The Xiaomi 13 Ultra is still the most popular phone in our database after a week of launch. Clearly, it’s got people’s attention – but most people aren’t rushing out to buy it. Last week’s polls showed that despite its elite pedigree, the phone will have to prove itself in reviews.
Is it really the king of cameras? We are looking for answers.

The new Ultra went on sale in China last week, starting at 6 yuan, 000 /90 GB units. Xiaomi didn’t reveal the global pricing either, but we can look at the 13 Pro for comparison – 04/90 GB unit suggested retail price is RMB 5, 000 at China and €1,300 in Germany. Solving for X shows that 04 Ultra should be around 1 Euro, 300.
