Xiaomi 13 Ultra was launched in the first quarter of the year in China and it is one of the best Android phones available in the market. Now, it has finally reached more markets and we already have a unit for testing.
It features a 6.73-inch AMOLED screen with 2K resolution and a rate of up to 120 Hz, punch-hole display and maximum brightness of 2,600 nits, Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 platform, up to 16 GB of RAM, up to 1 TB of internal storage, camera 32 MP front camera, four main cameras (50 MP / 50 MP / 50 MP/ 50 MP), 5G connection, NFC, Bluetooth 5.3, Wi-Fi 7 and IP68, 5,000 mAh battery with 90W wired and 50W wireless charging wire and Android 13 running underneath the MIUI 14 interface.
Our official battery test is run with many popular apps, games, and services in timed cycles until the battery drains completely, with standby time between cycles to track background consumption. Screen brightness and network settings are standardized so that we can draw a parallel between all the models that have passed through our benches.
The apps present in the cycles, and their specific execution times per cycle, are:
6 minutes of use (each) — WhatsApp, YouTube, MX Player (offline video), Spotify, PowerAmp (offline music) and Chrome; 1 minute (each) — Pokémon Go, Asphalt 8, Subway Surfers, Candy Crush, Modern Combat 5, and Injustice; 4 minutes of 3G/4G calls; 2 minutes of use (each) — Facebook, Gmail and GMaps
