Xiaomi 13 Ultra is set to launch globally on April 18. As a highly-anticipated smartphone, there have been numerous leaks and reports about it, suggesting several key specifications and features. Officially, the company has confirmed a few details. The upcoming Xiaomi 13 series handset, expected to succeed the Xiaomi 12S Ultra, is also confirmed to feature Leica-branded cameras. Now the Beijing-based phone manufacturing company has confirmed the types of sensors that will be featured in the quad rear camera system of the Xiaomi 13 Ultra device.
In an official Weibo post, Xiaomi confirmed that the Xiaomi 13 Ultra will feature one 50-megapixel Sony IMX989 sensor and three 50-megapixel Sony IMX858 sensors in its quad rear camera setup.
