Four 50-megapixel cameras… on a phone? Yes, Xiaomi has done it and has caught the tech world’s attention with its latest Xiaomi 13 Ultra. And if you’re keen on getting one, here’s some good news: you can choose from three vibrant new colours.
Xiaomi 13 Ultra: specs and colours
Xiaomi once again joined forces with German camera brand Leica to launch the latest addition to the Xiaomi 13 series. One of Xiaomi 13 Ultra’s attractive features is an aperture that’s variable (you can choose between f/1.9 or f/4.0) so that you can have more control when it comes to the depth of field. It’s perfect for street photography on your next travel getaway, for example. And if you’re a fan of the traditional feel of a standalone camera, Xiaomi will also be releasing a grip accessory with a traditional shutter release button and zoom lever to the phone.
Its other cool features include a 6.73-inch OLED display with a 1440p resolution (to help you get those cinematic vibes), a dynamic 120Hz refresh rate, and 2,600 nits of peak brightness. It’s also powered by the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 (same as the Xiaomi 13 and 13 Pro).
You can choose between 12 and 16GB of RAM and between 256GB and a whopping 1TB of onboard storage so that you wouldn’t have to worry about running out of space for all your snapshots.

It’s also dust- and water-resistant and will be available with a vegan leather coating. It was first revealed that the phone will come in these three colours — olive green, black, and white. But the brand has recently announced that it has added three more colour options on Xiaomi China’s online store — Starry Sky Blue, Cabernet Orange and Ginkgo Yellow.
