It appears that Xiaomi will turbocharge its pre-order bonus for the forthcoming Xiaomi 13 and Xiaomi 13 Pro. While the company has previously offered complimentary wearables and even tablets to entice people to pre-order its new flagships, a leaker has discovered references to a Xiaomi TV P1E Smart TV being thrown in with Xiaomi 13 and Xiaomi 13 Pro pre-orders in France.

Leaker @billbil_kun appears to have obtained details about a pre-order deal for the forthcoming Xiaomi 13 series. Perhaps unsurprisingly, the deal will apply when ordering the Xiaomi 13 or Xiaomi 13 Pro and not the cheaper Xiaomi 13 Lite. For reference, the Xiaomi 13 Lite is expected to starts at €499, with the Xiaomi 13 and Xiaomi 13 Pro priced at €999.90 and €1,299.90, respectively.

Potentially, this pre-order deal could be a French exclusive; so far, @billbil_kun has only provided evidence of the screenshot embedded below. Regardless, the deal shown is not as good as the screenshot makes it out to be. While the 43-inch version of the TV P1 has a €449 list price in the Eurozone, it can be picked up for less than €400 from Amazon France. The value of the pre-order deal would still exceed the equivalent Xiaomi offered with the Xiaomi 12T Pro though, which received a complimentary Redmi Pad.

Additionally, the pre-order deal highlights Xiaomi's pre-order period, which the company has not confirmed yet. If correct, it would mean that Xiaomi will begin accepting pre-orders on the same day it presents the Xiaomi 13 series and before their presumed showcase at MWC 2023 in Barcelona. Moreover, dates imply that Xiaomi will not begin shipping pre-orders until after the first week of March, either. It remains to be seen whether a comparable pre-order period will apply to the Xiaomi 13 Lite, though.
