Xiaomi teaser comes to confirm 108MP camera on the Xiaomi Mi Mix Alpha
Xiaomi will launch two new handsets tomorrow, on September 24. One of them is the Xiaomi Mi 9 Pro 5G, and the other one is the Xiaomi Mi Mix Alpha. While the Mi 9 Pro 5G is really appealing, it’s highly likely that the Mi Mix Alpha will be the one to steal the spotlight. As we already reported, the Mi Mix Alpha will either have a beautiful waterfall screen that embraces the body of the smartphone, or it will downright be the company’s first foldable phone. The majority of opinions lean toward the waterfall screen but until the launch event we can’t really rule out anything.
A new teaser coming from Xiaomi on their Weibo account reveals the fact that on September 24 a handset sporting the brand new 108MP camera will launch. Given the fact that two new devices are coming our way, it could be any one of them. However, leaks regarding the camera setup of the Mi 9 Pro 5G already surfaced and they pointed out that the 5G device will have a triple rear camera setup, consisting of a 48MP main camera, a telephoto camera, and an ultra-wide sensor. This means that the Xiaomi Mi Mix Alpha will be the one to sport the 108MP sensor for the first time.
This is not a surprise as previous rumors hinted at the new Mi Mix series device coming with the powerful camera sensor on board. Even so, it’s always nice to have confirmation from the manufacturing company, as vague as it may be. The Weibo post shows a sample picture captured with the new Samsung camera. The details are amazing, however, it is notable that the picture was taken n a controlled environment. The results might not be just as amazing in real-life conditions. Unfortunately, the 48MP and 64MP sensors have disappointed a little in real-life conditions so we shouldn’t get too excited just yet about the 108MP sensor either.
The launch event of the Xiaomi Mi Mix Alpha is only hours away. We will have answers to all our questions then. Until we get to see it, we can hope for the best and dream of the perfect smartphone.
