Xiaomi will be celebrating with the news that its latest smartphone offering has scored 121 on DxOMark’s camera benchmarking test – putting it dead level with Huawei’s Mate 30 Pro.
Expected to launch in Europe as the Mi Note 10 on November 6th, the Mi CC9 Pro (in its Premium edition guise) clearly impressed DxOMark, and a video below demonstrates exactly why.
The phone has five cameras on the back, along with four individual LED flashes. The primary camera is a Samsung ISOCELL Bright HMX sensor, packing in 108-megapixels.
Like other high-megapixel image sensors, the intention isn’t solely to offer huge photos (although this is often an option, usable when the lighting conditions are right) but to use pixel-binning to produce a cleaner image of a lower resolution.
Phones using Sony’s excellent 48-megapixel image sensor can get great 12-megapixel photos, while the 108-megapixel camera allows a 27-megapixel image to be saved.
In addition to the primary camera, you get a telephoto, wide-angle, macro and portrait camera. The macro can shoot at just 15mm, while the phone offers up to 50x digital zoom from the 5x optical zoom.
The Mi CC9 Pro has a 5,260mAh battery and supports 30-watt fast charging. The phone is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 730G octo-core CPU, which does mean it will lack 5G connectivity.
Up front the phone has a 6.47-inch AMOLED display with full HD+ resolution and a 19.5:9 ratio. A small notch houses a 32-megapixel selfie camera.
Now all eyes will be on what comes to Europe, but we don’t have long to wait as there’s an event in Madrid tomorrow!
