See the official camera samples from the Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 and Mi Note 3

Xiaomi's new Mi Mix 2 and Mi Note 3 smartphones just broke cover. In terms of looks, the two handsets are worlds apart, but they do share some similarities in the specs department.

For example, both devices rely on image sensors which can be found on the Xiaomi Mi 6 - the Mi Note 3 borrows the full 12MP + 12MP dual-camera combo, while the Mi Mix 2 only features a single 12MP camera at the back. 

The Chinese company did share a bunch of official photo samples taken from the two handsets, so let's dive in and see if we can find something interesting.


Apart from offering 2x optical zoom, the dual-cam on the Mi Note 3 is also pretty good at reproducing the so-called bokeh effect – one that allows you to take photos with a blurry background in order to emphasize on the main subject in the photograph, much as a skilled photographer would with a dedicated camera by using a wide aperture setting. 


The Mi Mix 2 won't be able to emulate the bokeh effect, but its new sensor is an improvement over the original version. The new 12MP shooter features OIS and larger 1.25µm pixels, which translates to more stable images/videos and improved low-light capabilities.

Waiting for real life camera test, as I never trust "official" images provided by OEMs, as they've more likely been doctored or edited.

Lol, the Note 3 samples.
Number 7 or the one on top. The camera is struggling to differentiate between the girls hair and the black (board/window) background on the right.

Without proper software maintenance and updates this phone is worthless.

Have you owned a Xiaomi? My 5s Plus has had an update to Version 8 and version 9 is coming. Unlike Apple updates, 7 to 8 was a breeze took zero effort and no problems.
