Xiaomi 14 Ultra Battery Details
As reported by China-based publication CNMO, the upcoming Xiaomi 14 Ultra is expected to pack a substantial 5,500mAh battery, which marks a notable improvement over the Xiaomi 13 Ultra’s 5,000mAh battery. This upgrade could potentially contribute to increasing the overall weight of the device. The report suggests that Xiaomi aims to enhance the camera capabilities of the flagship by providing a larger battery, which will increase the duration of camera sessions.
Apart from increasing the battery, Xiaomi is reportedly in the process of improving the quad-camera configuration found on the Xiaomi 13 Ultra. Speculations suggest that the Xiaomi 14 Ultra may have a titanium body, similar to the special titanium edition of the Xiaomi 14 Pro. Furthermore, there is a possibility that the flagship device may come equipped with a HyperOS operating system. While the Xiaomi 14 and Xiaomi 14 Pro already ship with HyperOS in China, Xiaomi has not yet extended the feature to its global models.
Like most flagships coming out these days, the Xiaomi 14 Ultra is expected to include cutting-edge features like a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 chipset, Huawei optics, an OLED display, and support for rapid charging. The device is rumored to have a Sony LYT-900 sensor with DCG technology. Additionally, the primary sensor may be accompanied by a 50MP ultrawide sensor, a 50MP 3x zoom sensor with macro mode, and a 50MP 5x zoom sensor.
