Xiaomi 14 flagships are scheduled to arrive this month, the company confirmed on Weibo. The announcement also revealed the Leica branding will adorn the series, and the photo company will provide the “best in the field” Summilux lens for mobile phones.
The Xiaomi 14 lineup will also bring a new image sensor, but we are yet to learn which phone will have it and what will be its purpose.
The Xiaomi 14 devices are expected to have a Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 chipset, which Qualcomm will unveil on Tuesday, October 24. Lei Jun traditionally appears on stage at the Summit in Hawaii, speaking about the strong relationship between Xiaomi and Qualcomm, and more often than not, he confirms the imminent arrival of the next Xiaomi flagships.
We expect at least two phones – Xiaomi 14 and Xiaomi 14 Pro. However, they are likely to launch first in China with their new HyperOS, while a global release is most likely to happen in the first weeks of 2024.
November 11 is Singles’ Day (11.11) and is one of the biggest shopping holidays in China. Xiaomi might be looking to the increased demand around it.
