The new Xiaomi Mi Note has just made its official appearance, and one particularly interesting question for the new handset is just how good its cameras are.
The Mi Note ships with a 13-megapixel main camera with a Sony sensor, a fast, 6-element, f/2.0 lens, optical stabilization and dual-tone LED flash by Philips. The specs alone, however, don't tell us much about the actual quality of the photographs it takes. For this, we need to see real world samples, and luckily, Xiaomi has published a few of them (unfortunately, not yet available in full resolution). The shots are clearly made by a professional photographer, but are nonetheless very useful in seeing that the camera in the Mi Note is definitely no slouch. The night shot in particular shows the capability of the phone to use long shutter speeds to gather more light (that particular scene was shot with 2 seconds on the shutter speed count) with a maximum 32-second exposure.
