Last week brought us the first leaked specs Xiaomi 14 series and we now have our first look at an early schematic of the base Xiaomi 14. The illustration was shared by tipster Digital Chat Station who holds a solid track record for Xiaomi device leaks though as always this image may differ from the final design.
Xiaomi 14 will bring a flat screen with slim bezels and a centered punch-hole cutout which looks in line with its predecessor. Moving around the back we can see a similar square camera island to the Xiaomi 13 series but with larger cutouts for the main and telephoto camera sensors. The other two cutouts are likely for the ultrawide camera sensor and the LED flash.
According to last week’s tipped specs, Xiaomi 14 will boast a Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 chipset and a 4,860 mAh battery with 90W fast wired charging and 50W wireless charging. Xiaomi 14 Pro is expected to debut with the same chipset and a larger 5,000 mAh battery with 120W wired and 50W wireless charging.
