This October, Qualcomm is announcing the Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 SoC, and Xiaomi apparently has first dibs on using it. Thus, the Xiaomi 15 and Xiaomi 15 Pro will be the first smartphones to have the upcoming top of the line chipset in them, and they’re expected to be unveiled in October as well.

The Xiaomi 15 Pro is now rumored to come with a new single (but wide) aperture main camera with 50 MP resolution and a “super large” sensor, according to the prolific Chinese tipster Digital Chat station. So the variable aperture from its predecessor is gone.

That will be paired with a 50 MP 3x telephoto periscope zoom camera, and the phone will overall be slightly thinner than its predecessor.

The Xiaomi 15 Pro will also have a “2K” resolution micro-curved screen like the Xiaomi 14 Ultra, an extra large battery, and an ultrasonic in-display fingerprint sensor.

The Xiaomi 14 Pro was never offered officially outside of China, and the Xiaomi 15 Pro may unfortunately have the same fate.

According to previous rumors, the 15 Pro’s ultrawide will have 50 MP resolution too, and the main camera will use the 1″-type OmniVision OV50K sensor. The periscope zoom camera will apparently employ the Sony IMX882.
