When Xiaomi Releases Its New Flagship Phones, Will The Camera Be Downgraded?
Xiaomi has sent off its most recent lead telephones, the Xiaomi 14 Ace, and its somewhat more standard kin, the Xiaomi 14.
Xiaomi 14 Master
As far as camera equipment, the 14 Master gives off an impression of being practically indistinguishable from its ancestor, the Xiaomi 13 Star, yet in one key region the new telephone could be viewed as a minimization. Where the 13 Expert stuffed a huge 1.0″- type essential camera sensor, the 14 Genius utilizes a more modest 1/1.31″ sensor. Both have a 50MP goal, so the new telephone has 1.2µm pixels where the old Xiaomi 13 Master could flaunt bigger 1.6µm pixels, hypothetically giving expanded light responsiveness and hence better low light execution.
Nonetheless, the 14 Master has a secret weapon. Its new Leica-created 23mm-equiv. focal point includes a f/1.42-f/4 variable gap – a noticeable improvement over the f/1.9 focal point in the 13 Ace. Whether this additional greatest opening size is sufficient to conquer the decreased light awareness from the more modest sensor is not yet clear. Likewise with the 13 Master, the 14 Star’s essential camera gets optical picture adjustment, double pixel PDAF, as well as manual opening control in 1/3 EV steps.
The Xiaomi 14 Genius likewise acquires a similar Leica-marked ultrawide and fax cameras from the 13 Star, both with a 50MP goal. The 14mm-equiv. ultrawide snapper has a 115-degree field of view and a f/2.2 max opening, while the 75mm-equiv. fax module empowers 3.2x optical zoom while profiting from OIS and a f/2 gap. Like the 13 Star, the 14 Ace is fit for catching 8K HDR video at 24fps, and 4K video at up to 60fps.
Albeit the 14 Genius has a similar 6.73-inch show size, 1440 x 3200 goal and 1-120Hz variable revive rate AMOLED tech as its ancestor, the 14 Master’s screen specs have been redesigned somewhere else. The new telephone currently flaunts a higher 3,000-nit top brilliance, 68 billion showcase tones, while holding a similar Dolby Vision and HDR10+ support. The 14 Genius likewise jettison the 13 Star’s Corning Gorilla Glass Victus screen security for Xiaomi’s own Ceramic Glass. This is said to embrace “an extraordinary powder equation that is warmed at over 800℃, and through precious stone development, microcrystals are created, which structure an interlocking construction and become equitably scattered in the glass. This plan permits Xiaomi Clay Glass to far surpass the strength of common glass, flaunting multiple times higher drop opposition and 1.25 times higher scratch obstruction while keeping up with high straightforwardness.”
The Xiaomi 14 Ace is based around a Qualcomm SM8650-Stomach muscle Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 SoC with 12GB or 16GB of Slam and up to 1TB of interior stockpiling. The 4880mAh battery upholds 120W wired charging and 50W remote HyperCharge.
The Xiaomi 14 Master is accessible to pre-request in China, in dark, white, or green variety choices, valued at CNY 4,999 (approx. USD $684) for the 12/256GB base model, through to CNY 5,999 (approx. USD $821) for the 16GB/1TB variation. Worldwide accessibility and territorial estimating still can’t seem to be affirmed.
The Xiaomi 14 is situated as a more smaller and marginally less expensive option in contrast to the 14 Master. Its 152.8mm x 71.5mm x 8.2mm size compares to a 6.36-inch screen size. These figures all match those of the old Xiaomi 13, however the new model gets a higher goal 1200 x 2670 OLED show, presently with variable revive rate, and an essentially higher pinnacle splendor of 3,000 nits.
Camera equipment is practically indistinguishable from that of the 14 Master, meaning a triplet of 50MP back confronting cameras – a beneficial update over the 50MP/10MP/12MP wide/fax/ultrawide config in the Xiaomi 13. However the wide-point modules in the Xiaomi 13 and 14 offer a similar 50MP goal, the 1/1.49″ sensor in the ’13 has been traded for a similar 1/1.31″ sensor as in the 14 Ace. The main contrast between the camera equipment in the 14 and 14 Genius is the more modest telephone needs to manage without the f/1.42-4 variable gap focal point, rather using a proper f/1.6 iris. That is as yet an improvement over the f/1.8 max gap of the Xiaomi 13 however, and Xiaomi is guaranteeing up to 180% better light responsiveness accordingly.
The Xiaomi 14 is outfitted with a Qualcomm SM8650-Stomach muscle Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 SoC and up to 16RAM and 1TB of stockpiling. Its 4610mAh battery can be energized at to 90W wired and 50W remote.
