Xiaomi has announced that the global announcement of its flagship smartphones, the Xiaomi 14 series, will take place on February 25, the day before the start of the international electronics exhibition MWC 2024. On this occasion, the manufacturer will hold a special event in Barcelona. As part of this event, the announcement of the Xiaomi 14 Ultra smartphone is also expected.
A poster published by the company on social networks hints that along with the compact Xiaomi 14 model, the manufacturer will also present another version. Still, the series is clearly more than one smartphone. It is speculated that it will be the Xiaomi 14 Ultra device, which will appear in international markets instead of the Xiaomi 14 Pro. The latter will continue to be sold only in China.
On the page of the official Xiaomi website dedicated to the upcoming event, it is reported that “the new generation of Leica optics has reached new heights.” This is very likely a hint at the use of a wider, adjustable aperture in the main camera of the Xiaomi 14 Ultra, which has been rumored for some time.
It is expected that the main sensor of the Xiaomi 14 Ultra camera will be a 50-megapixel Sony LYT-900 sensor with a faster variable aperture f/1.6-f/4.0 compared to the adjustable optics f/1.9 – f/4.0 in the Xiaomi 13 Ultra model .
Along with the international launch of Xiaomi 14 smartphones, the announcement of the Xiaomi Pad 7 Android tablet is also expected.
