Xiaomi 14 series: what to expect
The above-shown launch date poster of the Xiaomi 14 series showcases a ring-like design, which seems to match the rumoured round camera module of the 14 Ultra. The other proof that suggests that the Ultra model will launch on February 25 is the URL of the Xiaomi 14 series’ teaser. The URL has “N1N3” mentioned in it, which are said to be internal model numbers of the Xiaomi 14 and 14 Ultra.
The Xiaomi 14 Pro has the “N2” internal model number, but it is not mentioned in the URL. Hence, GSMChina, which highlighted this fact, claimed that the 14 Pro may not launch globally. Hence, it appears that the Xiaomi 14 and 14 Ultra will launch in markets outside of China. However, there is still no clarity as to whether the Ultra model will be released in India.
