup, and capabilities, but the ‘Ultra’ could take things to a whole new level.

Some rumors even indicated that the main camera will utilize a variable aperture. Xiaomi didn’t mention anything regarding that thus far, but it would be an amazing addition if true. It would make this camera even more versatile, and enable it to adapt to pretty much every scenario.

The Xiaomi 13 Ultra will utilize the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoC, and a 6.73-inch QHD+ AMOLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate. 90W wired charging will also be on offer, as will 50W wireless charging. Android 13 will come pre-installed with MIUI 14, and more.
