We just told you about the Xiaomi 12T Pro Daniel Arsham Edition and here we are, writing about the new Xiaomi 13 Series. There are two models (so far), namely, Xiaomi 13 and Xiaomi 13 Pro. You can understand the former as the successor to the Xiaomi 12S and the latter, as a follow-up to the 12S Pro and 12S Ultra. Though I’m pretty sure there’s going to be an Ultra version soon enough.
