A couple of days back, we saw Xiaomi’s President Lin Bin share some photos captured by the Xiaomi Mi 5 camera. Despite being compressed by the social networking website, Weibo, the images showed that the Mi 5 could have a pretty powerful rear camera sensor with fast focus.

Now, Xiaomi’s VP Hugo Barra has just revealed some new images which reveal the details captured by Xiaomi Mi 5 camera. This time around, Barra shared the photos on Facebook directly. Once again, the photos turned out to be impressive with rich color and a lot of details. What’s more, there’s even a zoomed picture of the original image which shows the level of details captured by Mi 5’s camera.

However, Hugo is aware that the photos are compressed on Facebook. Hence, he will most likely upload the original pictures directly on the MIUI Forums. So, we better watch out for those full resolution shots.

Like mentioned above, this is the second set of camera samples that we have seen from the Xiaomi Mi 5 flagship. Lin Bin’s samples showed that the phone will come with super fast focus which could capture a flying bird without any visible blur. This is possible probably because of the Laser Autofocus that the Mi 5 is rumored to come with. As for the sensor, it is said that the phone will have a 16MP camera at the back. Unfortunately, the camera specs are yet to be confirmed.
