The Xiaomi 13, 13 Pro, and 13 Ultra flagship phones come with impressive cameras, which are at par with most high-end handsets available in the market. In particular, the latest Xiaomi 13 Ultra model features a Leica-tuned quad camera setup, with a 1-inch 50-megapixel resolution Summicron lens as the main camera. Initially, it was expected that the successor model will use a more advanced camera sensor. However, sources claim that the Xiaomi 14 Ultra phone will use the same 1-inch primary sensor as its predecessor. Let’s get into this in detail.
The primary sensor of Xiaomi 14 Ultra may not be changed
The Xiaomi 14 Ultra is set to be the Chinese company’s next mega flagship to take on the Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra, and just like this year’s model, the new phone is expected to offer impressive camera hardware. But now, tipster Digital Chat Station has claimed that Xiaomi is likely to use the same 1-inch camera sensor in its next-generation Ultra model as seen in the current generation Xiaomi 13 Ultra.
The tipster also says that the 1.33-inch M43 sensor is still quite large for a phone and probably won’t be seen on Xiaomi flagships anytime soon. However, the tipster has assured that the next Xiaomi 15 Ultra model will come with a major upgrade in terms of sensor size. But remember, the information given is not officially recognized yet, so time will tell how true it is. But since the past track record of digital chat stations is quite good, the possibility of them being true cannot be completely ruled out.
Note that the current generation Xiaomi 13 Ultra has a 1-inch 50-megapixel Sony IMX989 primary camera sensor on the back, which has a Leica Vario-Summicron lens. This camera supports variable aperture between f/1.9 and f/4. Along with the main camera, the smartphone packs a 50-megapixel Sony IMX858 ultrawide sensor with a 122-degree field-of-view and f/1.9 aperture and a 50-megapixel Sony IMX858 telephoto lens.
