Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 launched at the end of 2018 and is claimed to be set to follow it up with the Mi Mix 4 within the coming months. The Mi Mix 4, several months ago, was touted to feature a 64 MP camera and Xiaomi’s Product Director, Wang Teng, could have confirmed it a few days ago.
The manager claimed that the Mi Mix 4 would feature a more excellent sensor than the only 64 MP sensor on the market proper now, Samsung’s ISOCELL Bright GW1. The resolution doesn’t exactly have a lot to do with camera quality, but with the latest rumors about the Mix 4 in mind, we’re willing to bet it contains a 64 MP sensor. Not Samsung’s, though, which may imply that the flagship could utilize Sony’s yet unreleased competing for 64 MP sensor.
The past three years have seen massive enhancements in smartphone images, and each year brings a brand new improvement to the industry. Last year was a race to see which firm might cram in the most camera sensors into a phone, starting with the tri-cam Huawei P20 Pro and culminating within the Penta-cam Nokia 9 PureView. This year, though, we’re again to the megapixel war.
Sony’s 48 MP IMX586 has been the flagship camera sensor of alternative because it was launched on the finish of 2018, discovering use on flagships like the Mi 9, OnePlus 7 Pro, and Honor View 20. One could almost be fooled into believing more pixels meant better image quality; however, the reality is usually disappointing. For example, the 48 MP IMX586 is beaten soundly by Sony’s 40 MP IMX600, mostly due to the latter just being a bigger sensor all-round.
The jury is still out on whether the pixel-binning technology higher-res sensors like the IMX586 and Samsung GM1 uses truly produces better photographs than those taken by lower-res sensors just like the 12 MP Sony IMX363. Bigger is usually construed as better, and a 48 MP camera sounds more spectacular on paper than a 12 MP one, and that may very well be the reason for this new trend.
