The Xiaomi 14 Ultra could launch sooner than expected. The phone will allegedly launch in Q1 2024, with a Sony LYT-900 camera sensor. This information comes from a well-known Chinese tipster, Digital Chat Station. Considering the source, we’re taking this rumor seriously.
The Xiaomi 14 Ultra flagship could launch sooner than expected
As a reminder, the Xiaomi 14 and Xiaomi 14 Pro launched quite recently, actually. The Xiaomi 13 Ultra arrived in April last year, and its successor will launch sooner than some people thought it would.
Regardless of when in Q1 2024 it arrives, it will launch sooner in the year than its predecessor did. Now, the tipster also mentioned that the phone’s display will be curved, but only barely.
The same source said that Xiaomi is testing the Sony LYT-900 aka Sony LYTIA 900 sensor. That is the most powerful Sony LYTIA sensor in the newest lineup, and it will likely be used in the Xiaomi 14 Ultra.
It’s tipped to include four powerful cameras on the back
That camera is expected to be backed by a 50-megapixel ultrawide unit. A 50-megapixel telephoto camera (3x optical zoom, macro mode) will also be included on the back. The last camera on the back will be a 50-megapixel periscope telephoto camera (5x optical zoom).
The Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 will almost certainly fuel this smartphone. That is the same chip that fuels the Xiaomi 14 and Xiaomi 14 Pro, it’s the most powerful chipset Qualcomm announced to date.
The Xiaomi 14 Ultra will feature a huge display too. The Xiaomi 13 Ultra has a 6.73-inch panel, and the Xiaomi 14 Ultra’s will be similar in size, if not bigger. A 120Hz display is expected, of an LTPO variety (1-120Hz). It will also be immensely bright, the Xiaomi 14 and Xiaomi 14 Pro have the brightest displays in the industry now.
Android 14 will come pre-installed on the Xiaomi 14 Ultra, and on top of it, you’ll get Xiaomi’s HyperOS skin. The phone will include stereo speakers, and it will be water and dust-resistant too.
