Recently, Xiaomi released the Xiaomi Mi 8 and it was exciting to see that this smartphone surpassed the iPhone X, Apple’s best flagship on DxOMark. Lei Jun also revealed that the MIX 2S uses the same camera module and it will soon be upgraded to the Xiaomi Mi 8 camera firmware.

It is interesting to note that Xiaomi Mi 8 scored 105 points for still images and 99 points in total which places it second to Huawei P20 Pro, HTC U12+ Huawei P20 and Samsung S9 Plus which are all on the same level.

Xiaomi Mi 8 uses the same dual rear 12MP camera as the Xiaomi MIX 2S. The main camera is a Sony IMX363 sensor with a 1.4-micron unit and an aperture of F/1.8. Based on this hardware, after the optimization and adjustment of the Xiaomi Mi 8 firmware, the camera quality becomes much better that Xiaomi Mi MIX 2S but the CEO himself has promised that the Xiaomi Mi MIX 2S firmware will be upgraded soon and it is worth the wait.

      Price-wise yes but the camera sensor isntalled in note (S5K2L7) isn’t much worse than Mix 2s. Nokia 8 has the same sensor and costs x4-x5 as much. It can be very good potentially.
