Xiaomi won’t be making 13S series
Ahead of the global launch of the Xiaomi 13 series, Xiaomi founder and CEO Lei Jun announced that the company will skip doing a semi-annual update in the form of the Xiaomi 13S series. As a reminder, Xiaomi launched its 12S and 12S Pro phones six months after the debut of the Xiaomi 12 series. The S-series phones offered subtle camera tweaks and newer chipsets in the same shell as their predecessors.

The Xiaomi 13 and Xiaomi 13 Pro were launched in China back in December and will make their global debut at MWC Barcelona over the weekend. The Xiaomi 13 Lite is still in the books and we can also expect some news on the Xiaomi 13 Ultra soon enough.
