And we already have some info about the company’s next flagship phones, the Xiaomi 13T series. According to a reliable tipster Mukul SharmaXiaomi could launch the 13T series later this year.
Xiaomi 13T Series Rumors:

It seems that Xiaomi has already started internally testing the upcoming 13T series. This lineup is expected to include two models: Xiaomi 13T and 13T Pro. Interestingly, Xiaomi could skip the “13S” lineup entirely this time as per another reliable leakster Digital Chat Station.
No Xiaomi 12S?
Moving on, all phones in the Xiaomi 13 series are powered by Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chip. Xiaomi’s “S” iteration of flagships usually bring a chipset upgrade as well. But rumors suggest that since Qualcomm is unlikely to launch 8+ Gen 2 this time, Xiaomi is also skipping the 13S series.
Anyway, the vanilla 13T will be rebranded as Redmi K60 Extreme Edition or K60 Ultra in China. To note, the Redmi K50 Extreme Edition was rebranded as the Xiaomi 12T Pro with some minor changes. So, we can expect something similar this year as well.
Other than this, there are no specification leaks as of now but this series could compromise on some aspects over the regular Xiaomi 13 series to hit a lower price tag.
Xiaomi 13T Series Launch and Availability:
Xiaomi 13T lineup is expected to launch later this year (around Q4) in Asia and Europe as per the leaks. However, there is no info on their pricing as of now.
