Mi 13 series: the most suitable “camera” for playing games

Although at the “Weibo Press Conference” led by Mr. Lei, we already knew about the various configurations of Mi 13, but listening to Mr. Lei talk again, it is not boring at all. A brief summary: Mi 13 The configuration of the series basically holds the door to a new round of flagship duels:

  • The second generation Snapdragon 8 chip
  • 6.36-inch ultra-narrow vision quadrilateral
  • Ultra identical Leica optics
  • New 75mm Leica Humanistic Telephoto Lens
  • A new generation of negative silicon battery
  • IP68 waterproof

The Mi 13 series still continues the dual flagship configuration of one large and one small, but this time it is not simply a different size, and the design is completely two styles.

The Xiaomi Mi 13 series adopts a right-angle frame design. The 1.61mm screen frame makes the screen ratio reach 93.3%. The high-gloss aluminum alloy frame is shiny, and the weight of 189 grams is not heavy. 12 The Shadow of Inheritance.

Xiaomi said that with a weight of 189 grams, the Mi 13 has an excellent grip. Well… the right-angle frame may not be as good as the Mi 12.

In addition to the three colors of black, white, and green, Xiaomi also brought a distant mountain blue color wrapped in “technical nano-skin”, which has a soft touch and fine texture. It can be your creative drawing board, you can write and draw on it with markers and ballpoint pens, and it can be wiped clean with paper towels or erasers.

In 1997, Messi started his career on a napkin. I wonder if someone will write some legend on the back of Mi 13 someday in the future.

By the way, this time Mi 13 is also equipped with IP68 as standard, which is waterproof, dustproof and dirt-proof, and the protection is indeed in place.

In terms of the screen, Mi 13 uses a brand new E6 material, the full screen brightness can reach 1200nit, the peak brightness can reach 1900nit, and the content on the screen can be seen clearly even in sunlight.

Support four Hollywood HDR standards: HDR 10, HDR10+, Dolby World, and HLG. It also supports “super dynamic display” to more accurately display the relationship between light and shade.

In terms of performance, the second-generation Snapdragon 8 adopts a 4nm process technology, the comprehensive performance of the CPU is increased by 37%, and the GPU is increased by 50%, which can realize game console features such as VRS variable coloring rate and hardware-level ray tracing.

In terms of energy consumption, it is nearly 50% lower than the first-generation Snapdragon 8.

Stable frame rate + no brightness reduction, “the phone with the best experience in “Yuan Shen”” and “performance comparable to e-sports phones” are Xiaomi’s evaluation of the performance experience of Mi 13.

In addition to the second-generation Snapdragon 8, LPDDR 5X memory, UFS 4.0 flash memory, 4642mm² cooling VC, 4500mAh high-energy-density battery, the peripheral performance of Mi 13 is also excellent enough.

Of course, we will share the experience of the Mi 13 series as soon as possible, so stay tuned.

Since the cooperation between Xiaomi and Leica, Xiaomi’s images have been praised by many people. Mi 13 is naturally equipped with all native Leica imaging capabilities: 50 million pixels, IMX 800 Leica main camera (23mm); 12 million pixels ultra-wide-angle (15mm) and 10 million pixels telephoto (75mm). Professional Leica professional optical lens, covering 15mm, 23mm, 46mm and 75mm focal lengths, supports HyperOIS super optical image stabilization.

The Leica dual image quality on Mi 13 has been upgraded to the P3 wide color gamut, which can capture 25% more colors than the previous generation, greatly improving the color expressiveness. Leica super-color images can bring us more realistic colors.

The new Leica telephoto lens is suitable for shooting headshots, busts, busts and other scenes. The composition is more compact and the subject is more prominent.

The functions of Leica’s native dual image quality, master lens package, Xiaomi imaging brain, lightning continuous shooting, and all-things tracking on Mi 12S Ultra can also be seen on Mi 13.

In terms of video shooting, it supports up to 4K 60 frames/8K 24 frames video shooting, and also supports 4K 10bit Dolby World HDR format video shooting.

At a surprising moment, Xiaomi also brought a variety of “racing limited colors” Mi 13, red, yellow, blue, green and gray each with its own characteristics, 12+512GB capacity configuration, priced at 4999 yuan, I don’t know how you feel about this highly saturated color How acceptable is the color, anyway I want the whole red.

If Mi 13 is a brand new attempt by Xiaomi in design, then Mi 13 Pro is the continuation of the family design. Mi 13 Pro has a more coherent and smooth design, four curved surfaces + ceramic backplane, and the grip should feel good.

In addition to the configurations of Mi 13, the upgrade points of Mi 13 Pro are as follows:

  • 2K resolution, 120Hz VRR stepless variable refresh rate screen;
  • One-inch Sony IMX 989 sensor main camera;
  • Floating focusing lens group, super close-up;
  • Professional 8K video capture;
  • 4K 10bit Dolby World HDR shooting;
  • 120W wired, 50W wireless fast charging;
  • Ultra wide frequency linear motor.

