- Xiaomi 13 series is expected to launch by November end in China
- The lineup will consist of the Xiaomi 13 and the Xiaomi 13 Pro
- The CAD renders of the Xiaomi 13 Pro have surfaced to reveal its design
Xiaomi 13 Pro design has been revealed by popular tipster Steve Hemmerstoffer in collaboration with Zoutons. The CAD renders give a good look at the Xiaomi 13 Pro, which is expected to break cover as early as this month in China. The images show that the device’s front design will be almost identical to the Xiaomi 12 Pro, which went official in December 2021 in the home market. However, it will be sporting a refreshed rear design.
Qualcomm is expected to announce the next-generation Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 by mid-November. It is speculated that the Xiaomi 13 and Xiaomi 13 Pro could be the first SD8G2 phones to go official. Like the Xiaomi 12 series, the Xiaomi 13 will be a compact model, while the 13 Pro will be its bigger sibling.

The new leak reveals that the Xiaomi 13 Pro will arrive with a curved-edge AMOLED display that measures around 6.65 inches. It can be seen sporting a punch-hole in the top-centre position. The top edge has a couple of holes, which could be for a speaker, an IR blaster, and a microphone. The left edge of the device appears to be barren, while its right spine has a volume controller and a power button.
Moving to the bottom, the Xiaomi 13 Pro has a SIM slot, a microphone, a USB Type-C port, and a speaker grille. The rear panel of the phone features a triple camera unit and a pill-shaped LED flash housed inside a square-shaped module.
The report states that the Xiaomi 13 Pro measures 163 x 74.6 x 8.8mm. The overall design seen in the CAD renders matches the phone’s leaked photo that was spotted in October. Unfortunately, it does not say anything more about its specifications.
