This morning, the founder and president of Xiaomi, Lei Jun, announced the main parameters of the cameras on the next models of the Xiaomi 12 series, both equipped with high-end sensors produced by Sony.

Official: Xiaomi 12 Pro will have the new Sony IMX707 sensor, Xiaomi 12 with Sony IMX766

In particular, the Xiaomi 12 will be equipped with a 50 megapixel main camera and the sensor is the acclaimed Sony IMX766, which can be defined as one of the best on the market and which we find on several flagships already launched previously.

As for the Pro version of the Xiaomi 12, on this device we will find the new Sony IMX707 which will make its world debut. It is a 50MP sensor with a 1 / 1,28 inch surface, with pixel binning technology you get to 2,44 um pixels and a 49% increase in light input. The Sony IMX707 is therefore one of the best smartphone sensors ever produced by Sony.

In any case, since Xiaomi has publicly stated that it will challenge Apple's high-end mobile phones in all respects, some Chinese users have published a comparison between the sensors of the Xiaomi 12 and iPhone 13 series.

From the image you can clearly see that the sensor area of ​​the Xiaomi 12 is much larger than that of the iPhone 13. The same goes for the difference between the Xiaomi Mi 12 Pro compared to the iPhone 13 Pro, although the difference in size it is slightly less marked.

Obviously, having a larger sensor area can bring very noticeable benefits in low light conditions and so on. At the same time, the Xiaomi 12 series will also be equipped with an algorithm specialized in night scenes. It can clearly be seen in the real images released by Lei Jun that the color adjustment of Xiaomi 12 is more accurate than competitor flagships; with fewer overexposed parts and more detail in the darker parts.
