Xiaomi 13 series launch timeline tipped, may launch earlier than expected

Highlights
  • Xiaomi 13 series is expected to launch ahead of the usual December cycle.
  • Xiaomi 13 series is speculated to debut in November and is tipped to arrive with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen2 chipset.
  • The lineup is said to arrive with a custom charging IC with support for 100W fast charging and 50W wireless charging.

Xiaomi 12S series launched in India recently and included three models: Xiaomi 12S, Xiaomi 12S Pro and Xiaomi 12S Ultra. These are the brand’s first models with Leica optics and ship with the mighty Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen1 chipset. The Ultra model is the first with the Sony 1-inch sensor that is claimed to produce impressive pictures. Now, it appears that Xiaomi is moving past these and focusing on the Xiaomi 13 series. We’ve already come across reports suggesting the Xiaomi 12 successor will arrive earlier than before.

Xiaomi 13 series is speculated to debut in November and might arrive with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset, which is touted to bring performance and GPU improvements. As with every year, we believe there will be more than one Xiaomi 13 series phone at launch.

Xiaomi 13 series specifications 

Xiaomi 13 series is expected to launch later this year in China and later expand to other markets globally. There are speculations the lineup will debut ahead of the usual launch cycle. Noted leakster DigitalChatStation has revealed some key specifications of the Xiaomi 13 series. 

The tipster claims that Xiaomi 13 series will launch in November 2022 in China. This is one month ahead of the usual cycle in December and days after the Qualcomm Summit. What this means is that Qualcomm may also push its Snapdragon 8 Gen2 chipset announcement by a month, probably early November. It appears that Xiaomi wants to be the first to launch a flagship with the new Qualcomm flagship chipset in November.

Furthermore, DCS says that Xiaomi will launch the upcoming premium Xiaomi 13 series with a single-cell battery. The Xiaomi 13 will come equipped with the in-house charging IC with support for 100W fast charging and 50W wireless charging. It is expected that the company will include the Surge P1 chip, which is said to be the only 100W single-cell chip solution in the industry. That’s pretty it about the Xiaomi 13 series at the moment but since we’re months away from the launch, we can expect more details to surface online.
