Xiaomi 13 Pro to detail global launch on February 26
The Xiaomi 13 Pro, which was unveiled in China in December, will take the next step towards a global launch on February 26. Xiaomi’s India division today announced that the 13 Pro will launch globally on February 26 at the Mobile World Congress (MWC), including India. The event will be streamed live from 21:30 IST (16:00 UTC) on Xiaomi’s official website and social media accounts.
The press release we received does not mention the Xiaomi 13, so it is unclear whether it will be part of the MWC event or make its global debut later. We will hopefully find out in the coming days.
The Xiaomi 13 Pro is powered by the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoC and comes with up to 12GB of RAM and 512GB of onboard storage. It runs Android 13-based MIUI 14 out of the box and packs a 6.73” QHD+ 120Hz LTPO OLED display protected by Gorilla Glass Victus.
The display has HDR10+ and Dolby Vision support and a fingerprint reader underneath for biometric authentication. It also has a centered hole for the 32 MP selfie camera.
Around the back, the Xiaomi 13 Pro has a triple camera system consisting of 50.3MP primary (with OIS), 50MP telephoto and 50MP ultra-wide units. The camera setup also uses a Leica-branded lens.
Keeping the whole package running is a 4,820 mAh battery with 120W cable and 50W wireless charging. It also supports 10W reverse wireless charging.
The Xiaomi 13 also has the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chip at the helm, but it comes with a smaller, lower-resolution screen, packs a smaller battery with slower wired charging, and has a different camera setup.
