Xiaomi 14 Ultra Price May Exceed Predecessor’s Cost

Oh, the buzz is real! Xiaomi’s gearing up to drop the 14 Ultra soon. And yep, you guessed it—it’s gonna cost a bit more than the last one. Word on the street (or rather, from Digital Chat Station, China’s tipster extraordinaire) is that we’re looking at a price jump. Why, you ask? Well, it’s all about the Benjamins—or in this case, the Yuans. The Bill of Materials has shot up by over 700 CNY. That’s roughly 100 bucks more, folks. So brace yourselves for a heftier price tag on this baby.

Now, onto the juicy bits. The 14 Ultra’s flaunting a quad-camera setup, all blessed by Leica. Fancy, right? Plus, Xiaomi’s throwing in some of their own magic with self-research tech. We’re talking the whole shebang—communications, materials, batteries, you name it.

But when’s it dropping? “Soon” is all we’ve got. The next couple of months, to be vague yet slightly hopeful. And oh, the rumor mill’s been churning. Specs have been whispered about more than just a few times.

Heads up, camera buffs! We’re expecting not one, not two, but four 50MP cameras. The star? A Sony LYT-900, boasting a multi-stop variable aperture. That’s some serious photography chops, from f/1.63 all the way to f/4.0.

Battery life’s looking solid too. Rumors suggest a 5,180mAh powerhouse, with 90W wired and 50W wireless charging. And yes, before you ask, a charger’s included. No more hunting around for one.

Fingerprint tech’s getting an upgrade too. Xiaomi’s moving from optical to ultrasonic for their in-display scanner. Fancy, huh?

And for the screen lovers, expect a large AMOLED display with a smooth 120Hz refresh rate. It’s all about that LTPO panel with adaptive refresh rates. Plus, Android 14 is likely coming pre-installed, topped with Xiaomi’s HyperOS.

So, yeah. The Xiaomi 14 Ultra’s shaping up to be a beast. Stay tuned, and keep those wallets ready.
