On basis of model numbers, the Xiaomi 14 series might debut by the end of 2023.

  • Xiaomi 14 series global and Chinese variants have popped up on the IMEI database.
  • Xiaomi 14 has the model numbers 23127PN0CC and 23127PN0CG.
  • The Xiaomi 14 Pro will carry model numbers 23116PN5BC and 23116PN5BG.

Xiaomi, last month, unveiled its flagship – the Xiaomi 13 Ultra smartphone in the Chinese market. The company is gearing up for the Xiaomi 13 Ultra European debut. Ahead of the Xiaomi 13 Ultra European launch, Xiaomi’s upcoming flagship smartphone – the Xiaomi 14 series has been spotted on the IMEI database. Folks at GSMChina spotted two upcoming Xiaomi flagships – the Xiaomi 14 and the Xiaomi 14 Pro on the IMEI database.

The IMEI database listing doesn’t reveal the moniker of the handsets but it does reveal the model number of upcoming Xiaomi smartphones. The variants of the Xiaomi 14 and Xiaomi 14 Pro that are spotted on the IMEI database are for Chinese as well as global regions. The Xiaomi 14 and Xiaomi 14 Pro will be the successors of the Xiaomi 13 and Xiaomi 13 Pro and are expected to be unveiled by the end of 2023 in Xiaomi’s domestic market – China.

The certification listing suggests that the Xiaomi 14 Pro had model numbers 23116PN5BC (C represents Chinese variant) and 23116PN5BG. Whereas, model numbers 23127PN0CC and 23127PN0CG (G represents global variant) correspond to vanilla Xiaomi 14. On the basis of initial digits – 2311 and 2312 of these model numbers, we can speculate the Xiaomi 14 series to make a debut sometime in November or December in the Chinese market.

The Xiaomi 14 and Xiaomi 14 Pro are expected to be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 processor. Folks at GSMChina claim that the processor’s codename is pineapple. Qualcomm is yet to unveil Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 SoC but going by a leak, it might make a debut by October 2023. A few days back, noted Chinese tipster Digital Chat Station had revealed that the Xiaomi 14 Pro will be powered by a Qualcomm SM8650 processor.

The Xiaomi 14 Pro is tipped to feature a 5000mAh battery unit. It might feature support for 50W wireless charging. The Xiaomi 14 Pro is said to come in two variants – flat screen and curved screen. The Xiaomi 14 Pro flat screen variant might feature support for 90W fast charging. Whereas, the premium curved screen version might come with 120W fast charging support. Xiaomi will reportedly use WLG High-Lens sensors for Xiaomi 14 series in the optics department.

As of now, only this much has been leaked about the Xiaomi 14 and Xiaomi 14 Pro smartphones. We can expect Xiaomi to continue its collaboration with Leica and so the cameras on the Xiaomi 14 series might also be tuned by Leica.

We can also expect the upcoming Xiaomi flagship smartphones to pop up on other certification and benchmark websites in the coming days, which should eventually reveal more in terms of the specifications of the upcoming flagships.
