On October 28th, Lei Jun announced a new machine, the Xiaomi CC9 Pro, on Weibo and said it would have a camera configuration of up to 100 megapixels. In addition, the new machine is scheduled to be released on November 5.
Great 100-megapixel camera
The camera on the Xiaomi CC9 Pro is in collaboration with Samsung.
As early as August 12, Samsung issued a statement officially launching the 108-megapixel ISOCELL Bright HMX image sensor, which has a resolution comparable to that of a high-end DSLR camera and is the world’s first mobile pixel sensor with more than 100 million pixels.
Specifically, this ISOCELL Bright HMX is the first mobile image sensor with a large 1/1.33-inch size to absorb more light in low-light conditions than a small sensor with a 19mm diagonal angle and 180 million pixels of 0.8m. The output of 4 pixels in 1, i.e. 27 megapixels of photos, is delivered with Tetracell technology to provide better picture quality.
ISOCELL Bright HMX also supports Smart-ISO (Smart ISO), a mechanism that intelligently adjusts camera state based on the lighting environment for optimal photoelectric signal conversion. In bright environments, Smart-ISO switches to low ISO mode to increase pixel saturation and produce more realistic photos, and in darker scenarios, Smart-ISO is tuned to high ISO mode to help reduce noise and make the image clearer.
For video recording, the sensor can support 30 frames at up to 6K (6016×384) resolution.
It is worth mentioning that Xiaomi was also involved in the development of ISOCELL Bright HMX. In Samsung’s official press release, Xiaomi’s co-founder and president, Lin Bin, said that for ISOCELL Bright HMX, Xiaomi and Samsung worked closely from the early conceptual stage slot to production to develop a breakthrough 108-megapixel image sensor. Image resolution, which was previously used only in a few top SLR cameras, can now be incorporated into smartphones.
Samsung said the ISOCELL Bright HMX image sensor, which began mass production in late August, is now in production.
In fact, of course, this ISOCELL Bright HMX image sensor with more than 100 million pixels was announced by Xiaomi, which announced on August 7, 2019, that it would partner with Samsung to develop the world’s first 100-megapixel camera at a future image technology conference in Beijing.
Visible, although it was released by Samsung, but this sensor can not help but Xiaomi’s research and development participation, which in part can explain Xiaomi to obtain its first rights, while Xiaomi’s Pan Jiutang on the Internet commented: the huge expensive camera module.
Why Xiaomi CC9 Pro?
Since it’s expensive, Xiaomi will naturally make the most of the 100-megapixel camera.
So, on the Xiaomi MIX Alpha surround-screen phone released on September 24th, the 100-pixel Ultra HD camera (12032 X 9024) was first unveiled, and in the field, Lei Jun also featured an amazing photo of it for far-flung detail; 20 million ultra-wide-angle cameras and 12-megapixel portrait cameras, respectively.
Of course, Xiaomi MIX Alpha surround screen also has many bright spots, such as screen surround body, new assembly technology, screen occurrence technology, 5G dual-card full-net, operating system adaptation, anti-mistouch … These technologies are designed to highlight the black technology attributes of MIX Alpha as a concept machine, but “the world’s first phone with a 100-megapixel camera” is undoubtedly an unforgettable label for MIX Alpha.
Unfortunately, MIX Alpha is all about glitzy technology, the price of 19999 is also not intended to go, is currently just trying small-scale mass production, is expected to be available at the end of December – in this case, Xiaomi is actually giving 100 million pixels of the first rights to Xiaomi CC9 Pro, and MIX Alpha is the first name but no In fact.
So why Xiaomi CC9 Pro?
First of all, from the point of view of the brand, relative to Xiaomi’s starting digital series and already has three generations of products MIX series, Xiaomi CC series was born only half a year, and only one release (released CC9 series), brand accumulation is less, and the outside world’s brand awareness is relatively low, in this case, Xiaomi CC The series needs a model that will impress consumers – apparently, the first production of 100 million pixels is one of the product highlights.
From the point of view of product line positioning, Xiaomi’s positioning of Xiaomi CC is “focusing on beauty, focusing on trends, and determined to be a young people’s camera flagship”, so whether it is a rear camera or front selfie, Xiaomi CC’s hardware will be the best solution, but also the introduction of Xiaomi x Metu AI aesthetic laboratory aesthetics of the advanced concept. As you can see, Xiaomi CC’s product line features taking pictures, so it’s no surprise that 100 million pixels are used here.
It can be seen that the launch of the Xiaomi CC9 Pro was clearly well thought out.
At present, about this Xiaomi CC9 Pro new machine news, someone on the Internet has been exposed the real machine front photo. From the exposure belief, Xiaomi CC9 Pro will be designed with a drop screen and curved screen, 6GB of memory, with a Qualcomm 730G processor, and a rear 5-camera-4 flash – taken into account, the biggest point of view.
The launch of the Xiaomi CC9 Pro comes at a good time when you look at the relationship between the three product lines under the Xiaomi mobile phone brand. For now, the Xiaomi Digital Series is currently based on 5G (Xiaomi 9 Pro 5G), and the mix series’ new machine MIX Alpha is a concept machine (MIX 3’s successor MIX 4 has not yet aired), so the Xiaomi CC9 Pro can be released with Xiaomi 9 5G in the horse The coming double eleven form a cooperative combat relationship.
