Xiaomi 13 and Xiaomi 13 Pro launch event has been rescheduled. The company had originally planned to announce the Xiaomi 13 series on December 1st, 2022. However, the company had to cancel the event, reportedly due to the demise of a popular Chinese leader. The Xiaomi 13 duo is now set to launch at 7 pm (China time) on December 11th, 2022. The other devices expected to debut through the same event include MIUI 14, Xiaomi Watch S2, Xiaomi Buds 4, and a desktop PC.

The official images of the Xiaomi 13 and 13 Pro have been released to give a good look at their design. Compared to the Xiaomi 12 and 12 Pro, the 13 series has a similar front design and a camera module on the back that has been revamped.
