The Xiaomi 14 Ultra with a Leica Quad camera array, equipped with four 50MP sensors, including a Sony 1-inch sensor, has made its way to the market. The company’s flagship also comes packed with a Snapdragon 8 Gen 3, and a 6.73-inch 2K AMOLED LTPO display.

It didn’t take long for the Xiaomi 14 Ultra to pop up for sale by third-party retailers following the company’s unveiling at a launch event in China. While the smartphone has impressive specs throughout, it was the cameras setup that drew the most attention. Perhaps the most intriguing camera of the Leica Quad array features a Sony LYT-900 1-inch image sensor, with a 20-mm-equivalent focal length lens, which has a fast F1.63 aperture and optical image stabilization.

Along with the Sony 1-inch sensor, there are telephoto, periscope, and ultra-wide cameras rounding out the circular four camera array on the back of the device. Each of the three sensors is a 50MP Sony IMX858, the same as the Xiaomi 13 Ultra. Giving the array more oomph is the company’s new Artificial Intelligence Signal Processor chip used for computational photography, including 4K time-lapse photography. It also allows for shooting video up to 8K/30fps, and 1080p slow-motion at up to 1,920fps.
