A few weeks ago, Xiaomi officially released its second-generation foldable smartphone, Xiaomi MIX Fold 2. Less than a month after the launch, there are now reports regarding another flagship smartphone from the Chinese manufacturer. According to popular Weibo tech blogger, @DCS, the Xiaomi 13 iterative standard version will come with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chip.
