Xiaomi’s Android flagship lineup of devices has started to carve out a different niche for itself in the field of smartphone photography. The company has done amazing work on cameras over the past few years, especially with their ‘Ultra’ models. But now it is heard that the camera of the upcoming Xiaomi 14 series non-ultra models will also see special improvements. A well-known and reliable Chinese tipster has leaked the camera details of the new Xiaomi 14 and Xiaomi 14 Pro on the internet, which points to the same. Let’s find out what information has come out about the Xiaomi 14 series.
Xiaomi 14 and Xiaomi 14 Pro will get a new periscope camera
The tipster posted on digital chat station Weibo (a Chinese microblogging site) that the Xiaomi 14 and Xiaomi 14 Pro are going to get improved optical zoom capabilities. Both these smartphones will feature a Periscope camera setup, which is not seen in the current generation models.
