The 6.7-inch Wide Quad High Definition+ (WQHD+) display, with a pixel density of 522ppi, stands out with its industry-leading luminous efficiency of 3000 nits and support for Dolby Vision HDR format. Like the Xiaomi 14, the Pro version also comes with All Around Liquid Display and a 1-120Hz refresh rate.

🟣 All Around Liquid Display

The All Around Liquid Display introduces an innovation in display design, featuring a consistent curvature that gracefully wraps around all four sides and corners of the screen. Unlike traditional curved displays that often come with compromises, Xiaomi's approach aims to offer the best of both worlds — the aesthetic of curved edges and the practicality of a flat screen.

Xiaomi has addressed common issues associated with curved displays, such as distortion, color inaccuracies, accidental touches, and reliability concerns. The All Around Liquid Display provides a seamless and distortion-free visual experience, ensuring every detail is vibrant and true to life.

🟪 Xiaomi 14 Series Design & Durability

The Xiaomi 14 is a perfect blend of aesthetic elegance and robust durability. The device features Xiaomi Ceramic Glass, a remarkable material with a unique powder formula heating process at over 800℃. That heating process results in the formation of interlocking microcrystals within the glass, resulting in improved durability. As a result, the Xiaomi Ceramic Glass has a ten times higher drop resistance and 1.25 times higher scratch resistance than previous models while maintaining exceptional transparency.

The image shows two variants of the Xiaomi 14 smartphones. From left to right are the Black and Jade Green variants. The phones are positioned vertically, with the rear of the phone pointing towards the screen, showing the Leica cameras.

The ultra-thin bezel design of the Xiaomi 14 is an industry-leading innovation, showcasing an ultra-slim chin that contributes to an immersive visual experience. This design is achieved by implementing FIAA technology, ensuring an exceptionally slim chin with an edge-to-edge display. The device's compact size, coupled with the ultra-thin bezel, not only enhances its visual appeal but also improves the overall user experience.

There are four distinct color options for the 14 Series: Jade Green, Black, White, and Snow Mountain Pink. The Snow Mountain Pink variant, in particular, introduces second-generation nano-tech skin, a feature initially seen in Xiaomi 13 Ultra. This advanced skin not only enhances durability but also resists discoloration, ensuring the device maintains its aesthetic charm over time.
