Xiaomi 13 Ultra has been officially announced in China. The device is a direct competitor to the devices like the S23 Ultra, OnePlus 11, and iPhone 14 Pro Max. Last year in July, its predecessor, the Xiaomi 12S Ultra was launched. However, the device never made its way to the global scene. It was a shame considering the sheer hardware capability and technological prowess it had.
However, this will be changing with the launch of Xiaomi’s latest behemoth, the Xiaomi 13 Ultra. Xiaomi officially confirmed the global launch of the device after the initial launch in China. The device has several improvements over its predecessor.
Xiaomi 13 Ultra Design
The design is plain and simple. There is a huge circular camera module that houses the beast camera system of the device which we’ll come to later. The front is also what you’d expect from a top-end flagship device. Minimal bezels, curved OLED, it’s got all the goods. You’ll get to choose from two color options with a leather finish, Olive Green and Black and a White glass finish as well.

The Chinese tech giants bring their A-game when it comes to their Ultra devices. These are one of the most stacked devices you can get in the whole world.
