Details of Xiaomi’s upcoming flagship lineup have already started surfacing online. And rumors suggest that the Xiaomi 14 and Xiaomi 14 Pro will finally bring a 4K selfie video recording option and a periscope zoom camera. So let’s check out all the leaks and rumors surrounding the Xiaomi 14 and Xiaomi 14 Pro.
Xiaomi 14 Series Rumors:
The model numbers of upcoming Xiaomi flagships have leaked. Xiaomi 14 goes by “23127PN0CC” in China and “23127PN0CG” in the global market, whereas the Xiaomi 14 Pro’s respective model numbers are “23116PN5BC” and “23116PN5BG”.
First off, the display. Reliable tipster Ice Universe has leaked the possible renders of Xiaomi and 14 Pro’s screen. And it looks like Xiaomi has managed to trim down the already thin bezels of the Xiaomi 13 and Xiaomi 13 Pro. Especially at the top and bottom.
According to rumors, the next Xiaomi flagships will be powered by the upcoming Snapdragon Gen 3. This chip is scheduled to come out later in October, and the Xiaomi 14 lineup will probably be one of the first phones to use 8 Gen 3. Also, this 14 series will bring about up to 1TB of storage while the 13 series gave space limited to 512GB.
Other than this, these Xiaomi phones will also bear a faster USB 3.2 (Type-C, of course) protocol, which will also be able to connect up to a 4K external display. In the Xiaomi 13 lineup, only the Xiaomi 13 Ultra brings a USB 3.2 Type-C port while the rest of the phones equip a slower USB 2.0 Type-C connection.
