Xiaomi 14 Pro will not see a global release

Xiaomi’s latest flagship smartphone, the Xiaomi 14, will make its global debut on February 25. According to a new leak from Techmaniacs, the starting price of the smartphone in Greece will be €1,099 for a model with 12GB of RAM and 512GB of storage.

That’s more than the price of the Xiaomi 13, which launched last year for 999 euros with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage. And, unfortunately, it seems that outside of China, Xiaomi is not so generous with RAM.

The Chinese Xiaomi 14 models with 512GB of storage (or more) boast an impressive 16GB of RAM, but it seems that this has been reduced for global consumers, as a leak shows that the 512GB variant is paired with 12GB of RAM.

On the other hand, the leak also confirms previous rumors that the Pro version of the Xiaomi 14 will remain exclusive to China. This is likely because the company will also launch the Xiaomi 14 Ultra alongside the vanilla model.

Thus, Xiaomi seems to be betting that consumers will either choose the basic Xiaomi 14 or go all-in on the feature-rich Ultra. This may make the Xiaomi 14 Pro a less desirable option among consumers.

In addition, a recent report suggests that a special titanium edition of the Xiaomi 14 Ultra is in the works, which is said to be available only in a 16GB + 1TB configuration.

There will also be a standard model in a 16GB+1TB configuration, which is expected to start at 7299 yuan (~US$1,000), but the titanium edition will cost at least 500 yuan (~US$70) more.

Regardless, both the vanilla and Ultra models will be packed with flagship features such as a Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 processor, a co-developed Leica camera, and a high-resolution AMOLED display. We’ll be sure to keep you updated on the Xiaomi 14 series as soon as any new details become available.
