Xiaomi is reportedly working on the Xiaomi 14 series of smartphones. Several reports have claimed that the Xiaomi 14 and Xiaomi 14 Pro will be the first devices to come equipped with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 chipset. A new leak, courtesy of tipster Digital Chat Station, has hinted at when Xiaomi may unveil the Xiaomi 14 series.
As can be seen in the above screenshot, the tipster claimed that Snapdragon 8 Gen 3-powered phones will be available by the end of October. Hence, it appears that the Xiaomi 14 series may go official by October’s end.
Last year, Xiaomi unveiled the Xiaomi 13 series in December 2022, while the Xiaomi 13 Ultra was announced in April. Rumors are rife that the Xiaomi 14 Ultra will launch earlier than its predecessor with reports claiming that the device will be launched in the first quarter of 2024. With the Xiaomi 14 series now tipped to launch by October’s end, it’s likely that the 14 Ultra will go official in Q1 2024.
In related news, Qualcomm is also said to be working on the Snapdragon 7 Gen 3 chipset. The SoC is expected to rival the Snapdragon 7+ Gen 2 chipset, which powers the Redmi Note 13 Turbo.
The Snapdragon 7 Gen 3 will be a 4nm chip, which is said to have the SM7750 model number. Chinese leakers are claiming that Xiaomi will be the first brand to launch a Snapdragon 7 Gen 3-powered phone.
