Xiaomi has finally unveiled its highly anticipated 13T series, which is co-engineered with renowned camera manufacturer, Leica

Boasting a string of remarkable features, the all-new Xiaomi 13T series features two variants — the Xiaomi 13T and Xiaomi 13T Pro.

First, here's a closer look at the Xiaomi 13T series' features:

1. Capture professional-grade photos anytime, anywhere

Co-engineered with Leica, you can expect the Xiaomi 13T series to capture crystal-clear photos with just the touch of a button.

The Xiaomi 13T series brings two original Leica photographic styles, the Leica Authentic Look and Leica Vibrant Look, both of which are capable of automatically tuning an image according to lighting conditions and the shooting environment to the remarkable Leica quality and character.

The camera also covers 100% Digital Cinema Initiatives – Protocol 3 (DCI-P3), achieving a wide colour range that complements the unique Leica photographic styles.

Pre-setting your camera before shooting is important for many photographers. That's why the Xiaomi 13T series comes with the custom photographic styles function, first seen in the Xiaomi 13 Ultra, which allows you to adjust the camera's tone, tonality, and texture at the pre-set stage. This helps you retain more details and colours for post-processing. You can also save your preferred pre-sets, so you can create distinctive photographic styles for different photography projects.

Adding to the creative potential, the Xiaomi 13T series comes with six Leica filters, including the newly-added Leica Sepia and Leica Blue, which originated from the LeicaM-Typ240 Film Mode that captures the legendary and classic essence of Leica aesthetics.

From stunning close-up photographs of subjects such as birds and dogs to detailed images of people and places, you can now achieve so much more with the latest series.

2. Shoot stunning, crisp videos from 4K video format onwards

The Xiaomi 13T's rear cameras support 4K video recording in all focal lengths, while the Xiaomi 13T Pro supports 8K video shooting for crisper, more legible, ultra-high resolution, and cinema-like videos.

Previously only available on professional video cameras, the Xiaomi 13T Pro supports 10-bit LOG 4:2:0 H.265 video recording with the pre-installed Rec.709 LUT. This feature lets you preview the adjusted colour before and during shooting, so you can obtain a satisfying lighting setup for the desired visual design. Plus, the 50MP wide-angle camera supports optical image stabilisation (OIS) and electronic image stabilisation (EIS) to help you shoot steady videos while walking, perfect for those who enjoy vlogging. 

Need to edit your videos real quick? The Xiaomi 13T series lets you enter the Pro mode of the video editor feature in the Xiaomi Gallery application, allowing you to efficiently and easily add captions, soundtracks, and more.
