  • Xiaomi 14 series includes AI features such as AI Subtitles, AI Album Search, AI Portraits, and AI Expansion, though the features are in various stages of development and rollout.
  • AI Expansion appears to be now rolling out to Xiaomi 14 Ultra on the EU ROM of Hyper OS.
  • This AI Editor feature lets you use generative AI running on-device to expand an image.

The Xiaomi 14 series phones are some of the best camera flagships you can buy, and a lot of it boils down to the impressive hardware they pack. Xiaomi’s lead in the hardware department helps it compete well against the software smarts that other OEMs are banking on. Both Google and Samsung have touted generative AI features for their flagships, and even OnePlus has jumped on the train with the AI Eraser feature. Xiaomi feels behind the curve with Hyper OS, but the reality is that it is just poorly advertised.

For starters, Xiaomi phones have had object eraser functionality since as far back as MIUI 9 in 2017, though one can argue how much of the feature (both then and now) is driven by AI. There’s also a sky replacement feature that was launched with MIUI 10 in 2019, which actually did a pretty good job of editing the sky in your images, alongside changing the lighting and effects accordingly.
