Xiaomi has unveiled its latest flagship Xiaomi 14 Pro smartphone featuring an unprecedented 1024-level adjustable aperture camera system, provides fine-tuned control over depth of field and exposure.
While most smartphone cameras offer a fixed aperture or few adjustment settings, Xiaomi’s breakthrough design enables seamless f/1.42 to f/4.0 aperture tuning.
At f/1.42, the wide aperture creates beautiful background blur and bokeh effects. At f/4.0, details become crystal clear and starburst effects shine. A dedicated street photography mode provides 4 easy aperture presets for on-the-fly adjustment.
50MP rear camera (Light Hunter 900) sensor delivers optical image stabilization (OIS) to complement the variable aperture. A 50MP Samsung ultra-wide camera and 3.2x telephoto lens with large 1/2.76-inch sensors complete the modular system.
Beyond the camera advances, the Xiaomi 14 Pro sports a brilliant 6.73-inch 2K OLED display with 120Hz dynamic refresh rate and 3000 nit peak brightness. Top-tier power comes from Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 chipset.
A hefty 4880mAh battery enables all-day use, aided by rapid 120W wired and 50W wireless charging. 5G connectivity, WiFi 7 support, stereo speakers and IP68 water resistance round out the spec sheet.
Xiaomi has set a new standard for smartphone camera innovation with 1024 levels of aperture tuning. Rival brands will struggle to match this unprecedented imaging control and flexibility.
The Xiaomi 14 Pro looks primed to capture stunning, professional-grade photography that isn’t possible on other leading mobile devices. For creators and photo enthusiasts, this breakthrough variable aperture unlocks a new world of creative possibilities.
