Xiaomi today has announced the Xiaomi 13 Ultra, the latest result of Xiaomi and Leica’s collaboration. Flaunting a quad camera system centering the main camera with 1-inch sensor and a variable aperture, a WQHD+ display, along with premium flagship Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 performance.
Xiaomi 13 Ultra Features
Xiaomi 13 Ultra is equipped with a quad camera system with Leica optical lens covering focal lengths ranging from 12mm (ultra-wide angle), 23mm (wide-angle), 75mm (telephoto), to the new 120mm (super-telephoto), as well as the extra 46mm and 240mm lengths through the In-Sensor-Zoom. The smartphone’s professional camera setting offers variable aperture.
Three of Xiaomi 13 Ultra’s cameras feature an aperture wider than ƒ/2.0, which brings in more light and a soft, shallow depth of field, and allows for shorter shutter times, thus quicker capturing of natural and unmissable moments. Flaunting an ultra-large 1-inch IMX989 sensor and a new physical two-stop aperture switching between ƒ/1.9 and ƒ/4.0, the main camera offers content creators more freedom in customizing the exposures based on different scenarios.
Inspired by the “hyperfocal distance” shooting method commonly used by street photographers, Xiaomi 13 Ultra also brings a new Fast Shot mode that allows taking focus-free snapshots by setting the focus point manually, and later starting and capturing the moment in just 0.8s.
Xiaomi 13 Ultra has fully optimized the RAW workflow, and more algorithms are migrated to the RAW domain. The main camera supports 50MP RAW, bringing a higher imaging resolution, while providing multi-frame 14-bit UltraRAW. Camera profiles will be created by Adobe, providing a better starting point for post-production.
In terms of display, Xiaomi 13 Ultra sports a 6.73″ pro-grade WQHD+ display with excellent color accuracy and up to 2600 nits peak brightness. This display is also calibrated according to the new CIE 2015 colorimetry, which supports perfect automatic color management to ensure accurate and consistent color presentation across different displays from Xiaomi devices released recently.
Xiaomi 13 Ultra also supports end-to-end experience supported by Dolby Vision, capturing with vivid colors, astonishing contrast and brightness, along with a panoramic view of rich details in dark and bright areas, while offering users the opportunity to share their own creative content in UGC communities that support Dolby Vision.
