- A new post has reaffirmed that Xiaomi will still launch the Xiaomi 13 flagship
- Previous rumours tipped the phone to launch as the Xiaomi 14 instead
- The new tip pegs the phone to offer 120W fast charging, and more
Xiaomi is expected to launch its next flagship smartphone in the coming weeks. The new smartphone has seen some amount of conjecture already, with various tips and rumours from the supply chain offering purported specifications and even a change of name. Now, amid rumours of Xiaomi skipping the ‘13′ moniker on its flagship smartphone, a new post from noted tipster Digital Chat Station on China-based social media platform, Weibo, has appeared to have refuted the rumours — instead offering a host of specifications that the new Xiaomi flagship will come with.
Xiaomi 13 specifications (tipped)
According to the Weibo post, the Xiaomi 13 smartphone is likely to come with the recently unveiled Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 flagship SoC from Qualcomm — which has been confirmed for a while now. Along with the top-rated chip, the smartphone is expected to feature a 6.2-inch display with 2K (or 1440p) screen resolution — which would be an upgrade over what the previous generation flagship, the Xiaomi 12, offered.
Along with this, the Xiaomi 13 may come with 120W fast charging — up from 67W on the Xiaomi 12. It could also offer a 50MP primary rear camera with optical image stabilisation, powered by a Sony IMX 8-series image sensor.
Most of the specifications align with previous rumours, especially one based on the retail packaging of the upcoming phone that tips it to be the Xiaomi 14 instead. While no reason is as yet known for such a potential renaming, it could be that Xiaomi may look to align the version of its flagship phone with the version of its custom Android interface — MIUI.
Smartphone makers have previously skipped generations in flagship phones — such as Apple skipping the iPhone 9 for iPhone X (read as ‘10′), or OnePlus skipping OnePlus 4 after the 3T, to launch OnePlus 5. The upcoming Xiaomi phone has already received BIS certification in India, so it should be available locally in the months to come.
