Xiaomi 13 Ultra design
The Xiaomi 13 Ultra case images show that it will have a raised camera island with a round-shaped camera module like the 12S Ultra. However, instead of a triple camera unit, it will have a quad-camera system. The camera module has some other cutouts, which could be for some sensors, a microphone, and an LED flash.
The top edge of the Xiaomi 13 Ultra’s case seems to have cutouts for a speaker grille, an IR blaster, and a microphone. Its opposite side has cutouts for a speaker grille, a USB Type-C port, and another microphone. The left side of the case seems to be barren, whereas its right edge seems to have cutouts for volume buttons and a power key.
