While the Xiaomi 13 and Xiaomi 13 Pro are set to launch globally at MWC next month, it appears Xiaomi may be taking its time with the more premium Xiaomi 13 Ultra. According to word on the grapevine, the line-leading model could debut as late as April instead.
According to typically reliable leaker Digital Chat Station, both the OPPO Find X6 and Honor Magic5 series will debut just after the Chinese New Year. China’s New Year falls on January 22. Considering how long the festivities last, both lineups can be expected to launch in mid to late February. The leaker is vehement, however, that the Xiaomi 13 Ultra will launch at a later date.
Seeing as MWC begins in late February, it’s unlikely that the Xiaomi 13 Ultra gets released at the conference. Confirmed, however, is the global debut of the Xiaomi 13 and Xiaomi 13 Pro flagships. Going by back-alley whispers on Chinese web pages, the Xiaomi 13 Ultra could be prepped for a late March or early April launch in Xiaomi’s home market. It’s unknown, though, if the flagship will debut globally simultaneously.

I like tech, simple as. Half the time, you can catch me writing snarky sales copy. The rest of the time, I’m either keeping readers abreast with the latest happenings in the mobile tech world or watching football. I worked as both a journo and freelance content writer for a couple of years before joining the Notebookcheck team in 2017. Feel free to shoot me some questions on Twitter or Reddit if it so tickles thine fancy.