In Mr. Lei’s words, the Mi 14 Pro has “extremely strong stacking, extremely strong performance, and exceptionally good experience.”

Mi 13 Pro uses a customized 2K flexible screen, the same E6 material, supports an inorganic variable refresh rate of 1-120Hz, smooth display and power-saving, Mr. Lei demonstrated the second-level switching of the stopwatch 1-120Hz at the press conference, It seems that he is very confident in this function and expects more third-party app adaptations.

Mi 13 Pro can use ultra-dynamic display technology to display a more realistic light-dark relationship. Simply put, the highlights are brighter and the details of the dark parts are better.

In terms of performance, Mi 13 Pro has the same second-generation Snapdragon 8 and peripheral configurations as Mi 13. Mr. Lei specially showed the performance of the “Original God” boss battle + 5G + charging scene, which can almost maintain full frame, which looks really good .

The 4820mAh cell battery is equipped with 120W fast charging and 50W wireless charging, which can be fully charged in 19 minutes, and the battery life can reach 1.29 days. Xiaomi has also optimized the smart battery for various complex scenarios, which is safe, durable and fast.

The IMX989 sensor of the Mi 12S Ultra has been polished for half a year, and its performance on the Mi 13 Pro has been further improved.

One-inch outsole + Leica optical lens, Pro also has Ultra experience.

Referring to the SLR lens design, Mi 13 Pro is equipped with a 75mm, f/2.0 Leica floating telephoto, which can achieve a super large focus range from 10cm to infinity, and has a good performance in portraits and macro shots.

Of course, the Mi 13 Pro has not lost any of Mi 13 Pro’s imaging features such as Leica’s native dual image quality and the master lens package.

Mr. Lei showed the fleeting sunset color of the “golden hour” at the press conference to demonstrate the ability of Mi 13 Pro to restore rich colors. “After you have Mi 13 Pro, you must go to Record the sunset.”

In the imaging system of Xiaomi Mi 13 Pro, the super close-up video function makes me very interested. Using it to shoot video can record very beautiful macro effects, which makes me, who doesn’t like shooting, also excited.

In addition, Xiaomi also brought two new colors of Xiaomi MIX Fold 2 Moonlight Silver and Moon Shadow Black at this press conference, using leather grain glass and mirror ceramic technology respectively. Mi fans who like folding screens also have new choices.

Mijia grocery store, there are 5 new products

  • millet mini console

“If you’re a geek, he’s the one for you.”

Mi mini host, only 38mm thick, one-piece CNC aluminum alloy body. Although it is only 1/30 the size of a desktop host, it has performance comparable to that of a desktop of the same class.

It is equipped with 12th-generation Intel P-series processors and Intel Iris Core Graphics, 40W stable performance output and 16GB+512GB storage configuration. It can support up to four 4K monitors to be connected at the same time, making multi-screen office more efficient, and is also compatible with Ubuntu systems , providing a flexible development environment for programmers.

In terms of interfaces, the Mi Mini Host supports Thunderbolt 4, HDMI 2.1 and USB 3.2. It can meet the needs of daily office work, video editing and light games.

  • Mi Sound Pro

The brand new Xiaomi speaker embodies a “Pro”. 7-unit high-fidelity learning configuration, with a 40W large-size woofer, the perceived lighting effect can follow the rhythm of the music. If you have strong financial resources, you can also buy two to form a stereo, and buy 8 to form a whole-house audio system.

Xiaomi also considerately launched a two-piece set as an option. If you buy two pieces together, you can get a 200 yuan discount.

  • millet 10 gigabit router

This time, Xiaomi also brought a “ceiling” level router. The 10G network not only supports more devices to access and use, but also wider transmission bandwidth can bring lower delay and faster speed, which greatly improves Network experience.

For example, streaming VR games over the Internet, you can enjoy smooth entertainment without being bound by wires; multi-person co-working, even editing videos can be produced at the same time; 8K streaming videos can also be played smoothly. Compared with Xiaomi’s previous generation flagship router, the wireless speed has increased by 20%.

At the same time, Xiaomi 10 Gigabit router also supports three-band separation, which can classify and use devices in different frequency bands without interfering with each other, and achieve a more efficient multi-device connection experience.

MIUI 14: only for brisk operation

After 12 years of MIUI, I don’t know when, the discussion on turning it off on the Internet has changed from “add XX function” to “can’t it be so bloated”. The focus of MIUI 14 is lightness and smoothness.

  • A Knife: Project Razor, Reduce System Memory

The first task of MIUI 14 is to reduce the system occupation. Compared with the flagship models of competitors, the storage space occupied by the system of Mi 13 Pro and the memory occupation after booting are both the smallest.

