The Mi MIX 3 has a camera mode called Night Scene which allows users to take HDR photos at night that appear super bright even if lighting is poor. It is their own version of Huawei’s Night Mode. Xiaomi did confirm that the feature will be made available to its older flagships and it appears the Mi 8 Pro is first in line to get it.
According to AnTuTu, they found the feature has been added to the phone’s internal firmware. The discovery was shared on their official Weibo account and they believe it will arrive with the next beta update and then later be released along with a stable update.
The Night Scene mode takes several photos at different exposures and combines them into a single image that is bright and with as less noise as possible. The camera is able to do it by combining 8 different technologies including HDR, AIS, 4-axis OIS, and multi-frame noise reduction.
The Mi 8 Pro has a 6.21-inch S-AMOLED screen, the same Snapdragon 845 processor as the Mi MIX 3 and MIX 2S, up to 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. It also has the same dual 12MP cameras on its rear as the Mi MIX 3. There is a 20MP selfie camera sitting in its notch along with an infrared face recognition system. There is also a fingerprint scanner under the display. The Mi 8 Pro packs a 3,000mAh battery with support for Quick Charge 4.0+.
