Xiaomi 13 Leaks: Codenames have been revealed [Updated: June 15]

New flagship device of Xiaomi has been leaked on IMEI Database!

The Xiaomi 13 is the new upcoming smartphone of Xiaomi that was very recently spotted on the IMEI Database. The phone appears to be coming soon, and it will likely compete with some of the other popular phones on the market. Details about this phone are still scarce at this point, but we will update you when more information becomes available.

Xiaomi 13 Codenames

The codenames of Xiaomi 13 will be completely different from past Xiaomi series. The new codenames also come from gods and goddesses, just like in old Xiaomi devices. However, we see that Xiaomi has given Chinese mythological names to its code names since the Civi 1S device. The codenames of the Xiaomi 13 series are going to same way according to this change.

The codenames of the new Xiaomi 13 series will be “fuxi” and “nuwa”. Fuxi is known as the first emperor of China and the ancestor of humans. When we look at the codename, we can see that the Xiaomi 13 series devices are quite ambitious. The goddess who is Fuxi’s wife or sister is “nüwa”. Fuxi and Nuwa have similar mythological features. Since Fuxi was formed before Nuwa, we think that the codename Fuxi belongs to Xiaomi 13 Pro and the codename nuwa belongs to Xiaomi 13.

In addition, the Xiaomi 13 series is being tested with Android 13 instead of Android 12. This shows that it will definitely come out of the box with Android 13.

The first MIUI builds of Fuxi and Nuwa were taken on 22.5.20. The first MIUI builds of the Xiaomi 12 series were taken on 21.6.30. There is 1 month difference. This 1-month difference indicates that the device may be released in November instead of December. In addition, these devices may be the first devices to come out of box with Android 13 after the Google Pixel 7 series.
