Xiaomi Mi 8 gets Night Mode and 960fps slow mo with MIUI 10.1.2.0

Ivan, 28 December 2018

Xiaomi is adding Super Night Scene and 960fps super slow motion video recording to the Xiaomi Mi 8 and Mi 8 Explorer through the global MIUI 10.1.2.0 update. The firmware weighs 288MB and is not to be mistaken with the Chinese update that was seeded in early December, following a beta test in November.

Both features premiered with the Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 at the end of October. Super Night Scene captures 8 photos at different exposures and merges them into a brighter shot. We got to play with it during our hands-on with the Xiaomi Mi Mix 3.

Until the addition of 960fps super slow-mo, the Xiaomi Mi 8 was able to capture up to 240fps slow-mo.

Xiaomi says that the Xiaomi Mi 8 Pro is next in line to receive the firmware and the Super Night Scene and 960fps super slow-mo. This is a bit odd, considering the Mi 8 Pro is basically a revamped Mi 8 Explorer for the Chinese market, where all three devices have the firmware since early December.
