Xiaomi 14 Ultra: Pro-class camera phone you may have been waiting for


Xiaomi recently launched the Xiaomi 14 series in Malaysia, including the latest flagship model - the Xiaomi 14 Ultra. At a glance, it's clear that this phone is aimed at photography enthusiasts and professionals. It has a professional quad-camera configuration and a new Leica Summilux lens, so pros and Xiaomi fans can enjoy an unprecedented imaging experience!

The core of the Xiaomi 14 Ultra's photographic prowess lies in its sophisticated camera system. It's a set of four rear cameras, delivering a diverse toolkit to capture every moment with precision and clarity. Here's a quick look at what you can expect!


Quad-cam setup for all your needs



First, let's talk about the Xiaomi 14 Ultra's main camera. Under the hood, Xiaomi has packed a new 1-inch Sony LYT-900 image sensor for its main camera. This sensor combines Dual Native ISO Fusion Max technology to deliver an astounding 14EV dynamic range, ensuring every shot delivers stunning detail and colour accuracy. The variable aperture range is from f/1.63 to f/4.0, providing photographers more control under various lighting conditions. It's a level of control you don't tend to get on smartphones.

The other three rear cameras are equally good in terms of functionality. From the 50MP floating telephoto camera offering 3.2x optical zoom equivalent, to the 75mm lens, a periscope telephoto camera with 5x optical zoom equivalent to 120mm shooting, and an ultrawide-angle camera that can capture at a 12mm equivalent focal length - the Xiaomi 14 Ultra has it all. You can say this phone was designed to handle multiple photography scenarios.

75mm and 120mm lenses for those food photos

As you can see from the photos below, the Xiaomi 14 Ultra excels in macro shots, landscapes, and more. You can easily snap different types of photos using this phone with ease. Whether it's the 23mm main camera for simple sceneries, 55mm for portraits, or the 120mm for those long-range landscapes, it's all a breeze.



Great software and hardware support

However, the real star is the new Leica Summilux lens. It promises unparalleled image quality with the Xiaomi 14 Ultra! Professional photographers have long favoured Leica lenses, as they are renowned for their precision optics and exceptional expressiveness. Equipped with Summilux lenses, Xiaomi 14 Ultra users can expect flawless imaging, whether for capturing exquisite details or vast panoramas.



But it's not just the hardware - Xiaomi 14 Ultra's software enhancements take the photography experience to the next level. The Portrait mode can achieve stunning Bokeh effects using advanced algorithms, which can naturally blur the background and highlight the subject. We believe you wouldn't need an extra digital camera if you have this phone. The photo quality is so good you'd be proud to frame up the pictures you take with it.


Besides the cameras, the Xiaomi 14 Ultra packs a Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 chipset for fast and smooth performance. The 6.73-inch LTPO AMOLED screen is just as good, delivering beautiful visuals at 1~120Hz refresh rate, a resolution of 1440 x 3200, and outputting a total of 68 million colours. It also has a Xiaomi Shield Glass, boasting 10x drop resistance to protect the screen.
