In a post on Twitter, Lei Jun stated that the “next Ultra iteration” will hit the global market
Rumors point out that the device may adopt the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2, Qualcomm's premium chipset that will be unveiled in November this year.
Although it may have a new processor, the expectation is that the Xiaomi 13 Ultra will inherit several of the characteristics of the Xiaomi 12S Ultra
The Xiaomi 13 Ultra should still have more improvements over the rear cameras, such as a periscope sensor and, being a flagship of the Chinese brand, the return of Leica lenses
In addition to the cameras, the Xiaomi 13 Ultra should repeat certain visual aspects of the Xiaomi 12S Ultra
For example, the phone might have a curved display with extremely thin edges and a hole centered at the top for the front camera.
To keep up with the power of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2, the phone must also have more robust RAM options. As such, the device may debut with Android 13 under a new version of Xiaomi's MIUI interface.
