After announcing its latest flagship Xiaomi Mi 8 on May 31, the Chinese hi-tech giant has started promoting the phone by confirming that it offers a better camera performance than every other Xiaomi phone and shoots even better photos than the Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S. Even DxOMark defines the Mi 8 one of the best camera phones, not only better than the Mi Mix 2S but even better than Apple’s iPhone X.
But the Mi 8 has the same camera module as the Mi Mix 2S, and this means that through the software, it is able to reach exactly the same performance. Lei Jun has just confirmed that Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S will soon receive an update which will make its camera as good as the one of the new Xiaomi Mi 8. The camera firmware of the Mi 8 will be rolled out on the Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S so that it will be able to shoot the same outstanding photos of its successor.
Xiaomi Mi 8 and Mi Mix 2S feature a dual rear camera with a 12 MP resolution. The primary sensor is a wide-angle Sony IMX363 with a 12 MP resolution, a f/1.8 aperture and a pixel size of 1.4 microns. The secondary sensor is an S5K3M3 with the same resolution but a f/2.4 aperture.
