Is the Xiaomi 13 Ultra really necessary?

Xiaomi is preparing to introduce 13 Ultra models in April. But is this model really necessary when there is 13 Pro?

Xiaomi introduced the new 13 Series last month. The Xiaomi 13 and Xiaomi 13 Pro models, which stand out with their cameras developed jointly with Leica, have attracted a lot of attention. On the other hand, the Chinese manufacturer is preparing to add a new and high-end model to its flagship series.

What differences can the Xiaomi 13 Ultra offer?

Promoting its new models in China, Xiaomi plans to make its global launch next month. With the MWC 2023 event to be held on February 27, the 13 Series will be launched internationally. According to the information received, Xiaomi will remove the covers on the 13 Ultra a month later.

The fact that the 13 Ultra will be introduced right after the Xiaomi 13 Pro brings some question marks. It is a matter of curiosity what kind of differences 13 Ultra will offer from 13 Pro, which already contains all the features that a flagship can offer.

For comparison, the Xiaomi 12 Pro was launched 7 months earlier than the Xiaomi 12S Ultra. Thus, the 12 Pro came with Snapdragon 8 Gen 1, while the Ultra could be equipped with the updated 8+ Gen 1. At the same time, the 12S Ultra was the first phone Xiaomi collaborated with Leica. For this reason, there was also an important camera difference between the two models.

Considering all this, we can easily say that there are serious differences between the 12 Pro and Ultra models. We are not sure what differences a possible 13 Ultra model, which will be introduced in April, can offer.

The current Xiaomi 13 and 13 Pro models already feature the latest Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processors and camera technology developed in partnership with Leica. In addition, the 13 Pro model also has the periscope zoom feature, which we know from the 12S Ultra.

In the meantime, what kind of innovations 13 Ultra can offer as a different model is quite open to discussion. While there is no new processor news from Snapdragon yet, we are eagerly awaiting the innovations of Xiaomi 13 Ultra. So what do you think about the innovations that the Xiaomi 13 Ultra can offer?
