Xiaomi had announced the Xiaomi 13 Ultra will be made available globally. However, according to a reliable source, the smartphone will only be released in certain international markets and will not be available in regions where the company had previously sold Mi 11 Ultra.
MIUI tipster Kacper Skrzypek recently disclosed that the Xiaomi 13 Ultra will not be released in India, Indonesia, Turkey, and Japan, as there are no MIUI firmware builds for these regions. The device will only be available in China, Global, EEA, Russia, and Taiwan. This means that apart from its home market, the phone will be sold in a limited number of Western countries.
Potential customers in regions where the Xiaomi 13 Ultra will not be available will need to import the phone. However, it is important to note that, unlike Apple, Xiaomi does not offer international warranties and repairs for its products, making it less recommended for most people. According to leaks, the Xiaomi 13 Ultra will have the same Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset as the vanilla and Pro models but with an improved Leica-powered camera system.
It’s worth noting that the rumored Xiaomi 13 Ultra will come with an impressive camera setup, consisting of a 32 MP front-facing camera and four rear cameras with wide, ultra-wide, telephoto, and periscope lenses, all featuring 50 MP sensors from Sony, with the primary sensor being a 1-inch Sony IMX989. The phone is also expected to come with up to 16 GB LPDDR5x RAM, 1 TB UFS 4.0 storage, and run Android 13-based MIUI 14. It will also support fast charging, with 90W wired charging and 50W wireless charging.
