It doesn’t feel like it has been that long since the Xiaomi 14 launched, but boy does time fly! It’s about time we get the follow-up to that phone i.e. Xiaomi 15. As you may have guessed, rumours about the upcoming phone have already surfaced. Hence, we are here to discuss all the rumours surrounding Xiaomi 15 in this article.

Xiaomi 15 Rumours Round-up

Before we start talking about the phone, I would like to accredit Digital Chat Station for all the available information about the Xiaomi 15.

Performance

The Xiaomi 14 launched as the first phone to ship with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3, and it appears the case will be the same for their successor too. This means that the upcoming Xiaomi 15 will be the first-ever smartphone to ship with the next-gen chip from Qualcomm.

Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 4

There are already some words floating around about the Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 including leaked benchmark scores, and performance issues. Furthermore, looking at the rumoured core counts it appears that the upcoming chip will follow the latest Arm CSS architecture. If that turns out to be true, we might finally see TSMC’s 3nm fabrication on Android phones.

Other than that, it seems the phone will be available with 16GB RAM and 1TB storage as the highest configuration.

Design and Display

There is no information about or leaks suggesting any design changes in the Xiaomi 15. Hence, the phone’s outlook will most likely remain the same. Additionally, the frames will likely be made of steel while the back panel of the phone will be either glass or synthetic leather. Meanwhile, the colour options will include Black, and White, at the very least.

Moving on to the front, the Xiaomi 15 will apparently have a 1.5K LTPO screen with flat edges. Moreover, it will have an ultrasonic fingerprint scanner buried underneath the panel for biometric reading.

Cameras

In terms of cameras, the upcoming Xiaomi flagship will have a three-piece set at the back, all of which will be of 50MP resolution. The primary shooter will be coupled with a 1/1.3-inch sensor.

The auxiliary lenses will include an ultrawide shooter, and a 3x vertical telephoto/macro snapper. We can expect the Leica partnership to carry on in the Xiaomi 15 as well.

Xiaomi 15 Launch and Availability

Xiaomi announced its current flagship near the end of October last year and started shipping it in November. Hence, the Xiaomi 15 might also follow suit. Furthermore, Qualcomm is reportedly launching the Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 at the beginning of October 2024. Usually, the first phone with the newly launched SoC is announced within the first few weeks or days even.

Given that, sources are expecting the announcement of Xiaomi 15 to happen somewhere around mid-October, which might turn out to be the case.
