The Xiaomi CC9 Pro with a 108MP main camera is probably the most talked-about device in recent times. Recent speculation suggests that this smartphone will not have a 5G version and its display will not support a high refresh rate. However, a new close-up image of this smartphone shows that the display comes with curved edges. The sides seem slightly curved, at least on the top part. The curvature is definitely lower than that of the Xiaomi Mi Note 2. According to the company, “the outward curved extension makes the full-screen use more immersive…”
This smartphone uses Xiaomi and Samsung’s customized 108MP ISOCELL HMX CMOS sensor. It is the world’s first large-size dynamic image sensor with a 1/1.33 inch photosensitive area, which can be used in low light conditions. It captures more light than other small sensors. Xiaomi official said that this smartphone may be the first mass-produced 108MP phone. In addition to the 108MP sensor, the Xiaomi CC9 Pro will also adopt a five-camera solution. The five sensors include a super-telephoto lens + 12 MP sensor + a 1.5cm macro lens + a 20MP super wide-angle lens + a 108MP main camera.
According to Xiaomi, the hardware cost of the Xiaomi CC9 Pro is very high. The cost of the camera module alone is five times that of the previous generation CC9. Having considered the specs and features of this smartphone, experts believe that it will not cost less than 3000 yuan ($425). The 108MP sensor output images with a resolution of 10000 x 11852 and the size per image easily exceed 20MB.
