The flagship Xiaomi 13 Pro made its global debut today during the Mobile World Congress (MWC) being held in Barcelona. With this device – which launched in China in December – the company is banking on a 1-inch main sensor, Leica lenses and 120W fast charging to make it a competitor to the Samsung Galaxy series.


With Android devices nearing each other in performance and display sections, the camera has been a major differentiator in today’s flagships. Xiaomi uses a massive 1-inch 50-megapixel Sony IMX989 sensor with an f/1.9 aperture to get the best and brightest shots in all lighting conditions. A few phone makers, including Xiaomi, Vivo, and Sharp, have included this sensor in a few devices. The camera is capable of recording video in 8K resolution – 4K resolution at 60 fps if recording in Dolby Vision.

There’s also a 50-megapixel telephoto lens with a “floating lens” element, which translates to 3.2x lossless zoom. Additionally, the device has another 50-megapixel sensor in an ultra-wide avatar. The 13 Pro has a 32-megapixel front camera with a night mode and dual-frame modes (0.8x and 1x).

This whole camera package with Leica lenses is housed in a massive square housing on the back. And while we’ve seen square camera bumps in many phones, this one looks a bit different due to its size.

India, where the phone maker has topped the phone shipments charts in recent years, ceded the top spot to Samsung in the last quarter.
