The Xiaomi 13 Pro, the company’s flagship smartphone that launched in February, came with a surprisingly good camera. Now, the Chinese company is trying to further improve that section with the xiaomi 13 Ultraa smartphone tailor-made for mobile photography enthusiasts.
According to a report from mashable, the Xiaomi 13 Ultra has four 50-megapixel cameras from the Leica brand on the backall compressed into a huge circular bulge, giving the Ultra a distinct design from the Xiaomi 13 Pro, which has a square camera.
The smartphone presents a wide-angle, ultra-wide, telephoto and super-telephoto camera. The wide-angle main camera offers a variable aperture, allowing you to choose between f/1.9 and f/4.0 aperture, and is paired with Sony’s 1-inch IMX989 sensor. The new super-telephoto camera, meanwhile, lets you take photos with 5x optical zoom, which can be further digitally enhanced if required.
The list of advantages that this camera system gives you is quite long and includes 14-bit Ultra Raw support and 8K video recording at 24 fps. On the front, there’s a 32-megapixel selfie camera with night mode and portrait mode options.
