Xiaomi unveiled its CC9 smartphone which boasts of the highest resolution cameras on the market. In comparison, this phone camera has more resolution than the Fujifilm with a 102 Megapixel GFX camera. The phone performs better despite having a sensor that is 15 times larger. Also, the smartphone comes with four rear cameras including 12-megapixel 2x telephoto, 5-megapixel 5x telephoto, 20-megapixel camera with ultra-wide lens and a macro camera of just 2 megapixels. The phone also comes with a gigantic battery.
The smartphone has an impressive zoom range
Samsung worked with Xiaomi to develop the 108-megapixel ISOCELL Bright HMX sensor. This is a pretty big sensor at 1/1.33 inches. It is a bit smaller than the Nokia classic sensor. The zoom levels on the 5mega pixel camera can go as high as 10x to 50x. This zoom range is impressive for a smartphone. This resolution comes with a small 8-pixel pitch. This implies that the camera may not be as good in low light. However, it would work as a 27-megapixel camera since the Tetracell tech from Samsung joins 4 pixels together. If your location is lighted up, you can shoot with 108 million pixels which will produce prints that are up to 4.24 meters high says Xiaomi.
Also, the ultra-wide-angle MP camera has a view of 117 degrees. Then the front camera is about 32 MP. For jitter-free shots, Xiaomi included a 4-axis optical image stabilizer. It also uses the ShootSteady tech of Xiaomi to smoothen out the 4k video. Xiaomi’s night mode is also included in the device like the Pixel 4 and Huawei P30 Pro. The camera combines several shots to reduce noise. It captures RAW photos as well in low light with the multi-frame noise reduction. The torchlight gives the phone a brightness boost.
The 5,260 mAh battery crowns the device. Some other features include AMOLED display, edge-to-edge curved FHD, and Snapdragon 730G mobile platform. It goes on sale on November 6 at 2,799 yuan in China or about $400 for 6GB RAM/128GB and 3,099 yuan or $440 for 8GB RAM.
