Leica cameras are typically expensive, making them an investment that not everyone is willing to make. However, thanks to Xiaomi, Leica imaging has been democratized, even more so than in the Huawei and Leica partnership. If you’re seeking the Leica experience at an affordable price, along with the added benefits of making calls, browsing the internet, and more, the new Xiaomi 13T Series is the perfect choice.

Xiaomi 13T Series Smartphones

The Xiaomi 13T and 13T Pro offer Leica co-engineered triple camera setups, with a 50MP Leica main, 50MP Leica telephoto, and Leica ultra-wide lenses. These cameras capture authentic Leica imagery and offer a wide color range with DCI-P3 support. They also feature Pro mode with customizable photographic styles, allowing users to adjust tone, tonality, and texture for unique photo styles. Xiaomi 13T Series employs ProFocus technology for capturing detailed action shots, making it versatile for various photography needs.

Both devices offer the same Leica. Differentiating them are the processor, the type of memories, storage, battery capacities, and max. charging – all of which result in the final pricing of each phone.

The new Xiaomi 13T and Xiaomi 13T Pro will have a starting price of US$499 and US$645, respectively, when they become available. Meanwhile, keep going for the rundown of the specifications of the two devices.
