Xiaomi has officially unveiled its latest models, the Xiaomi 14 and the Xiaomi 14 Pro, with further information on its Ultra model of the series gradually being disclosed.
Previously, according to a tip from the blogger @DigitalChatStation, he mentioned that “the Ultra model maintains a rectangular mid-frame and deep-curved screen. The ‘satellite communication’ option is not currently in the system setting, let’s wait and see~”
While the post didn’t specify which device series it referred to, speculation suggests it may be pointing to the next generation Xiaomi 14 Ultra.
Based on the leaked details, the new Xiaomi 14 Ultra does not appear to support satellite communication at this point. The design is described as having a rectangular middle frame and a deep-curved screen. There has, however, been differing speculation on whether it will include this feature as time progresses.
Today, the same blogger posted that “Snapdragon 8G3 has added back the satellite communication feature. The current engineering prototype’s main highlights are a 2K deep-curved quad-curved screen, a single-point ultrasonic under-screen fingerprint, a one-inch super large variable aperture, dual telephoto lens, and bi-directional satellite communication…”
Based on these leaks, the new generation of Xiaomi 14 Ultra appears to support satellite communication after all, including bi-directional satellite communication. This means it can both send and receive satellite messages, which will assist users in maintaining seamless connectivity.
Also, the new leaks indicate the Xiaomi 14 Ultra will feature a super-large one-inch variable aperture and dual telephoto lens imaging combination. Previous information has shown that this new device will come equipped with a full-focal-length quad-camera setup using the LYT900 sensor and supporting a multiple-step variable aperture from f / 1.6 to f / 4.0.
By comparison, the previous model, the Xiaomi 13 Ultra, is equipped with one IMX989 and three IMX858 lenses, creating a Leica quad-camera six-focal-length setup.
As for the front screen, the latest leaks suggest a 2K deep-curved quad-curved display, supporting a single-point ultrasonic in-display fingerprint scanner.
Previous leaks pointed towards the Xiaomi 14 Ultra featuring a micro-curved screen for an extremely narrow straight-screen experience.
Looking at the Xiaomi 13 Ultra, the predecessor, it features an ergonomic design, second-generation technology skin, an integrated metal frame, and is available in black, white, and olive green.
Considering this, the overall design scheme for the Xiaomi 14 Ultra is likely to continue the design style of the previous model.
As for specific specifications, the Xiaomi 14 Ultra is likely to house the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 processor, have a built-in battery of around 5180mAh, and support 90W wired fast charging and 50W wireless fast charging.
Looking at the current leaked information, the new Xiaomi 14 Ultra could see updates in various areas including battery, camera, body texture, screen, and fingerprint recognition.
Furthermore, aside from updates in the smartphone department, recent information has also revealed the Xiaomi Tablet 7 Pro. The leaks suggest that the Xiaomi Tablet 7 series will be launched alongside the Xiaomi 14 Ultra.
In terms of specific specifications, the latest information mentions that the Xiaomi Tablet 7 Pro is expected to have a 10,000mAh battery and support 120W fast charging; come equipped with a 10-inch LCD screen with 1480 x 2367 resolution, and support a 144Hz refresh rate, powered by Snapdragon 8 Gen 2.
As a reference, the previous model, the Xiaomi Tablet 6, features an 11-inch LCD display with a resolution of 2880*1800, supports up to a 144Hz refresh rate; it is powered by a Snapdragon 870, fitted with an 8840mAh battery and 33W fast charging, and has a 13MP main camera in the back.
