Xiaomi 14 Pro should win periscope camera with 5x optical zoom


Updated on:

Xiaomi should introduce its new top-of-the-line devices in a few months, and new information from the Digital Chat Station profile indicated what the device’s camera sets should look like. Both the Xiaomi 14 and the 14 Pro should gain periscope lenses as the main novelties, with a longer-range zoom.

According to the leaker, the Xiaomi 14 Pro will come with up to 5x optical zoom, with a focal length of 115mm. These are closer numbers compared to the Xiaomi 13 Ultra, but still do not reach the level of the Galaxy S23 Ultra with its 10x optical zoom.

In turn, the Xiaomi 14 may have a different periscope, with a 3.9x zoom and a focal length of 90 mm. For comparison, the Xiaomi 13 achieves magnification levels between 0.6x and 3.2x.

No new information was released about the sensors implemented in the devices. However, previous rumors have already shown that the Xiaomi 14 Pro should bring three 50 MP components on the back, including the main, ultrawide and telephoto camera.

It was also said that the smartphone’s front camera can support video recording in 4K resolution, an improvement over the Xiaomi 13 Pro which is incredibly still limited to 1080p/30.

Xiaomi 14/14 Pro: what to expect?

In addition to the cameras, previous news also indicated that the Xiaomi 14 Pro could come in two different versions, with a flat screen or with curved edges.

Both variants should have 5,000 mAh batteries, with support for 120 W recharges. This may be a differential of the device compared to the standard Xiaomi 14, expected with 90 W charging.

The serial numbers of the devices have already been revealed, with the sequences 23127PN0CC and 23127PN0CG for the Xiaomi 14, and 23116PN5BC and 23116PN5BG for the Pro model. In practice, these codes reveal some information about the availability of devices.

The beginning of the sequels (2311 and 2312) reaffirms that the devices must be shown in the last months of 2023, in a similar schedule to previous years. The presentation is expected to take place during the month of November, after the arrival of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 in October.

In addition, the letter G at the end of the code indicates the presence of global versions of devices. As has happened in previous generations, smartphones must be launched first in China, and then reach more countries.
