The Xiaomi 13 might come with brand new display tech and even thinner bezels
The Xiaomi 13 is already said to feature several upgrades compared to its predecessor, and the latest one to come out of the rumor mill is about its display. Of course, given that we are talking about one of the more significant phone parts that govern the user experience, this is quite the good news for Xiaomi fans.

Digital Chat Station, who is a popular and reputable leaker, has revealed that Xiaomi is planning to slap a Quad-HD LTPO display with an AMOLED panel (via AndroidHeadlines). Now, admittedly so many abbreviations are almost reminiscent of the language those virtual avatars speak in Sims, so here’s a quick explanation for all three:

  • Quad-HD — 2560 x 1440p resolution (more than Full-HD)
  • LTPO — if you see this it basically means that the phone can change the refresh rate of the display for specific scenarios (refresh rate affects mainly how smooth animations look while navigating the UI and playing games)
  • AMOLED — simply put, this is an OLED display with some extra features sprinkled on top, one of which is better flexibility

Having an AMOLED display is what allows Xiaomi to achieve that curved-edge effect at the right and left edges of the screen. It is also required if you want to achieve thin bezels, as the screen needs to be bent for that purpose. One good example is the Nothing Phone (1), which has uniform thin bezels all around, thanks to the same display tech.

Now, it is not just the better display 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.

Thankfully, previous rumors claim that we should also see Qualcomm’s best chipset yet — the upcoming Snapdragon 8 Gen 2. If that stands true, once December arrives, which is when the Xiaomi 13 series is expected to be announced, it would be one of the first phones featuring this chip.
