Amit Gujar, 26 Oct 2019Did anyone saw the icon of google camera 😮 ?It's powered by Android. If that's what you're asking..

    Sio whether Xiaomi add decent camera or not or 108 Mpix beats anything i dont care.
    Still having a 400 eur flagship with best possible specs and a 150 eur camera makes a lot betetr 2 combo than single phone by Ifruit or Samsung where price cross 1200 euros like nothing.

        Xiaomi Alpha have 108 mpix.
        I dont think they will add a Hubble telescope to this device as a camera.
        If they cant manage then it wont be a world top class camera.

              Cool, I shop for the best camera, not for a phone anymore..

              Gave up my pre-order for Pixel 4 after finding out its lackluster 4K video performance especially in low light, gonna go back to iPhone again this time around I believe, after 4 years in Android camp...

Apple is as crooked as any other, and more so in some cases, but for the consumer they are a knight in shining armor. Though many businesses alike have that image about them to the buyer. All I am saying is that the proof is in the pudding...Panos stated the camera will be world class but to me that is a subjective comment, so we will need to wait and see.

They talked big about Windows Phones, and it was a FAIL. Now, they're trying hard to create hype. Good luck. Apple talks much, too, but they deliver something special, no wonder why Apple, and not MS, has the liquid cash to boast about; Apple, at least, has a great business model indeed.

                              AnonD-706668, 26 Oct 2019How ? Does they put APS-C sensor or 35mm full frame sensor ... moreIn a way you could do this, like divide that kind of sensor to multiple ones each covering part of fov. What they will do may be something more simple though.
                              Patented thing may be the best way. Not sure it will be 108mp sensor however.

                                World class means something you can imagine to compete with mate40pro which comes after P40pro. Considering mate30pro performance, they sure are courageous.
