The Xiaomi 13T series is now official and as you’d expect from Xiaomi, these phones are no short of excitement as the company has included Leica certified camera glasses for the very first time in the T series flagships, though the Xiaomi 13 series is still superior when it comes to hardware specifications.
Comprising the Xiaomi 13T and 13T Pro, these phones are powered by Mediatek Dimensity chipsets with the former having the Mediatek Dimensity 8200 Ultra chipset, and the latter having a more powerful Mediatek Dimensity 9200+ chipset.
Also, both phones are IP68 water and dust resistant, and Xiaomi commits to 4 years of Android OS updates and 5 years of security patches for these phones.
Leading the series, the Xiaomi 13T Pro comes with significant hardware upgrades from its predecessor, such as its 6.67-inch CrystalRes AMOLED display that now refreshes at a faster 144Hz, while pushing a peak brightness of 2600 nits and a PWM Dimming frequency of 2880Hz.
The phone’s storage configuration will excite those who stores a lot of media, as it comes with up to 16GB RAM and 1TB of storage.
Juiced by a 5000mAh battery, the Xiaomi 13T Pro will as usual support Xiaomi’s 120W HyperCharge.
