Xiaomi’s Android flagship lineup has started to make a name for itself in the smartphone photography space. The company has done incredible work in the last few years, especially with Ultra models as noted by us in our Xiaomi 13 Ultra first impressions. It now seems to be gearing up to show some more love to non-Ultra cameras with the upcoming Xiaomi 14 series. A fresh leak has emerged revealing new Xiaomi 14 and Xiaomi 14 Pro camera details.

Xiaomi 14 and Xiaomi 14 Pro Periscope Camera Leak

Digital Chat Station, a well-known and reliable Weibo-based tipster, has shared that Xiaomi 14 and Xiaomi 14 Pro are set to get improved optical zoom capabilities. Both these smartphones are tipped to come with a periscope camera setup which we do not see on the current-gen models.

Vanilla Xiaomi 14’s camera sensor is said to deliver up to 3.9x optical zoom and have a 90mm focal length. The Xiaomi 14 Pro will reportedly offer up to 5x optical zoom and have a 115m focal length. It means users will be able to zoom in further while clicking photos without worrying about losing the image quality.

This is a good improvement over the 3.2x optical zoom and 75mm focal length available on the Xiaomi 13 and Xiaomi 13 Pro. However, the leak does not mention other camera specifications like the sensor type and megapixel count. We can expect to know these missing details in future leaks.

One model will have a flat display with 2.5D glass and the other one will have a curved display with 3D glass. The wired fast charging speed will be 90W and 120W respectively.

The Xiaomi 14 Pro is further rumoured to be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 processor. It is an upcoming flagship processor that will power the majority of 2024 Android flagships.
