Xiaomi publishes first camera samples from Mi Mix Alpha's 108MP camera

Peter, 24 September 2019

When you look at the Xiaomi Mi Miax Alpha it’s hard not to gawk at its screen, but the 108MP camera on the “back” is equally unique. The company posted several camera samples and while they are downscaled, there are crops that highlight just how much detail is packed into each photo.

The phone has a 12MP camera with 2x optical zoom, though by the looks of it digital zoom from the monstrous 1/1.33” main sensor will work quite well too. Especially when zooming in at night, that f/1.7 aperture will help the sensor collect as much light as possible. Pixel binning will increase image quality even further, producing 27MP shots.

Of course, the pricing means that the Mi Mix Alpha is just a technology demonstrator, much like current foldable phones.
