Launch of Xiaomi 14 Ultra on February 25
Many domestic smartphone manufacturers are making efforts in the overseas smartphone market nowadays. Even new models might be released first in the foreign market before being launched in the domestic market.
Due to the fierce competition in the current domestic smartphone market, in order to further increase sales, it is necessary to expand beyond the domestic market and make a strong impact in the overseas market.
Taking Xiaomi smartphones as an example, its development pace in recent years has been very fast. Not only does it achieve high sales in overseas markets, but its popularity is also comparable to its competitors.
The highlight is that as time goes by, the author found out that the Xiaomi 14 Ultra is already on the way and is expected to be officially released on February 25.
The reason for this news is that the Xiaomi 14 series smartphones will be launched in Barcelona, Spain on February 25, just a day before MWC 2024.
If everything goes smoothly, Xiaomi 14 Ultra will meet everyone at this time, which is very close to the previously leaked release at the end of February.
This also means that Mi fans will see the new model being released in the upcoming time and get to meet it, which is good news for users who are considering an upgrade.
Of course, this release should start with the international version first, and it’s expected that there will also be a new launch event in the domestic market. It’s just uncertain whether the overseas version will hear Lei Jun’s “Are you ok”.
Besides the anticipation for the release of Xiaomi 14 Ultra, Xiaomi 14 and Xiaomi 14 Pro will also debut, so stay tuned for that.
Moreover, the countdown for the Xiaomi 14 series teaser posters has begun. For overseas users, this is also considered very good news.
The key point is the significant improvement in Xiaomi 14 Ultra. Previously, the renderings of its appearance were released, featuring the same four-curved micro-curved design as Xiaomi 14 Pro.
It will also feature a metal square edge frame, a camera module similar to the previous generation with a large circular design. However, it has abandoned the arched back of the previous generation in favor of the iconic Paris nail metal ring on the Xiaomi 14 series.
In addition to its appearance, the core selling point of Xiaomi 14 Ultra is also becoming clear, especially in terms of camera performance, which will be a crucial design element.
The main camera will use the Sony LY910 sensor and will be equipped with three 50-megapixel lenses, including ultra-wide-angle, telephoto, and periscopic telephoto lenses.
The LY910 is Sony’s most powerful mobile sensor, with a 1-inch large sensor size, and the new device also supports an f/1.63-f/4.0 variable aperture.
More importantly, Xiaomi 14 Ultra will continue to feature Leica imaging. The quad-camera setup will be upgraded to Leica SUMMILUX, providing truly outstanding shooting results.
Regarding the core specifications, there is little suspense. It will feature the current flagship standard: the Snapdragon 8 Gen3 processor, LPDDR5X, and USF4.0 combination.
It will also be powered by a 12GB+256GB memory combination, with the possibility of a 1TB memory version, which is highly anticipated.
Moreover, the battery life will be impressive, expected to have a built-in 5180mAh battery, supporting 90W wired fast charging and 50W wireless fast charging speeds.
It will also support satellite communication, IP68 dust and water resistance, as well as features like full-function NFC, infrared remote control, dual speakers, and X-axis linear motor.
Furthermore, Xiaomi 14 Ultra’s front screen quality will also be top-notch, reportedly featuring a 6.8-inch OLED quad-curved display.
This screen will support 2K 8T specifications, 1-120Hz LTPO refresh rates, and 3840Hz high-frequency PWM dimming, meeting users’ basic display needs.
Regarding the system, it will come with the Penglai OS. Rumor has it that version 2.0 is already on the way, but it’s uncertain when it will truly be unveiled.
In terms of price, it is said to be a few hundred yuan higher than Xiaomi 13 Ultra. For users looking to upgrade, this is also something to consider carefully.
Finally, Xiaomi 14 Ultra is expected to offer a higher cost-performance ratio, which will be very attractive to users who value configuration parameters.
