Xiaomi 13T Pro: Leaker details camera improvements from new Redmi K60 Ultra
Kacper Skrzypek and GSMChina have shed some light on the cameras that Xiaomi plans to include in the global version of the Redmi K60 Ultra. To recap, the company introduced the Redmi K60 Ultra earlier this week in China with a Dimensity 9200 Plus chipset, a 144 Hz AMOLED display and a 5,000 mAh battery that supports 120 W wired charging. While the Xiaomi 13T Pro is likely to retain these specifications, Skrzypek alleges that the handset will rely upon different rear-facing cameras.
For context, Xiaomi equips the Redmi K60 Ultra with a Sony IMX800 sensor as its primary camera, which outputs at 50 MP with a 1/1.49-inch optical format. Additionally, the handset has 8 MP ultra-wide-angle and 2 MP macro cameras. In comparison, the Xiaomi 13T Pro is said to utilise the Sony IMX707 as its primary camera, another 50 MP sensor that Xiaomi already offers in the likes of the Xiaomi 12S, Xiaomi 12 Pro and Xiaomi 12S Pro. Although the IMX707 sounds as if it would be a weaker part than the IMX707 on account of its lower model number, it has larger pixels and optical format at 1.22 µm and 1/1.28-inches, respectively.
Moreover, Xiaomi will swap the 8 MP ultra-wide-angle camera for a 13 MP equivalent (Omnivision OV13B), another improvement for the Xiaomi 13T Pro compared to the Redmi K60 Ultra. Similarly, the 2 MP macro camera makes way for a 50 MP telephoto camera powered by an Omnivision OV50D sensor. By contrast, Xiaomi will bring across the Redmi K60 Ultra's front-facing camera, a 20 MP Sony IMX596 sensor. Overall, it would appear that the Xiaomi 13T Pro will contain a more well-rounded and superior camera setup than the Redmi K60 Ultra. Based on an Amazon leak, Xiaomi will start selling the Xiaomi 13T Pro on September 1 alongside the Xiaomi 13T.
