Xiaomi 13 Ultra camera preview confirms IMX989 in new quad 50MP set-up
Xiaomi CEO Lei Jun has just dropped the strongest hint yet that the 13 Ultra will indeed debut with the same kind of camera hump as its 12S Ultra predecessor. However, the next-gen massive round module will do one better in that it is now officially backed to launch with quad Leica-branded cameras, all of which will be large-aperture, and all of which will be 50MP.
Then again, only 1 of those will be an IMX989, as before. However, even that advanced sensor might not shine so bright against the arrival of the IMX858 alongside it. This Sony sensor will be introduced in the 13 Ultra not once, but 3 times over, as the 1-inch main camera's back-up.
The new CMOS is currently believed to show what it can do as an ultrawide-angle, 3x and 10x lens simultaneously on its debut. In any case, Xiaomi has revealed that all 4 will "support capture, night scene shooting and 8K video". Lei Jun, weighing in on Weibo from a 13 Ultra, also asserts that they will deliver a "professional" experience with a "full focal length" per camera.
