Xiaomi to bring 108MP camera to Redmi Note 11 series

Yordan, 26 October 2021

Xiaomi is bringing the Redmi Note 11 series in China on Thursday, and today we got to learn another key feature about the new lineup. At least one of the phones will have a 108 MP camera with 2.1 μm large pixels, just like the Redmi Note 10 Pro/Pro Max.

The size of a single pixel is just marketing talk - in reality, the pixels are 0.7 μm, but thanks to the 9-to-1 pixel binning technology, they will be grouped into a single 2.1 μm pixel to receive more light and provide a better image in certain scenarios.

The default resolution of the 108 MP photos will be 4:3 since the resolution will be 12,000 x 9,000. Xiaomi is likely going to reintroduce the very same Samsung HM2 sensor that was in the previous generations of Redmi Note phones since the current Samsung HM3 platform is slightly different from the specs the brand is promising.
