Xiaomi 13T series has finally been introduced in the global market. Xiaomi 13T and Xiaomi 13T Pro come with a solid camera setup and very good performance. This year’s “Xiaomi T series” comes with a telephoto camera, available in both the vanilla and pro models. Xiaomi claims that the new 13T series cameras are powered by Leica, but please note that Xiaomi 13T will come with Leica cameras in only some regions. Now, let’s take a closer look at Xiaomi 13T series.
Xiaomi 13T comes in three different color options, Meadow Green, Alpine Blue and Black and both the 13T and 13T Pro IP68 certification. This year’s Xiaomi 13T series features a flat display. Xiaomi 13T comes with a 6.67-inch 1.5K 144 Hz OLED display. Additionally, Xiaomi 13T boasts a display with a brightness of 2600 nits, which means it is brighter than the displays found on most of the flagship devices in 2023.
Xiaomi 13T is powered by MediaTek Dimensity 8200-Ultra chipset. While it may not be MediaTek’s most powerful chipset, it still promises to deliver excellent performance. The phone opts for UFS 3.1 as its storage unit.
Both Xiaomi 13T and Xiaomi 13T Pro feature the same camera setup. Xiaomi 13T comes with a 50 MP Sony IMX 707 sensor for its main camera (1/1.28″ in size), an 8 MP ultrawide angle camera, and a 2x 50 MP telephoto camera. Despite having the Sony IMX 707 sensor, Xiaomi 13T, does not support 4K60 video recording unfortunately. It does offer 4K30 video recording, but you’ll need to switch to FHD resolution to record at 60 FPS. Note that the main camera has OIS.
This years Xiaomi T series brings the ability to set your own “photographic style”. This is pretty much like a preset that has been built into the stock camera app. You can take multiple shots with the same color tuning as you determined.
Xiaomi 13T packs a 5000 mAh battery with 67W fast charging, it’s not fast as the 13T Pro but it’s quite good for most of the people.
Compared to the previous model, Xiaomi 13T offers significant improvements. Last year’s 12T series did not come with a telephoto camera, and the 13T’s display boasts 2600 nits of brightness, which is on par with the maximum screen brightness of the 13 Ultra. With its flagship-level display and a decent camera setup, Xiaomi 13T looks to be a competitive phone this year.
Xiaomi 13T Pro
There isn’t much of a difference between Xiaomi 13T Pro and Xiaomi 13T, except for the chipset and battery. We say there is not too much difference between the devices but it’s worth considering to buy the 13T Pro if you need better performance.
Xiaomi 13T Pro is available in Meadow Green, Alpine Blue and Black colors. Both the 13T and 13T Pro have leather back and same color options. Xiaomi 13T Pro features the same display as the 13T, a 6.67-inch 144 Hz OLED display with 1.5K resolution, and a maximum brightness of 2600 nits.
Xiaomi 13T Pro is equipped with MediaTek Dimensity 9200+ chipset, paired with LPDDR5X RAM. It also uses UFS 4.0 as the storage unit. You can be sure that the Pro model is significantly faster than the vanilla 13T.
Last year, Xiaomi 12T series featured both Snapdragon and MediaTek chipset. Xiaomi 12T Pro came with Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1. However, this year, both the 13T and 13T Pro come with MediaTek chipsets. We’re not claiming that the Dimensity 9200+ is a bad processor, but this may disappoint some Snapdragon lovers.
Just like the vanilla Xiaomi 13T, the 13T Pro also comes with a 50 MP Sony IMX 707 sensor for the main camera, an 8 MP ultra-wide-angle camera, and a 2x 50 MP Omnivision OV50D telephoto camera. What 13T Pro can do but the vanilla model can’t is the 10-bit LOG video recording.
On the battery side, Xiaomi 13T Pro offers slightly better capabilities compared to the vanilla 13T, featuring a 5000 mAh battery and 120W fast charging. Xiaomi promises a full charge within 19 minutes.
Xiaomi also offers 4 years of Android updates and 5 years of security updates for each phones.