After reducing the system occupation, MIUI 14 maximizes the choice of system apps. Only the 8 apps that provide basic functions of the mobile phone, such as phone calls, text messages, contacts, file management, system settings, app stores, browsers, and cameras, cannot be uninstalled. Even the desktop icons of contacts and file management can be hidden.

In Jin Fan’s words: “This is a light experience that only MIUI 14 can bring you.”

In addition, MIUI has also added a duplicate file cleaning function to solve the problem of storing multiple copies of a file in third-party apps such as WeChat. Through the new file system capability, duplicate files can be merged to free up storage space.

MIUI 14 will also compress apps that are used infrequently, such as individual taxes, 12306, etc., and return the excess space. It is said that 5GB of space can be saved in 3 months.

Finally, some apps have a permanent notification function. Even if it is not closed in the app, MIUI 14 also supports closing it directly in the notification center, which lowers our operating threshold at the bottom of the system.

MIUI 14 saves space for us in this way, then… Mi 13 I will support the minimum capacity.

  • A beam of light: photon engine, flagship fluency

MIUI 14 has greatly optimized the architecture and scheduling mechanism, operating on the underlying Android kernel to make the system perform more smoothly. To put it simply, from unlocking notifications to long-term use of major apps, MIUI 14 has a faster response speed than competitors and fewer frame drops.

The photon engine is also open to third-party apps. MIUI and developers jointly debug, and in daily high-frequency scenarios such as Moments, Weibo, and Douyin, the fluency of MIUI 14 is Android’s first. Compared with MIUI 13, the fluency of Weibo is increased by 88%, and the power consumption is reduced by 16%.

It is always good to have an improvement, but the 88% increase in Weibo is so big that I want to ask my friends who are using MIUI 13: When you swipe Weibo, do you get stuck?

  • A new face: the new desktop is here

How to prove yourself updated to MIUI 14? Try the new desktop icons and capsule widgets. In addition to the standard app icon size, MIUI 14 also provides 3 different sizes, which can make the desktop “patchwork”.

Widgets also provide the same size options, and when used together, the desktop can also be varied.

In addition, MIUI 14 has also added flower pet decoration widgets. These interactive 3D cute pets always make me dream back to the days of teasing QQ pets ten years ago.

By the way, in the folder of the first screenshot, there is an app called “Ai Faner”, which is said to be very useful.

  • Enhanced privacy, protecting privacy even when not connected to the Internet

Flares, interception nets, hidden masks, MIUI has done a lot of impressive functions in terms of privacy. In MIUI 14, Xiaomi has strengthened local privacy – powerful functions can be realized without networking.

For example, Xiaomi Album can directly extract text in pictures, and supports local extraction in 8 languages. Xiaomi said that the image recognition accuracy of MIUI 14 is better than that of iOS.

When conducting online conferences, MIUI supports local recognition of Chinese subtitles, which is more accurate and faster than common online solutions.

Starting from MIUI 13, the Internet of Everything has become the business card of MIUI. In MIUI 14, Xiaomi has optimized the whole link: the earphones can be paired with the mobile phone when the cover is opened; there is almost no need to wait for the TV screen; 1GB video transmission takes less than 12 seconds.

After the laptop is connected to the tablet, the keyboard and mouse can be shared between the computer and the tablet. One set of keyboard and mouse can control the two devices, and pictures and documents can be freely transferred between the two devices. Xiaomi TV users can also use their mobile phone to assist TV input – just click the search box without any operation.

Apps, operations, and notifications related to smart home have also been fully optimized.

Cloud space and smart scene sharing between families; time management and vision protection for children; health data sharing for the elderly… MIUI 14 not only greatly simplifies the system, improves the running speed, but also makes many operations easier. Intuitive, more concerned with human usage scenarios.

The first batch of MIUI 14 will be released in January 2023. If you are a developer version user, you can update it now, and 2023 is less than 20 days away.

According to Canalys data, global smartphone shipments in the third quarter of 2022 will drop by 9% year-on-year, which is the lowest quarter for global smartphone shipments. Despite this, Xiaomi’s shipments remain the third in the world, with a market share of 13.6%, the same period last year, is also the third in the world. Xiaomi, which has been targeting the iPhone for a year, has at least stabilized its position.

Before the launch of the Xiaomi press conference, I established an internal communication group and named it “Xiaomi 13, go high-end again”. On the one hand, I feel that it rhymes. . In the press conference, Mr. Lei also said that the three years of high-end exploration have gained a lot. From MIUI 14 to Mi 13 series to 5 new Mijia products, we can see that Xiaomi is exploring a new high-end route: experience priority, deep collaboration between software and hardware.

In the release of MIUI 14, Jin Fan, the person in charge of MIUI, said that he wanted to “cut the blade inward and cut himself three times”, and Xiaomi who dared to cut himself is a brand new Xiaomi with a connected experience.
