The Xiaomi 13 Pro, the company’s flagship smartphone which launched in February, had a surprisingly great camera. Now, Xiaomi is trying to improve on that with the Xiaomi 13 Ultra, a smartphone tailor-made for mobile photography enthusiasts.More portable camera than phone, the Xiaomi 13 Ultra has four Leica-branded, 50-megapixel cameras on the rear, all squeezed into a massive circular bump, which gives the Ultra a design distinct from the Xiaomi 13 Pro, which has a square camera bump on the back. There, you’ll find a wide angle, ultra-wide angle, telephoto, and a super-telephoto camera. The main, wide angle camera offers variable aperture, letting you 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 lets you take photos at a 5x optical zoom, which can be further enhanced digitally if needed. images-2.fill_.size_2000x1249.v1681903381 The list of perks 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.
