The Xiaomi 14 hardly keeps any secrets: the brightest panel on the market and the best Qualcomm processor

There is only one day left to meet the Xiaomi 14, a model that will arrive alongside the Pro variant. The company itself is sharing through Weibo several key aspects of the “base” model, a high-end model that will have top-level specifications, despite of being somewhat more economical than its older brother.

The brightest screen on the market (at least on paper), the best processor on the market and a redesigned operating system. The Xiaomi 14 will become one of the most ambitious phones of the moment.

The recently presented Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 3, on paper the best processor of the moment (or that’s what the benchmarks say), will be the processor chosen for Xiaomi’s new high-end generation. There is no news yet about the RAM and internal storage that it would incorporate.

Regarding the panel, it will be relatively small, 6.36 inches. The resolution would be 1.5K, slightly higher than FHD+ and offering 460 pixels per inch. The most striking thing is the peak brightness: 3,000 nits. It remains to be seen if the figure is completely real and in what percentage of the panel they are noticeable, but on paper it cannot paint any better. The refresh rate will be up to 120 Hz, dropping to 1 Hz thanks to LTPO technology.

At a photographic level, the collaboration with Leica is confirmed and, although there is no official news about megapixels, we know that the sensor will be completely new. Likewise, the camera will be triple: ultra wide angle, wide angle and telephoto lens.

Tomorrow we will know the rest of the specifications of this model, the first to arrive with HyperOS, the redesign of MIUI that goes beyond a layer of customization. Xiaomi claims to have modified much of the Android code to create a complete “operating system”, which it will share with the rest of the products in its ecosystem.
