- Ultra wide-angle lens: 20MP resolution, f / 2.2 aperture, 128˚ angle, 12mm focal length
So what is the reason why Xiaomi Mi 10 Ultra camera technology was given such a high score?
The system of 4 rear cameras is placed along the back of the device to create an attractive point for the overall device
Xiaomi says this camera is the result of years of research and development by engineers at many Xiaomi R&D centers around the world: Beijing, Shanghai, Shenzhen, Nanjing, Tokyo, Santiago, Bangalore, Paris and Tampere. The flagship Xiaomi boasts a 4-camera cluster that has been significantly upgraded compared to the previous generation.
48MP sensors built into the camera capture sharp images in fine details
In order to get the impressive specs on this camera system, Xiaomi has revealed the main camera Mi 10 Ultra uses a 48MP sensor with a size of 1 / 1.32 inches and can handle HDR on chip. Pixels are basically grouped into three categories: short, medium, and long exposure. They are then merged into an HDR signal as the sensor reads the image line by line.
The first smartphone that can shoot HDR10 is the Mi 10 Ultra
The Mi 10 Ultra is the first phone from Xiaomi that can record HDR10 videos thanks to the processing on this sensor. From this device, you can easily produce 8K video at 30 fps or 4K video at 60 fps. The ability to focus and focus on the subject is also quite good. The phone also features a rare 8P lens design – one with eight elements, helping to reduce aberrations as much as possible. Each element added to the lens makes the production exponentially more complicated.
D-cut lenses make optical image stabilization difficult but this is not a big problem for Xiaomi engineers
Mi 10 Ultra uses a 48MP Sony IMX586 sensor with a size of 1 / 2.32 inches. The size of the sensor would make the module too thick to fit in a phone’s frame. In this regard, Xiaomi had to use a D-cut lens to thin it.
The wide shooting angle does not distort the image thanks to the 7P lens
Furthermore, the ultra wide-angle lens of the Mi 10 Ultra offers a shooting angle of up to 128 degrees. It reuses the 7P lens to minimize distortion, especially at the edges of the image. In-lens distortion reduction improves the resolution instead of having to correct the image through other editing software.
To be able to launch a smartphone with the world’s leading camera technology like Mi Ultra 10, Xiaomi has definitely spent a lot of time and effort. But they are getting “sweet fruit” thanks to breakthrough studies on the imaging system of this device. The camera technology of Xiaomi Mi 10 Ultra will contribute to falter any giants like Apple, Huawei, Samsung, … in the race of market share in the second half of 2020.
