Predictions of a 2023 launch for a smartphone called the Xiaomi 13T Pro have been all but vindicated with a new discovery. It consists of a certification by the Thai regulator NBTC for a device of that name. It also validates an additional detail featuring in previous leaks.

Xiaomi is projected to release a version of the 13 Pro with different specs - a new top-end processor from MediaTek rather than Qualcomm included - in the third quarter of 2023. However, it has been the stuff of leaks and rumors - up until now. 

The 12T Pro successor has turned up on the NBTC's website, typically a stepping stone to a debut in any market by a mobile device. The regulator acknowledges the upcoming device by name and also by a model number (hinting at global availability) identical to that from a previous leak linking the device to the Dimensity 9200+ processor. This new tip cannot corroborate that detail, although it confirms that the smartphone has 5G.

Accordingly, this may prove the best evidence yet that the 13T Pro does exist and will be released before the end of 2023. Then again, it has yet to be joined by a vanilla 13T on the NBTC database at the time of writing.
