Xiaomi 14 Series Confirmed to Launch Globally on February 25

Xiaomi unveiled its 14 series in China back in October 2023, featuring the debut of Xiaomi's new HyperOS user interface. The highly anticipated Ultra model, speculated to be the flagship handset, was initially rumored to launch during the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2024. 

However, the company has now confirmed the global launch date for the Xiaomi 14 series, with the Ultra model likely to be introduced alongside the Xiaomi 14 and Xiaomi 14 Pro later this month.

Xiaomi CEO Lei Jun announced on X that the Xiaomi 14 series will have its global launch on February 25, just ahead of the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2024, scheduled from February 26 to February 29. 

Although the global launch date of the lineup has been shared, it remains unclear if the purported Ultra model will also make its global debut alongside the other models.

The rumored Xiaomi 14 Ultra was recently spotted on Geekbench with the model number 24030PN60G. It is anticipated to feature a Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 SoC paired with an Adreno 750 GPU and up to 16GB of RAM, running on Android 14-based HyperOS. 

The device is likely to sport a 6.7-inch 2K AMOLED 120Hz display, an ultrasonic in-display fingerprint sensor, and a quad rear camera setup led by a 50-megapixel Sony LYT-900 primary sensor. Xiaomi could equip the device with a 5,180mAh battery supporting 90W wired and 50W wireless charging.

Meanwhile, the global variants of the Xiaomi 14 and Xiaomi 14 Pro are expected to mirror the specifications of their Chinese counterparts. The Pro model in China features a 6.73-inch 2K LTPO screen, a Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 chipset paired with up to 16GB of LPDDR5X RAM, and up to 1TB of UFS 4.0 onboard storage. 

The base model shares similar specifications but comes with a 6.36-inch LTPO AMOLED 1.5K display. The Pro model boasts a 4,880mAh battery with 120W wired, 50W wireless, and 10W wireless reverse charging support, while the base model carries a 4,610mAh battery with similar charging capabilities.

For optics, the Xiaomi 14 Pro features a Leica-branded triple rear camera setup comprising a 50-megapixel primary sensor with optical image stabilization (OIS), a 50-megapixel telephoto shooter, and a 50-megapixel ultra-wide-angle lens. 

The front camera houses a 32-megapixel sensor. In China, the Pro model starts at CNY 4,999 (roughly Rs. 56,500) for the 12GB + 256GB option, while the base model starts at CNY 3,999 (roughly Rs. 50,000) for the 8GB + 256GB variant.
