Two images circulating on the web suggest that the Xiaomi 13 would actually be called Xiaomi 14. A clue to consider with many tweezers, but it is not impossible.
The number 13 has a bad reputation. According to tenacious superstitions in several countries, it is synonymous with misfortune and bad luck. But what does this have to do with smartphones? As it turns out, Xiaomi’s next high-end model is supposed to be called Xiaomi 13. However, according to new information that will be taken with a grain of salt, this phone might be in store for a little surprise and finally be called Xiaomi 14.
On the trail of the Xiaomi 14
As indicated in my smart price, two images posted on Weibo cast doubt. The first is a photo of a box full of smartphone boxes. In one of them we can read “Xiaomi 14”. Enough to suggest that this model is already in an advanced enough stage of production to have copies already packaged. It should be noted in passing that there is also a logo similar to that of Leica, a recent photographic partner in Xiaomi smartphones.
The second image is a screenshot of the “About device” section. We see there, too, the name “Xiaomi 14” in the upper left. In the same screenshot, we also see the model number 2211133C, which corresponds to the one seen some time ago in a certification for the CCC mark, the Chinese equivalent of the CE mark. Therefore, we could deduce that the Xiaomi 14 will soon be ready for sale.
Few certainties around the Xiaomi 13 or Xiaomi 14
It is important to underline the fact that these leaks on the Xiaomi 14 deserve to be considered with a lot of hindsight. The hint of a non-existent Xiaomi 13 due to superstition is interesting, because plausible: we remember OnePlus and Oppo avoiding the number 4, because it is poorly perceived in China. However, nothing is confirmed, far from it.
At the moment, the only thing we can say for sure is that Xiaomi’s next flagship will feature the new Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 and it already promises to be great at cloud gaming.
