Xiaomi will announce its Xiaomi 13 smartphones on Thursday. The smartphones are supposedly the first high-end models from the manufacturer with the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 and MediaTek Dimensity 9200 socs.
The announcement is scheduled for Thursday around noon Dutch time, according to the invitation from the company. In addition to the Xiaomi 13 smartphones, the manufacturer will also show Miui 14 there, its skin for Android based on Android 13. Upgrades for existing phones will probably follow.
There will probably be several models, including a Pro model. The regular model will have a flat screen and flat sides, according to a render that a Xiaomi executive has already released. The phone is around 155×71.5mm in size. The phone was seen before on renders. The device has a border of 1.81 mm at the bottom; the other sides have a border of 1.61mm. There is a camera hole in the center of the top.
The phones are coming now, because Qualcomm and MediaTek just their new socs for high-end phones have announced. Competitor Vivo also announced phones with these socks. Thursday’s announcement is for the release in China. Xiaomi often releases its smartphones later in Europe. Besides phones and Miui, more new products are expected to arrive from Xiaomi on Thursday, including its first desktop, a router, a projector and wireless earbuds.
