Here are the first official camera samples from the Xiaomi Redmi Note 3

Xiaomi's Redmi Note 3 is official - it comes with a metal body, a 2.0GHz Helio X10 chipset, either 2 or 3GB of RAM depending on the storage version you pick, a larger-than-life 4,000mAh battery at the back, and last but not least, a 13MP camera with phase detection autofocus at the rear. 

Sadly, Xiaomi did not reveal any additional details about the camera in particular, but we suppose that it could be the same one that graced the Redmi Note 2. This means that we are most likely dealing with a Samsung-made rear snapper employing an f/2.2 lens and capable of shooting 120fps slow-mo videos. 

Have in mind that we're just speculating here, but judging from the information Xiaomi revealed during the announcement of the Redmi Note 3, we might as well be correct.

Although it provided little to no official information about the camera of the device, Xiaomi shared a couple of official cherrypicked camera sample made with its new device that allegedly show what its snapper is capable of. Check them out right below.

i doubt if the camera samples are from "Redmi Note 3"... in all the photos in the right bottom corner, it clearly mentions "Redmi Note 2".

that's a nice catch. although these official samples never match with the real life samples. either it's Chinese or Korean or something else.

Real samples are more important which will be available in reviews. The 12MP Nexus' camera is great.
