[Exclusive] Xiaomi 13 Pro India launch schedule, expected Q1 2023 roadmap revealed
Xiaomi 13 Pro is expected to arrive in India soon. Gadgets 360 has exclusive details about the Xiaomi 13 Pro India launch schedule along with the company’s Q1 2023 roadmap. The Chinese tech giant launched the Xiaomi 13 series in December 2022 in China. It is now preparing for the global launch of the Xiaomi 13 Pro, which is expected to take place in March 2023. Ahead of the global launch of its latest flagship phones, Xiaomi is expected to announce its partnership with Leica for the global market at Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2023. Last year, the company collaborated with Leica to tune the Xiaomi 12S series camera. The partnership has expanded further for the Xiaomi 13 series, which includes the vanilla Xiaomi 13 and the Xiaomi 13 Pro.
Our sources revealed that Xiaomi will globally showcase its partnership with the legendary camera maker for the Xiaomi 13 series. Following the announcement, the company is expected to unveil the Xiaomi 13 Pro for the global market. The company is also reportedly launching the flagship smartphone as the successor to the Xiaomi 12 Pro in India.
Tipster Yogesh Brar, one of our sources for this story, has confirmed that the Xiaomi 13 Pro India launch event will take place in March 2023. The exact launch date remains unknown.
Our sources also revealed that Xiaomi has big plans for MWC 2023. The company may be showcasing some innovative camera technology it has been working on with Leica. One of the possible announcements could concern the use of a variable aperture for smartphone cameras, which could be used in the Xiaomi 13 Ultra. Brar corroborated the details shared by our sources.
Last year, the company introduced such a concept where a Leica M-series lens module was attached to the Xiaomi 12S Ultra. According to the concept, the Xiaomi 12S Ultra has two 1-inch sensors, and with the M-series lens attached, it’s supposed to reduce light loss while capturing sharper images. We might see more details about that at MWC 2023.
Xiaomi India Q1 2023 roadmap
Our sources revealed that Xiaomi is working on launching a new Redmi phone in India which is expected to debut in January. The device is considered an affordable offering and could fall below the recently launched Redmi Note 12 series. We can assume that this is one of the Redmi Prime series phones. The company’s Poco sub-brand is also reportedly working on the launch of the Poco X5 Pro, which will be a rebadged Redmi Note 12 Pro Speed Edition from China.
In February 2023, Xiaomi might launch a new notebook with an Nvidia RTX 2050 graphics card. The model might sport a 15.6-inch IPS display and offer 16GB of LPDDR5 RAM. Based on the listed specs, we suspect the laptop could be the RedmiBook Pro 15, which launched last year in China.
Tipster Ishan Agarwal had claims that the company would launch two new laptops in India, namely the Xiaomi Notebook Pro Max and the Xiaomi Notebook Ultra Max. We could not confirm if the Xiaomi Notebook launched with an Nvidia RTX 2050 graphics card is the same as the tipster is referring to.
In February, the company is also expected to launch more ecosystem products in India under the Xiaomi and Redmi brands. We can expect more wearables to be available in India next month. The first quarter is expected to end with the launch of the Xiaomi 13 Pro, which will be the company’s first flagship phone for the Indian market in 2023. The launch schedule for the aforementioned products may change due to supply chain, COVID- 19 situation or any other factor.
