Official Xiaomi 14 renders break cover just days before launch
- Xiaomi has published official renders of the Xiaomi 14.
- These images confirm a triple rear camera, punch hole camera, and a flat display.
- The company also included camera specs for its primary snapper.
We finally received confirmation of the Xiaomi 14‘s launch date on Monday. Today, the company revealed a first official look at the smartphone, including specific camera details.
Until now, we’ve only seen leaked renders of the Xiaomi 14 Pro and none of the baseline model. However, Xiaomi has now come forward with the renders of the latter.
Published on Weibo, the renders suggest that the Xiaomi 14 should share many aesthetic traits with its bigger sibling and predecessor. These include the iPhone-like flat metal sides and flat display. The Xiaomi 14 also features a punch-hole selfie camera in its 6.36-inch screen, and at its rear, a square camera array on its top left corner housing three lenses.
Xiaomi 14 camera specs revealed
In another post, Xiaomi teased the specs of its main camera. The snapper will feature a 1/1.31-inch primary sensor with 1.2um pixels that can be binned up to 2.4um when required. Although Xiaomi teases that the sensor comes from a “new image sensor brand,” those specs closely align with Samsung’s 50MP GN1 used on the Pixel 7 series. The Xiaomi 13 employed the Sony IMX800, so it’s possible Xiaomi could be alluding to the switch from one sensor supplier to another.
As for the glass, a Leica Summulix lens with an f/1.6 aperture is quoted. This wider eye should allow access to more light than the Xiaomi 13’s primary camera, which uses an f/1.8 aperture lens.
Of course, we’ll only know how the Xiaomi 14’s cameras perform in practice once the device debuts. Thankfully, we don’t have to wait too long. The phone will break cover on October 26, but it’s fair to expect more teasers from its parent company before then.
