Xiaomi 13 Ultra: European retailers reveal lower than rumoured pricing
Last week, leaker @billbil_kun revealed European pricing for the Xiaomi 13 Ultra, the only member of the Xiaomi 13 series that the company has not released outside China. As we discussed at the time, @billbil_kun declared that the Xiaomi 13 Ultra would carry a €1,499 MSRP, making it one of the most expensive Android smartphones around. Xiaomi's alleged decision to only offer the device with 12 GB of RAM and 512 GB of storage would see the Xiaomi 13 Ultra undercut comparable Galaxy S23 Ultra and iPhone 14 Pro Max configurations.
However, Dutch retailer Belsimpel suggests that the Xiaomi 13 Ultra will arrive in Europe for less than expected. While other retailers offer imported Chinese models, Belsimpel and Gomibo only sell European variants. Hence, it would appear that this is at least a European version of the Xiaomi 13 Ultra, although neither retailer has confirmed this is the case.
Regardless, as the screenshot below shows, Belsimpel is selling Xiaomi's premier smartphone for €1,299, price-matching the Xiaomi 13 Pro. As far as we can tell, the retailer has been offering the device for a few days, seemingly ruling out a pricing error. Likewise, Gomibo, its German counterpart, has priced the same 512 GB of storage and 12 GB of RAM variant at €1,277. Allegedly, both will have availability within the next 5-7 days; Xiaomi has not commented on a global release date yet, though.
