Xiaomi is grinding away again — putting one more incredibly enormous camera on a flagship phone. This time, it’s the Xiaomi 12 Pro with a 50-megapixel main sensor and f/1.9 standard wide lens. It’s not the extremely greatest sensor Xiaomi has used in a phone, yet the combination of a wide aperture lens and sizable imaging chip makes it… all things considered, simply take a gander at the thing.
On the technical side, it’s a Sony IMX707 chip, which Xiaomi says it’s the first to use in a cell phone. Gizmochina calls attention to that the 707 gives off an impression of being an exceptionally light refresh of the IMX700, which makes that guarantee somewhat less invigorating. In any case, it’s a huge 1/1.28-inch type sensor. Sony joins its 1.22μm pixels, which are now genuinely huge for a mobile camera sensor, to make significantly bigger 2.44μm “4-in-1” pixels for better low-light photos.
The 12 Pro incorporates two additional 50-megapixel rear camera sensors: a ultrawide and a telephoto. The Xiaomi 12 features a somewhat more modest 1/1.56-inch type sensor, a 13-megapixel ultrawide, and a 5-megapixel “telemacro.” notwithstanding noteworthy hardware, the 12 and 12 Pro incorporate camera software enhancements like reduced shutter lag, burst shooting upgrades, and subject tracking for human and animal faces.
On the non-camera side, the 12 Pro and its 12 sibling have every one of the trimmings of a modern flagship with Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipsets and 120Hz OLED panels. The Xiaomi 12 offers a 6.28-inch screen and a 4,500mAh battery; the 12 Pro incorporates a 6.73-inch screen with 1,500 nit peak brightness and a 4,600mAh battery with 120W fast charging.
Assuming that you might want to become the proud owner of an incredibly enormous cell phone camera, both go on sale in China on December 31st.
