Xiaomi uses another huge camera on a flagship phone. 12 Pro with a 50-megapixel main sensor and f/1.9 standard wide lens. Xiaomi has not used a big sensor but it has been used in a phone, but the combination of a wide aperture lens and sizable imaging chip makes it amazing.
On the technical side, it’s a Sony IMX707 chip, which Xiaomi says it’s the first to use in a mobile device. Gizmochina points out that the 707 appears to be a very light refresh of the IMX700, which makes that claim a little less exciting. It is a large 1/1.28-inch type sensor. Sony combines its 1.22μm pixels, which are already fairly large for a mobile camera sensor, to create even larger 2.44μm “4-in-1” pixels for better low-light photos.
On the non-camera side, the 12 Pro and its 12 have all the trimmings of a modern flagship with Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipsets and 120Hz OLED panels. The Xiaomi 12 offers a 6.28-inch screen and a 4,500mAh battery; the 12 Pro includes a 6.73-inch screen with 1,500 nit peak brightness and a 4,600mAh battery with 120W fast charging.
