At the camera level we find one double camera on the back, but at the level of design the usual "traffic light" is abandoned and we find it again style seen in Mi 5X / Mi A1, therefore a module placed horizontally and composed by a sensor from 12 + 5 megapixel with pixel surface from 1,25uM able to capture more light. On the front instead we find one selfie camera by 5 megapixel with AI support in portrait mode and beauty mode on both rooms.

We also find the support Dual SIM Dual Standby but also Dual 4G via cat LTE modem 7 but also the possibility of unlock with the face, the voice assistant Xiao AI, Bluetooth 5.0 and the new MIUI 10 (as soon as the official release takes place) on an Android 8.1 Oreo basis.

The MediaTek Helio P22 is a very good processor. At the proposed price and with Android Oreo 8.1 installed by default is certainly a bargain (there is little with these features at these prices). True that for the most knowledgeable in the industry is not very desirable, especially because of the processor, but the "common" people is not able to discern between a Snapdragon and a MediaTek. The 90% will look at price, display and camera. Here, at most a limit is the video equipment that is a little stuff ...

Nerd, Geek, Netizen, terms that do not belong to me. Simply myself, technology lover and provocative as Xiaomi does with his products. High quality at fair prices, a real provocation for the other most famous brands.
