Xiaomi 13T and Xiaomi 13T Pro: Official Updates & Specs

Xiaomi 13T and Xiaomi 13T Pro

Still a midrange or already a flagship killer? Both, because Xiaomi 13T and Xiaomi 13T Pro will have very similar features with only minor differences, as the detailed specs and render images now show for the first time. Both also benefit from the first Leica optimization of the Xiaomi T series and the best cameras to date in the cheaper Xiaomi flagship offshoots of the second half of the year.

Official Updates

The Xiaomi flagships will probably be launched on September 1, 2023, for the second half of 2023. As with the Xiaomi 12T and Xiaomi 12T Pro last year ( available here from Amazon for around 500 dollars ), the successors will again be available as Duo will be launched and will be closely related to the Redmi K60 series, which Xiaomi calls “performance flagships”, specifically the Redmi K60 Ultra that was launched in China last week. In contrast to this, both get donated a massive camera upgrade that will establish a Leica camera with telephoto for the first time in Xiaomi’s T series. The difference to the predecessors could not be greater, especially since both Xiaomi 13T models are apparently supposed to benefit from the same Leica triple cam.

Similarities between Xiaomi 13T and Xiaomi 13T Pro

This Leica camera is based on a 1/1.28 inch 50MP Sony IMX707 with OIS, 1.22um pixel size, 2.44um pixel size with pixel binning, 24mm focal length equivalent and F/1.9 7P optics. There is also a 50MP 2x telephoto with 50mm focal length, 0.61um pixel size, F/1.9 aperture and 5P lens – based on an Omnivision OV50D sensor, and a 12MP ultra wide angle with 15mm focal length equivalent, F/2.2. Aperture and 1.12um pixel size. On the front you will find a 20MP selfie cam with 26 mm focal length, F/2.2 aperture and 0.8 µm pixel size.

According to the leak, video recordings are possible up to a maximum of 4K 30 fps, which is a bit surprising because the Redmi K60 Ultra also supports 8K. The display in both Xiaomi 13T variants is a 10-bit 6.67-inch “CrystalRes” AMOLED with a 2,712 x 1,220 pixel resolution, 446 ppi pixel density, a maximum refresh rate of 144 Hz and a typical brightness of 500 nits. A maximum of 1,200 nits (HBM) and 2,600 nits peak brightness and a contrast of 5,000,000:1 are possible, 100 percent DCI-P3 are covered. 30, 60, 90, 120 and 144 Hz are supported as dynamic refresh rates. 

In the black or “Alpine Blue” chassis (the latter with a fake leather back) is a 5,000 mAh battery that can be charged with a maximum of 120 watts. For the first time, the Xiaomi T series is dust and waterproof according to IP68. The dual SIM device supports 5G, Wi-Fi 7, Bluetooth 5.4 and NFC and measures 162.2 x 75.7 x 8.49 mm each. 

Differences between Xiaomi 13T and Xiaomi 13T Pro

Both do not differ in terms of appearance or most of the specs. If the information from Deallabs is correct, only the processor, RAM and memory configuration will differentiate the Pro model from the regular Xiaomi 13T. According to this, the Xiaomi 13T gets a Mediatek Dimensity 8200 Ultra SoC, which is more assigned to the mid-range segment, which was also used in the Redmi Note 12T Pro  and the China-Only Civi 3 , but is still rather unknown in this country.

Only with the Pro model, based on the Mediatek Dimensity 9200+, do you get current flagship killer performance like the Redmi K60 Ultra. While the regular 13T will apparently only be available in Asia, America, and Europe with 8 GB RAM and 256 GB, Xiaomi wants to pack the Xiaomi 13T Pro with 16 GB RAM and 1 TB storage. This is still less than in China with a maximum of 24 GB RAM, but the performance of this year’s Xiaomi 13T Pro model should also meet the highest demands. The last difference: The Xiaomi 13T should weigh 197 grams, the Pro model weighs slightly more at 206 grams.
