Xiaomi 13 and 13 Pro were officially announced in China today, and like almost all of Apple’s competitors, this device pulls no punches when comparing its latest flagship to the iPhone 14. When it comes to heatsinking, Xiaomi claims its latest offering beats Apple. lineup while participating in games.
The improvement of the heat on the Xiaomi 13 could be thanks to the use of a vapor chamber cooler
Before even the official announcement, Xiaomi has targeted Apple’s A16 Bionic in November. In a teaser, the company stated that the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2, Qualcomm’s latest chipset, is housed inside the 13 and 13 Pro and delivers a 42 percent improvement in GPU performance, surpassing the A16 Bionic. While no numbers have been shared to support this claim, a new comparison revealed that the Xiaomi 13 is said to outperform the iPhone 14 in temperatures.
on twitter, Alvin Share the image, with the Chinese giant announcing that its latest flagship can run 8.2 degrees Celsius cooler, likely due to the use of a vapor chamber cooler, which Apple skipped for the iPhone 14 this year in favor of graphite sheets. In a small disclaimer that some readers of the comparison may not notice, the machine learning translation states that the benchmark was conducted in an environment with an ambient temperature of 25°C.

Xiaomi mentions that the differences will vary if the ambient temperature drops or rises, so even if you have both devices in your possession, you probably won’t see the same thermal results. Like the A16 Bionic, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 is mass-produced based on TSMC’s 4nm architecture, which is what gives silicon its efficient properties. If Samsung was responsible for mass production of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2, the story might be different.
Apple may have skipped using a vapor chamber cooler this year due to space constraints or maintaining the weight of all of its iPhone 14 models. Hopefully, the company will make an effort to use this effective solution for the iPhone 15. Naturally, we will see more results on how the Xiaomi 13 performs when the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 is pushed hard in future benchmarks, so stay tuned.
