In anticipation of its upcoming 14 series, Xiaomi has been diligently navigating the legal requirements, and the Pro model within the lineup has just received certification from 3C (Chinese Compulsory Certification). The smartphone, bearing the model number 23116PN5BC, has been confirmed to support blazing-fast 120W wired charging, consistent with its two predecessors.
The 3C certification signifies that the device has successfully passed the mandatory testing phase, marking a significant step towards its imminent release.
While it was already revealed that the standard Xiaomi 14 will boast 90W charging, a notable upgrade from the 13 series, it appears that Xiaomi has opted to maintain the impressive 120W charging capability for the Pro variant.
Enthusiasts can expect the Xiaomi 14 series to make its debut in November, just days after Qualcomm’s scheduled announcement of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 chipset, slated for October 24. This strategic timing aligns with China’s prominent shopping holiday on November 11, known as Singles’ Day. Xiaomi aims to have its flagship devices ready for this event, capitalizing on the increased consumer spending during this period.
While the local launch is expected to align with Singles’ Day, an international release may take some additional time. Historical trends indicate that the previous series required over two months to transition from a local launch to a global one, suggesting a similar timeline for the upcoming Xiaomi 14 lineup.
