Following the global unveiling of the Xiaomi 13 series at the Mobile World Congress 2023 trade show in Barcelona, Spain, the company has announced pricing and availability details for both the standard Xiaomi 13 and Xiaomi 13 Pro in the Philippines, with preorders available beginning March 3.

The two smartphones with Leica-powered cameras will make their way to Xiaomi stores and partner retailers nationwide, as well as official Xiaomi shops on Lazada, Shopee, and TikTok Shop.

Arriving in Black, White, and Flora Green colors, the Xiaomi 13 is priced at P44,999 (around $818 converted) for the lone configuration with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage. The Xiaomi 13 Pro, on the other hand, will sell for P59,999 ($1,090) for the model with 12GB RAM and 256GB of storage. It comes in Ceramic Black and Ceramic White colors.

As a preorder offer, each purchase of a Xiaomi 13 or Xiaomi 13 Pro unit will be bundled with a free Xiaomi Watch S1 Active smartwatch worth P8,999 ($164). Customers who buy a Xiaomi 13 series phone from March 3 to 10, 2023, will also be entitled to 2TB of Google One cloud storage for six months. Additionally, Xiaomi will offer the flexibility to pay in interest-free installments for up to 18 months via Home Credit.

The brand is committing to three major Android updates and five years of security patches for both flagship handsets. Xiaomi 13 and Xiaomi 13 Pro users will likewise get a free out-of-warranty repair within the first year of purchase, in addition to international warranty service in more than 40 markets for a more convenient after-sales experience.

In our review of the Xiaomi 13, we noted the phone’s improved camera performance, multimedia features, and battery life, though Xiaomi should have retained the curved display of last year’s release. Still, we think it’s a noteworthy upgrade over its predecessor, which was priced at P39,999 ($727) at launch.

The more technically impressive — and expensive — Xiaomi 13 Pro is a beast as well, and its rear cameras deliver better pictures across all zoom ranges. Xiaomi also advertises a 19-minute charging time for the Pro variant, which supports 120-watt fast charging. That said, if you’re after a versatile camera phone with top-end specs and charging technology, the Xiaomi 13 Pro could be the right one for you.
