Xiaomi 13 Ultra tilted to get a significantly improved periscope camera
Xiaomi 13 and Xiaomi 13 Pro equipped with Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoC were launched in China earlier this month. The Chinese tech giant is now expected to release the Xiaomi 13 lineup in global markets next year. The Xiaomi 13 Ultra is also believed to be part of the global lineup. A reliable tipster has now claimed that the performance of its periscope camera will “shock everyone”. Not much else is known about this handset at this point, however, rumors suggest it might come with high-speed LPDDR5x RAM and UFS 4.0 storage.
According to a Publish by tipster Kartikey Singh (Twitter: @That_Kartikey), the Xiaomi 13 Ultra will come with a significantly improved periscope camera. He had previously claims that Samsung had become complacent about the Galaxy S series’ camera zoom capabilities.
Singh estimates that in 2023, Samsung could be overtaken by one of its competitors. However, the tipster did not delve into the specific details of the Xiaomi 13 Ultra’s periscope camera. We can expect this upcoming Xiaomi smartphone to offer better zoom performance than the Galaxy S22 Ultra, which comes with 3x and 10x optical zoom capabilities.
In related news, tipster Digital Chat Station has shared the alleged storage and memory configuration details of the Xiaomi 13 Ultra. This smartphone could come with 16GB of LPDDR5x RAM and 512GB or 1TB of UFS 4.0 inbuilt storage.
Xiaomi had recently launched the Xiaomi 13 series in China, including the vanilla Xiaomi 13 and the Xiaomi 13 Pro. In terms of camera, the Pro model gets a triple rear camera setup with a 50-megapixel 1-inch Sony IMX989 main sensor. There’s also a floating 75mm 50-megapixel telephoto sensor and a 50-megapixel wide-angle sensor. It also has a 32-megapixel selfie camera on the front.
