According to Xiaomi, the Xiaomi 14 series will be announced during the MWC 2024 event on February 25. Xiaomi may unveil the 14 and 14 Ultra for the global market, while the 14 Pro, which first debuted in October 2023 in China, may remain exclusive to that market. It has been speculated that Xiaomi 14 Ultra’s Chinese launch will be earlier than its global launch. According to Chinese tech bloggers on Weibo, the Ultra variant may be revealed on February 22.
A new Weibo post by Lu Weibing, a partner and president of Xiaomi Group, reveals that he is considering when to begin preparing for the Xiaomi 14 Ultra’s launch. For the Chinese market, it is possible to have a dedicated launch event for the 14 Ultra. Weibo chatter says the Xiaomi 14 Ultra will debut on February 22. Xiaomi Pad 6S Pro tablet is also expected to launch at the same event.
Xiaomi 14 Ultra will arrive in China in three configurations, according to tipster Experience More. Among them are 12GB RAM + 256GB storage, 16GB RAM + 512GB storage, and 16GB RAM + 1TB storage.

It is reported that the 16+1TB variant (when compared to the previous generation) will be priced at 7299 Yuan (Rs.85,300/-), while the titanium version will add 500 Yuan or more. Assuming there is a price increase, the titanium variant will cost about 8,000 Yuan (Rs.92,500/-).
