Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra to pioneer the 50MP Samsung GN2 sensor

Yordan, 23 February 2021

Xiaomi is expected to launch the Mi 11 Ultra smartphone with a triple camera setup and a small secondary display on the back. According to leakster Ice Universe, the new smartphone will be the first to implement the 50MP Samsung ISOCELL GN2 sensor, announced earlier today.

The Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra was rumored to have a 50MP main, 48MP ultrawide and 48MP telephoto camera units, lending further credibility to the new tip. Xiaomi has been partnering with the Korean company in the last 2+ years, pioneering sensors before they arrive at other manufacturers.

Back in January 2019, the Redmi Note 7 became the first phone with a 48MP camera, thanks to the Samsung GM1 sensor. Then the Redmi Note 8 Pro was first in the world with the 64MP GW1 sensor, followed by the Xiaomi Mi CC9 Pro (also known as Mi Note 10) as the first with a 108MP ISOCELL HMX sensor.
