Xiaomi 14 Ultra Announced in China Ahead of MWC 2024

Xiaomi 14 Ultra Announced in China Ahead of MWC 2024

Xiaomi is set to make its presence felt at MWC 2024 with the 14 series, and it has decided to reveal more about the Ultra in China a few days before the annual conference. While it shares the same design language as last year’s 13 Ultra, there’s a blue colorway that uses “Dragon Crystal” and is around 5 grams heavier than the black and white models that use a faux leather back. There’s also a Titanium edition that makes use of grade 5 Titanium for its frame.

You still get the same four 50-megapixel rear camera setup that provides a 0.5x, 1x, 3.2x, and 5x coverage–but the main camera uses a new LYT-900 sensor that claims to have a faster readout performance compared to the 13 Ultra’s IMX989. The dual aperture is still there, but the 14 Ultra is brighter with a f/1.63-f/4.0 aperture (the 13 Ultra has a f/1.9-f/4.0 aperture instead). Also new is the Summilux branding, which refers to the brighter aperture on the Xiaomi 14 Ultra.

The rest of the cameras remain the same, though the 5x periscope now boasts a brighter f/2.5 aperture. The main camera can shoot 4K video at 120FPS and has an Ultra RAW feature that makes use of all of the computational photography smarts and save it as a full-sized DNG file.

On paper, the display of the Xiaomi 14 Ultra is a 6.73-inch 120hz LTPO AMOLED panel and like the rest of the 14 series, it is brighter at 3000nits. The display is protected by Xiaomi’s Shield Glass, which they claim 10x higher drop resistance than the competition. The 14 Ultra’s display has subtle curves that Xiaomi calls “All-Around Liquid display”.

The battery is the same at 5000mAh and supports 90w wired and 80w wireless charging. The Titanium Edition adds 2-way satellite connectivity, and like the rest of the Xiaomi 14 line is powered by a Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 processor.

Here’s the pricing of all Xiaomi 14 Ultra variants:

  • 12GB/256GB – CNY 6499(~Php 51k)
  • 16GB/512GB – CNY 6999(~Php 55k)
  • 16GB/1TB – CNY 7799 (~Php 61k)
  • Titanium Edition – CNY 8799(~Php 69k)

While the Xiaomi 14 Ultra is going to be made available globally unlike the Pro model, Xiaomi Philippines has yet to confirm if it will be arriving in the country. 

There will be a Photography kit as well that includes a case, a hand strap, a camera grip with its own set of controls, and attachments for filters.
