Last August, we reviewed the Xiaomi 12S Ultra which boasted the pioneering integration of a 1 inch sensor. Regrettably, this device was not made available in international markets.

However, we are now presented with the Xiaomi 13 Pro, which features a similar configuration as the 12S Ultra but with notable advancements to its wide angle and telephoto cameras. Boasting a 1″ 50 MP sensor, the device captures more light and achieves superior clarity, especially in dim or poorly lit conditions. In addition, the device offers two distinct shooting styles: Leica authentic or vibrant. Furthermore, the 50 MP telephoto and wide angle cameras provide users with exceptional photographic versatility.

In terms of physical dimensions, the phone boasts a height of 162.9mm, a width of 74.6mm, a thickness of 8.38mm, and a weight of 229g. It is available in two configurations – 12GB+256GB and 12GB+512GB, which are equipped with LPDDR5X 8533Mbps RAM and UFS 4.0 storage.

Powered by Snapdragon® 8 Gen 2 Mobile Platform, this device is built with a 4nm power-efficient manufacturing process, ensuring optimal power utilization. The WQHD+ 6.73” AMOLED display, with 3D-Curved design, features a resolution of 3200×1440 and a 20:9 aspect ratio, with AdaptiveSync Pro display and LTPO technology. The display also supports a dynamic refresh rate of 1-120Hz, and a touch sampling rate of up to 240Hz. The brightness level peaks at 1900 nits, with a typical brightness of 1200 nits, and features Pro HDR display, Dolby Vision® and HDR10+.

The device comes equipped with Smart 120W HyperCharge, capable of charging the phone to 100% in just 19 minutes (in Boost mode), or 24 minutes (in Standard mode). Additionally, it features 50W wireless turbo charging, and 10W reverse wireless charging.

The phone supports both 5G SA/NSA networks, with a wide range of network bands that include n1/n3/n5/n7/n8/n20/n28/n38/n40/n41/n66/n71/n75/n77/n78/n79 for 5G, and B1/2/3/4/5/7/8/12/13/17/18/19/20/25/26/28/32/66 for 4G LTE FDD, and B38/39/40/41/42/43 for 4G LTE TDD, and B1/2/4/5/6/8/19 for WCDMA, and 850/900/1800/1900 MHz for GSM. It also supports 4×4 MIMO.
