A few days ago Xiaomi officially revealed their upcoming flagship smartphone, the Mi 9. Mi 9 is scheduled to be launched on Feb 20, just four days from now, in China. However, the details of the Mi 9 was not revealed by the company at the time of revealing.
Now Xiaomi has left the fans surprised by giving out detailed information about the Triple camera setup on board the Mi 9. They also released camera samples to show the capabilities of the camera.
Along with the details about the camera, Xiaomi also gave some hints about the Mi 9 display along with the upcoming space grey variant of the device. The camera samples were released through the official Twitter handle of Xiaomi earlier today. The camera samples included the pictures taken using individual lenses in the triple camera setup. The main sensor is a 48MP, f/1.75, 6P lens unit employing the 4-in-1 Super Pixel technology. The Super Pixel technology, also known as pixel binning, extends the 12MP to an effective resolution of 48MP.
The secondary camera is a 16MP ultra wide sensor capable of capturing 117 degree FOV (Field of View) with f/2.2 aperture and a 6P lens configuration. It is capable of taking 4cm macro shots according to the camera samples. It means that the Mi 9 will be able to focus on objects from just 4cm away without losing the details. The 16MP secondary lens also supports Auto-Focus. Apparently, it uses an anti-distortion algorithm for loseless photography as revealed by Xiaomi co-founder in a post on Weibo. Both the 48MP primary and 16MP secondary sensors on board the Mi 9 employs a ‘closed loop motor’.
The third one is a telephoto lens capable of 2x optical zoom with 1 micron pixel size, f/2.2 aperture with autofocus and a 6P lens configuration as seen in the other two sensors. There is a 20MP front shooter with AI beautification features for the selfie buffs out there.
Getting scratches on the camera lens has always been a pain for every smartphone user. But, in the Mi 9, Xiaomi has got it all covered by deploying a layer of sapphire glass which is strong enough to resist the scratches from everyday use.
Other camera features includes the use of laser auto focus, utilizing a combination of PDAF and CDAF. Speaking of other attractions, the Mi 9’s chin is just 3.4mm thin and is about 40% slimmer than the Mi 8 according to reports. I will be sporting a Snapdragon 855 SoC and an in-display fingerprint scanner. The Xiaomi co-founder also shared an image of the Mi 9’s space grey colour variant flaunting a glossy finish, making it the third color variant apart from the pink and blue gradient variant which were revealed already.
