Leakster: the Xiaomi 12 will have a triple 50MP camera with a 5x periscope

30 August 2021
The Mi 11 Ultra is already close to that with a 50+48+48 MP camera and a 5x periscope. The next ultra will probably have a 200 MP camera, though.

Sort by:

  • Ehhh

"but that focal length is impractical" isn't true... focal length ≠ high mpx zoom. You guys should read about background compression. You can also make an experiment with making a picture of wide lens high mpx photo with one of same telephoto, crop them the same frame and compare the objects that are closer and distant how they appear.

Also would be awesome if you guys advocate for bigger individual sensor pixels rather than more mpx, yes pixel binning is somewhat alright and HDR with pictures, but this doesn't help with videos at all, especially at low light.

Cheers from Bulgaria (:

This setup is actually quite beasty, although Xiaomi could learn so so so much more from their processing.

Xiaomi could really just improve on their foliage, and less on oversaturation, aiming for more natural looks is so much better than having an "Instagrammable" photo.

I also wish they'd aim for a more DSLR style bokeh in their portrait mode.
And being able to zoom at any level with portrait mode is a big plus.

So, we should expect an 800 euros phone to have 100x zoom and possibly the best ultra wide out there. Nice

The kernel is stored in a special type of compressed file that's extracted directly into RAM during the device power-on sequence. This reserved memory holds the kernel, drivers and kernel modules that control the hardware and room to cache data in and out of the kernel.
A RAMdisk for virtual files: There are some folders and files in the system tree that aren't "real." They are pseudofiles written at boot and hold things like battery levels and CPU speed data. With Android, the whole /proc directory is one of these pseudofile systems. RAM is reserved so they have a place to live.
Network radios: Data about your IMEI and radio settings are stored in NVRAM (Non-Volatile memory that's not erased when you power off your phone), but get transferred to RAM along with the software needed to support the modem when you first turn on your phone. Space is reserved to keep this all in memory.
The GPU: The graphics adapter in your phone needs memory to operate. That's called VRAM, and our phones use integrated GPUs that have no stand-alone VRAM. System RAM is reserved for this.
Once that's done and your phone is up and running, what's left is the available RAM your phone needs to operate and run apps. A portion of this is also reserved for things that need to happen quickly (low-level operating system functions and housekeeping) but it's reserved a different way. These are software-based settings the people who wrote the OS and built the kernel for your phone set, and it keeps a set minimum amount of RAM free so these low-level functions can be done as needed without having to wait for an app to free any memory.

All this is why the available RAM listing in settings isn't the same as the total amount of RAM installed inside your phone. The full amount really is inside, but a portion of it (usually about 1GB or so) is reserved. Your apps get to fight over the rest.

Gpu on E2100 and S888+ is clocked at 900mhz, I've rooted s21ultra Exynos on custom kernel clocked at 1250mhz, Custom rom with extreme cpu governor clocked at 3.5ghz, phone heats up too 45 degrees, but no throttling.

You don't no nothing, you're a newbie.

Go too XDA developers.
And snapdragon are rubbbishhhhh at rooting, developers love exynos

Nick Tegrataker, 01 Sep 2021This would be such great news if it turned out to be true..... moreThat's scrap, need treble imx888, special edition Japan only , custom made version.

captain fokou, 31 Aug 2021You mean a 12 lite? Unfortunately, Xiaomi "Lite" models are not the small ones. But "SE" (Special Edition) are, like Mi 9 SE.

There are 48/64mp 4x zoom phones, should be improvement from 8/13mp 5x. And your foldable with 2/3x tele just got ridiculed once more(besides main camera).
Looks like classic design with 200mp will be hot next term, lol, wonder what sony will come with...

if the 50MP sensor were IMX700 then it would be a real 50MP sensor, otherwise it's just a 12.5MP sensor!

This would be such great news if it turned out to be true.. GN2 + dual IMX766, hopefully?

Nope. You have no idea what you are talking about. Small sensor camera modules are so cheap, unless they use similar size sensor of main cameras. Like 5 USD or cheaper cheap!

That's why cheap phones can put multiple cameras on the back.

In those case larger sensor auxillary cameras, results are really good.
