Chinese companies use macro sensors to complete the quad-camera setup. Most of the time, these macro sensors are not useful and are just used as a marketing gimmick. But finally, it seems like Xiaomi will be stepping up their photography game with the Redmi Note 10 series as this time they have worked on the Macro sensor. Redmi Note series will feature a 5MP Super-Macro lens.

Today, Xiaomi global vice-president Manu Kumar Jain posted about the macro sensor of the Redmi Note 10 series. According to him, the Redmi Note 10 series features an upgraded macro camera setup. The Redmi Note 9 series featured a 5-megapixel macro sensor, which was again not very useful. But this time, Redmi is using a 5MP telephoto macro which is marketed as a 5MP Super-Macro lens.
What’s the difference between Macro & Telephoto Macro sensors?
Well, a telephoto macro sensor can work without moving the device physically closer to the object. As you know, macro sensors used for close-up shots. Well, the use of the telephoto macro sensor is similar but here you get the ability to get 2x closer to the subject than with traditional macro cameras as mentioned by Jain.

Redmi Note 10 series global launch
Redmi Note 10 global variant has also leaked. We not only got the box image of Note 10 but also the device itself. It is just like the Indian variant of the Redmi Note 10. According to the leak, the Redmi Note 10 will come with a 6.43-inch AMOLED display with a punch-hole notch. However, the chances of getting an in-display fingerprint are very less. The hands-on leaked video, which we covered earlier, showed that is there is a side-mounted fingerprint scanner; the Redmi K40 series also utilized a side-mounted fingerprint scanner to save the cost.
Coming to performance, the Redmi Note 10 comes with the Snapdragon 668 processor. There is a 48MP quad-camera setup on the rear side. We are not sure if we will see the Super-Macro sensor on the vanilla version or not. But the tweet mentions “Note 10 series” instead of a Pro version so we can expect the Super-Macro on the Note 10 as well. Other than that, the device can fast-charge at 33W. Redmi Note 10 series are all set to launch on March 4th at 20:00 (GMT+8). Let us know what are your thoughts on the Super-Macro lens, do you think it will beneficial for the consumer or another marketing gimmick?
