Xiaomi has returned to the charge in 2023 with its new series 13 of mobiles, among which the xiaomi 13 Proa high-end terminal that, from the outset, promises to be an all-rounder in the photographic section.
With this premium version of its series, the Chinese company seeks to conquer a segment that the crisis in the consumer products market has not significantly affected: middle and high incomes.
Thus, the new Xiaomi 13 Pro arrives in the middle of widespread falls of 12% in the global smartphone market during the whole of 2022, according to data from Canalys.
However, the Chinese company continues to be the first favorite manufacturer of the Spanish, with a 33% market share in the fourth quarter of 2022, above Samsung (30%) and Apple (12%).

In this sense, the Xiaomi 13 Pro offers the latest specifications on the market, to which it adds a photographic section dominated by Leica, a company specialized in cameras and which has already left its stamp on the Xiaomi 12S Ultra.
For a moment with the Xiaomi 13 Pro, you can already tell that it is a high-quality mobile. This is what stands out the most at first glance…
The Xiaomi 13 Pro has a very comfortable design with premium materials, despite being a relatively large mobile.
Xiaomi has thought a lot about the design of the Xiaomi 13 Pro, precisely in 3 ways: resistance, comfort and materials. In this sense, its measurements are comfortable –162.9 x 74.6 x 8.38 millimeters–, although it is far from being a small mobile.
To this is added a weight of 229 grams which, although it is not uncomfortable, is not one of the lowest on the market either. Now, it is justified by all its specifications and the bioceramics that make up the rear design.
In addition, Xiaomi has added resistance IP68 which, curiously, the previous models did not have. The only thing that I have missed has been the beautiful green color that the company does offer in the Xiaomi 13.
For the rest, it seems that it is a mobile with which you will not have any connection problems in your day to day, since it comes with 5G, NFC, bluetooth 5.3 and Wi-Fi 7.
The Xiaomi 13 Pro screen performs very well in bright environments, thanks to a unique value of 1,900 nits of brightness.
The Chinese company has also taken into account the day-to-day life of its users and, so that there is no problem of annoying reflections in bright conditions, Xiaomi has chosen to increase the value of the brightness up to 1,900 nits.
A figure that undoubtedly makes the Xiaomi 13 Pro one of the mobiles with the most solvent screen in this section. Besides, his 6.73-inch WQHD+ AMOLED panel shows considerable quality.
As if that were not enough, it also has specifications to reinforce the screen section, such as 120 Hz refresh rateDolby Vision or HDR10+.
On the other hand, although it is something that will have to be tested in depth, in the Xiaomi 13 you can find the latest: Snapdragon 8 Gen 2, MIUI 14 based on Android 13 and a promising 4,820 mAh battery with 120W fast charging.
The Xiaomi 13 Pro camera puts Leica in the center, with a photographic section that promises great results.
Although the camera is one of the sections that needs to be thoroughly tested, at first glance you can see how the Xiaomi 13 Pro places great importance on its cameras, starting with its predominant position in the design.
Now, his best balance is having incorporated Leica in mobile photography as a whole, with values that promise to make this section brutal:
- 50 megapixel Leica main camera with aperture value f/1.9
- 50 megapixel ultra wide angle with aperture value f/2.2.
- 50 megapixel telephoto with aperture value f/2.0.
- 32 megapixel front camerawith aperture value f/2.0.
To this it also adds the possibility of choosing between 2 different photography styles, Leica Authentic Look and Leica Vibrant Look, telephoto night portrait mode, optical stabilization in all modes and ultra-night video option.
- 12 GB RAM and 256 GB internal memory: 1,399 euros.
