In a series of posts on Weibo, Xiaomi shared images of the Xiaomi 13 and Xiaomi 13 Pro that showed off a large Leica-branded camera bumps as well as the design. The Xiaomi 13 seems to have boxed edges that are similar to the iPhone 14, while the Xiaomi 13 Pro features a tapered edge.

The company said that both the Xiaomi 13 and Xiaomi 13 Pro will be powered by the top-of-the-line Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset and each will feature a telephoto camera capable of 3.26x optical zoom. The Pro model will get a larger sensor taking the form a huge 1-inch sensor for the main camera.
