Within just a month after it was first shown to the world, Xiaomi has then decided to unleash the Mi Note 10 in Malaysia. The new phone has also been touted as the world’s first 108 megapixels penta camera.
But some might be wondering: what does penta means? According to the Oxford Dictionary, penta which originated from the Greek language means five and in the case of Mi Note 10, the phone does have five cameras.
Here is the specification and designated role of each cameras on the Mi Note 10:
Now, why do we need so many cameras on a phone? The answer is very simple: flexibility at any given time.
For example, you want to shoot a very beautiful scenery and want to preserve as much as of its natural detail? The 1080MP option which is made possible by the Samsung ISOCELL Bright HMX sensor that was co-developed with Xiaomi, sounds like a good option for such scenario since it allows you to shoot at a very high resolution.
Here are some sample images:
Specifically, the Mi Note 10 108MP main camera is able to capture photos at a resolution of up to 12032 x 9042. With resolution that massive, Xiaomi claimed that you can actually print a poster with a height of up to 4.2 meter which is almost one story high!
Understandably, you might not want to use 108MP at all times. Maybe you want to snap a statue that has been cordoned off from a distance away which is sounds like a perfect job for Mi Note 10’s zoom camera that provides several zoom options including up to 5x optical zoom, 10x hybrid zoom, and 50x digital zoom.
(Top to bottom): 5x zoom, ultra wide-angle mode, (0.6x) and macro mode.
Maybe you want to add a sense of epic into a scenery which is something that Mi Note 10’s ultra wide-angle camera could assist. Maybe you also need a super close-up photo of the flower that you love which might be loved by the Mi Note 10’s dedicated macro camera.
Aside from its 108MP penta camera which has helped Mi Note 10 elevate into the highest-ranking camera phone on DxOMark list, they are many other things that Xiaomi has included into the phone that made it such a formidable device.
For example, it comes with a 32MP selfie camera alongside a massive 5260mAh battery that could deliver up to two days of operation time. Not only that, the phone can be fully charged in just 65 minutes with the 30W flash charger that comes as a standard with Mi Note 10.
For those who love entertainment and games, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 730G chip inside the phone would provide all the firepower that they need. At the same time, they can enjoy their contents through the beautifully curved 6.47-inch Full HD+ AMOLED display that supports HDR 10 standard and also comes with an in-screen fingerprint sensor.
Not to forget, there is also support for Hi-Res Audio and yes, Mi Note 10 also comes standard with a 3.5mm audio jack. An IR blaster and NFC support have also been included into the Mi Note 10 to provide added convenience.
All in all, the Mi Note 10 is packed with plenty of features that make it a very versatile device including a highly flexible imaging capability, long lasting battery life, beautiful display, and many more.
Whether you are into mobile photography, entertainment, productivity, or simply want a high-end experience without breaking the bank, the Mi Note 10 could be the one for you.
