Redmi Teases 50MP Sony IMX766 & IOS in Redmi Note 12 Pro

Today, Redmi announced that the Redmi Note 12 series is equipped with a Sony IMX766 sensor.

Officials said that IMX766 is a favorite of the flagship camera phones, and it is also the “generation U” of mobile photography. Redmi popularized the flagship sensor.

It is reported that the Sony IMX766 sensor has a 1/1.56-inch outsole, which can get more light in, and the lens resolution is 50MP. It supports full-pixel omnidirectional focusing technology to make focusing more accurate and fast. Moreover, it also supports an AI tracking lock, which can detect and identify objects that are often used as the subject of photography such as faces, human bodies, pets, and flowers in real-time, and automatically give priority to track.

Redmi’s new image concept is “Excellent picture quality, express yourself” to bring flagship images to more passionate young users:

  • Bring flagship “image technology” to the public
  • Use “advanced algorithms” to adjust
  • Use “interesting gameplay” to inspire young people to create
  • Advocating the “fresh and creative” tone style

Xiaomi’s imaging capabilities have made fantastic improvements this year due to the “Xiaomi Imaging AI”.

Now, the Redmi Note 12 Pro’s imaging awakens and inherits this AI for you:

  • From image quality optimization to computational photography
  • From intent recognition to speed improvements
  • From handheld image stabilization (OIS) to super night noise reduction
  • From color reproduction to flagship images with better imaging styles, and more advanced adjustments

Another feature of the IMX766 is its support for DOL-HDR, a “quasi-simultaneous” method of short and long exposure sampling in which long and short exposures are performed in a near-overlapping fashion, with the next exposure starting before the previous frame’s information output is finished. This greatly reduces the interval between long and short exposures.

At the same time, the simultaneity of the overlapping images is preserved, which solves the problem of deviation of different exposure images in the overlapping area.

This sensor has been widely used by high-end flagships as soon as it came out. For example, the main camera of Xiaomi 12 uses Sony IMX766.

More importantly, the Redmi Note 12 series also supports OIS optical image stabilization, which compensates for camera shake during shooting by moving the lens group or the position of the photosensitive chip, making the shooting picture clear and stable.

In terms of core configuration, the phone uses a top-centered punch-hole screen, which may be made of OLED. The phone is equipped with a MediaTek Dimensity 1080 processor. The standard version supports 67W wired flash charging, and the Pro version supports 120W wired flash charging.
