Xiaomi is set to release its new premium T-series smartphones in the third quarter of 2023. While there is no official confirmation from the company about the launch of the Xiaomi 13T series, rumors suggest that the Xiaomi 13T Pro has been spotted on the IMEI database alongside the Redmi K60 Ultra.
What is the IMEI database?
The International Mobile Equipment Identity (IMEI) number is a unique identifier for mobile phones, similar to a serial number. The IMEI database is a global database that contains information about mobile phones that are being manufactured, sold, or used all over the world. It is used by network operators, law enforcement agencies, and manufacturers to track stolen or lost phones, as well as to prevent counterfeit phones from entering the market.
Xiaomi 13T Pro spotted on IMEI database
Xiaomi UI, a Chinese tech blog, has reportedly spotted the Xiaomi 13T Pro on the IMEI database along with the Redmi K60 Ultra. The Xiaomi 13T Pro has the model number 23078PND5G, which indicates that it is the global variant of the smartphone. On the other hand, the Redmi K60 Ultra carries the model number 23078RKD5C, which suggests that it is a China-exclusive smartphone.
Will the Xiaomi 13T Pro launch globally?
While the listing on the IMEI database hints that the Xiaomi 13T Pro might launch globally, the Xiaomi UI report suggests that the phone might not debut in India. Xiaomi skipped launching the 12T series, which debuted last year in Europe. It is unclear whether the company will launch the Xiaomi 13T series in India or other markets apart from China.
What are the expected specifications of Xiaomi 13T Pro?
According to rumors, the Xiaomi 13T Pro and the Redmi K60 Ultra are likely to feature a MediaTek processor. The handsets will reportedly feature the flagship MediaTek Dimensity 9200 SoC. Xiaomi UI also spotted the smartphones in the MIUI code with the codename corot.
If the rumors are to be believed, the Xiaomi 13T Pro might come with a 120Hz AMOLED display, support at least 120W fast charging, and carry a 200-megapixel triple-camera setup on the back. These specifications are similar to the Xiaomi 12T Pro, which was launched last year. However, it is unclear whether the Xiaomi 13T Pro will have any other significant upgrades over the outgoing model.
The Xiaomi 13T Pro and the Redmi K60 Ultra are expected to debut in July 2023. While the listing on the IMEI database hints at the global launch of the Xiaomi 13T Pro, it is still unclear whether the smartphone will launch in India or other markets apart from China. Xiaomi skipped launching the 12T series in India, which adds to the confusion about the launch of the 13T series in the country. As of now, we can only wait for an official announcement from Xiaomi to confirm the details about the launch of the Xiaomi 13T series.
