Rumor | Xiaomi 14 mimics own predecessor in new schematic

The Xiaomi 14 is expected to emerge as a Snapdragon 8 Gen 3-powered upgrade over its 2022/3 forebear. However, these improved specs may come in a package almost unchanged in terms of looks, according to a new leak. Therefore, fans of this flagship Android smartphone series might stand to expect yet more boxy camera humps - with more nearly bezel-less flat screens, at least.

Xiaomi's (non-Ultra) flagship smartphones have fallen into a slump in terms of design, particularly around the rear cameras, since the 12 series. Now, famous leaker Digital Chat Station may have dashed hopes of any relief from this monotony in a new Weibo post.

It consists of a diagram that seems to depict a camera hump strikingly like that of the Xiaomi 13 or 13 Pro, even if it contains triple lenses, separated by signature interior borders in slightly different places this time around. 2 of these lenses seem to have grown to an identical size, which just might hint at a dual main camera set-up in this generation.

Then again, the display as shown next to this apparently largely unchanged rear panel is flat with a profound lack of bezel, thereby possibly hinting that the new leak pertains to the vanilla 14 only. Accordingly, this just might leave scope for a 14 Pro with a refreshingly overhauled Mix Fold 2-like camera visor as currently rumored.

Nevertheless, this new tip suggests that Xiaomi has yet again decided that its mobile device design is yet again in no need of fixing in 2023.
