The first solid indications of the next generation phone are now hitting the internet and revealing an amazing Android smartphone that is expected to replace the current Xiaomi 13 Ultra. The task will fall on the Xiaomi 14 Pro+ whose technical characteristics now reach the Internet.
Specifically, it will be a mobile dedicated to photography, like the current 13 Ultra model. For this, it will have 4 50 MP cameras, one of them with a telephoto lens with periscopic optics to allow a total increase, or zoom up to 120x (times).
Xiaomi 14 Pro+ will be one of the best smartphones of 2024
After placing the most advanced model in the Xiaomi 13 range on the market, the Xiaomi 13 Ultra, which we have not yet had the opportunity to see in Portugal, we are already looking at its possible successor. That is what the inexorable advance of technology forces, driven by the annual cycle of cell phone renewals.
At issue now is the leak of information disclosed by colleagues in the publication. NotebookCheck, referring there to the Xiaomi 14 Pro+ (Plus). That is, instead of an Ultra model, we will possibly have a Pro Plus model, or simply Pro +.
This mobile phone will represent the pinnacle of mobile photography and will partner with Leica to improve its photographic system. By the way, this department will consist of four rear cameras, all with a resolution of 50 MP and different optics.
Range made up of (at least) three Xiaomi 14 models
Therefore, we will have the following models to make up the next range of the Chinese manufacturer led by Lei Jun:
- Xiaomi 14
- Xiomi 14 Pro (or Plus)
- Xiaomi 14 Pro+ (or Ultra)
So far we have seen some schematic images associated with this range, without being able to confirm, for the moment, their veracity. In any case, an angular design is expected, with a focus on the rear photographic module.
It should also be noted that the trio of Android smartphones should maintain the same aesthetics between the three models. Therefore, the design assumed by the Xiaomi 14 model should also be followed by the Pro and/or Pro+/Ultra models, as indicated by the first information leaks.
Below we can see one of the first posts on Twitter/X with the possible design of the smartphone, as well as some of the main technical specifications indicated.
So we have a screen flat OLEDmeaning there are no curved edges on this base phone. It will also have a 50 MP triple camera on the back, with a larger photographic module compared to the current generation.
Finally, its construction will be in metal and glass, maintaining the appearance and construction premium. For now we do not have more details or technical characteristics of this mobile device that should only debut at the end of this year in China and in 2024 in Europe.
Zoom up to 120x on the Xiaomi 14 Pro+ model
In any case, once the foundations for the Xiaomi 14 have been established, it is on the Pro+ model that we will focus on this piece. As a result, we have incredible full image magnification capabilities – a combination of optical image magnification and digital magnification.
In other words, in these top Xiaomi 14 mobile phones we will have a combination of optical zoom and digital zoom to offer a total magnification of up to 120 times. Very similar to what we already have in the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra, for example.
To make this improvement possible, the information leaks suggest the introduction of new sensors developed by sony and to omnivisionboth will appear in upcoming Xiaomi mobile phones.
In addition, the source points to a strong improvement in night captures, that is, in night photography and in the ability of the sensors to capture more light. Meaning, photography will get even better with the enhanced capabilities of this top-of-the-line model for 2024.
Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 processor
Among the few certainties we have so far is the use of high-end Qualcomm processors. Xiaomi has one of the longest partnerships with North American Qualcomm, always using its latest high-end processors in new smartphones. premium.
As such, it is only expected that the next range of high-end mobile phones will employ, as soon as possible, the next generation of Qualcomm processors. At issue now are the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3s due to be unveiled later this year.
Finally, it should be noted that the Xiaomi 14 range should only reach stores in Europe in the first quarter of 2024. In any case, it could be presented in China at the end of this year, 2023.
