Xiaomi Mi Note 10: The 108 Mega Pixel Smartphone

Xiaomi is a company that aims to offer extremely high-value products at wildly competitive prices. From its phones to its suitcases, Xiaomi pushes the boundaries of price-to-performance ratios and with the Xiaomi Mi Note 10, the company is once again pushing the boundaries of what’s possible in a smartphone. With a form factor similar to that of other devices, it offers several surprising specs that you won’t find in other smartphones today.


This is the first smartphone to ship with a 108 MP, which can bin down to 27MP images for more light gathering. It also sports four other cameras on the rear, covering a variety of focal lengths. Xiaomi is angling the Mi Note 10 as a photography-focused device with five cameras on the back and one on the front. The standard 108MP sensor has a sensor size of 1/1.33-inches and an individual pixel size of 0.8μm. These are the same size as the 48MP Sony IMX586 sensor. The Mi Note 10’s sensor, however, is quite a bit larger — 1/1.33-inches versus the 1/2-inch sensor on the IMX586, so you get more resolution at the same quality per-pixel.

The pixel binning technology works the same as it did on the 48MP IMX586. The sensor groups pixels into sets of four and then takes data from adjacent pixels to produce a standard result. This allows the phone to pixel-bin down to 27MP for better low-light performance or shoot at the full 108MP if desired.

Below the main lens, you’ll find a 12MP 2x telephoto lens. This lens does not have optical image stabilization. The lens below it, however, does.

Xiaomi advertises this third lens as a 5x optical telephoto lens, but that is not the case. This is a 3.7x optical telephoto lens on an 8MP sensor. Xiaomi then performs a digital crop to produce a similar reach as a 5x telephoto, but make no mistake, these are not the same thing.

Overall, the camera performance is super great, cosidering the amount of megapixels on this device.

Other Features

The device comes with an in display fingerprint scanner and the Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 730G processor. It even has a 3.5mm headphone jack. On the software side, it’ll run Xiaomi’s MIUI 11 skin on top of last year’s Android 9 Pie. All this is powered by a 5260 mAh battery.
