brand new display technology and even thinner bezels?

The Xiaomi 13 would already have several improvements compared to its predecessor, and the latest to come out of the rumors concerns its screen. Of course, given that we are talking about one of the most important parts of the smartphone which governs the user experience, this is rather good news for Xiaomi fans.

Digital Chat Station, which is a popular and reputable source, revealed that Xiaomi plans to include a Quad-HD LTPO display with an AMOLED panel for the Xiaomi 13, as reported by AndroidHeadlines. Now, here is a quick explanation for the three terms:

  • Quad HD: 2560 x 1440 pixel resolution (more than traditional full HD)
  • LTPO: if you see this, it means the smartphone can change the screen refresh rate for specific scenarios (refresh rate mainly affects the smoothness of animations when navigating the UI and playing games)
  • AMOLED: Simply put, it’s an OLED display with a few extra features on top of it, including better flexibility

The AMOLED display allows Xiaomi to achieve this curved edge effect on the right and left edges of the screen. It is also necessary if you want thin edges, as the screen has to be bent for this purpose. A good example is the Nothing Phone (1), which features uniform thin edges all around, thanks to the same display technology.

Better components

Now, it’s not just a better screen and smaller bezels that the Xiaomi 13 is supposed to bring with its debut. After all, the Xiaomi 12 already had a great curved-edge display anyway.

Fortunately, previous rumors claim that we should also see Qualcomm’s best chipset yet — the upcoming Snapdragon 8 Gen 2. If confirmed, once December rolls around, which is when the Xiaomi 13 series is expected to be announced, it would be one of the first smartphones to feature this chip.
