Electronics giant Xiaomi has announced the global availability of two Leica-branded phones at MWC 2024, the Xiaomi 14 and Xiaomi 14 Ultra, as well as a slew of other gadgets, including a tablet and smartwatch. The Xiaomi 14 Ultra is the first top-end flagship to make it to UK stores for a couple of years, with last year's Xiaomi 13 Ultra only launching in select markets. 

Taking on the Galaxy S24 Ultra, Xiaomi's 14 Ultra will be one of the only phones set for Europe and the UK with an Apple and Samsung-beating 1-inch camera sensor, and with its Leica partnership and one awesome-looking camera accessory, photography fans should take note.
