Xiaomi 14 series with Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 SoC and HyperOS operating system was launched in China in October last year. Now, the Chinese electronics brand seems to be gearing up to unveil Xiaomi 14 and Xiaomi 14 Pro in India. Xiaomi on Thursday (February 1) shared a teaser on social media to offer hints about the launch of the Xiaomi 14 series in the country without confirming the names. The Xiaomi 14 Ultra is expected to join the lineup soon. The Xiaomi 14 lineup flaunts a Leica-tuned triple rear camera setup.
Xiaomi India, via its official X handle (formerly Twitter), teased its partnership with Leica. The post indirectly hints that the Xiaomi 14 series with Leica-tuned cameras could make its India debut soon. However, Xiaomi didn’t confirm that it is indeed bringing the Xiaomi 14 lineup to India.
Xiaomi’s ultra-premium smartphones including Xiaomi 13 Pro and Xiaomi 13T feature camera setups co-engineered by Leica. The smartphone maker entered into a partnership with the German camera maker back in 2022. The rumoured Xiaomi 14 Ultra is also expected to carry Leica Summilux cameras.
Last year the Xiaomi 13 Pro (Review) launched in India with a price tag of Rs. 79,999 for the sole 12GB + 256GB RAM and storage configuration. The Xiaomi 13 was launched globally in February for EUR 999 (nearly Rs. 87,600), but it did not come to the Indian market.
