Xiaomi announced today the latest device in its Mi Note series – Mi Note 10, the newest device of its premium flagship lineup, boasting the world’s first 108MP penta-camera setup with a premium design and a massive 5260mAh battery.
Welcome to the Penta-Camera Era
Xiaomi’s Mi Note 10 encompasses five different lenses – a 108MP wide-angle lens, 5MP telephoto lens, 12MP telephoto lens, 20MP ultra-wide-angle lens, and a macro lens. This setup enables a seamless zoom experience from 0.6x to 50x without compromising on the image quality or causing images to pixelate.
The 108MP primary camera takes mobile photography to a whole new level and marks itself an industry first. With the Samsung ISOCELL Bright HMX 108MP sensor, Mi Note 10 features the highest resolution available on any smartphone in the market currently– 12032 x 9024. The company says that the 108MP phone camera can produce billboard-level prints up to 4.24 meters high. This device offers a 1/1.33” large image sensor that supports 4-in-1 pixel binning to capture more detail in low-light conditions, while the 4-axis OIS enables unmatched clarity.
Photography enthusiasts who always look to produce the most natural-looking portrait photos will be pleased by Mi Note 10’s 12MP 2x telephoto lens at 50mm focal length, which is one of the most popular focal lengths used by professional portrait photographers. Under low light conditions, the 1.4μm large pixel size and dual PD autofocus allow for sharper and brighter portraits.
The 5MP 5x telephoto lens is also capable of 10x hybrid and 50x digital zoom. Besides, the lens is equipped with OIS and an f/2.0 aperture for better images under non-optimal lighting environments. With its 117 degrees field of view, the 20MP ultra-wide angle lets users capture fantastic landscapes and large group photos without having to cut people out; while the macro lens offers autofocus for closeups images.
Mi Note 10’s rear camera setup supports the all-new Night Mode 2.0 which allows for more excellent light capture and combines multiple shots of the same scene for increased versatility. Concert-goers and night photographers will be thrilled with the RAW multi-frame noise reduction that this device offers.
Mi Note 10 comes with ShootSteady video technology for a smooth and steady video-making experience, along with 960 frames-per-second macro slow-motion video and 4K video with the ultra-wide-angle. Users can leverage Vlog mode to easily create stylish and engaging videos with seven different cinematic effects. Apart from the powerful penta rear camera setup, the Mi Note 10 also features a 32MP selfie camera. It comes with features like AI beautify, AI portrait selfies, AI scene detection, AI face unlock, panorama selfie, and palm shutter feature for amazing selfies.
For those looking for an ultimate photography experience, Xiaomi also offers Mi Note 10 Pro with an 8-piece lens on the primary camera and a large 8GB RAM + 256GB storage. The 8-piece lens delivers images that look clearer and sharper. This variant will be offered at a later date.
