    Mi 11 With 108MP Sensor Scores a Good 120 Points

    Xiaomi’s Mi 11 is a variant of the Chinese manufacturer’s flagship lineup for 2021. The Mi 11 features a triple camera set up and the housing looks positively different. Let’s see some specs on the optics department.

    For the main sensor, the Mi 11 uses a 108 MP sensor which measures 1/1.33″ in size and is made up of 0.8μm pixels. f/1.85 lens sits on top of it and the module is supported by OIS. The ultra-wide department is taken care of by a 13MP sensor with an f/2.3 lens which enables a 123° field of view. Adding onto it is a 5MP macro camera with an f/2.3 aperture lens and supports autofocus. Other features include the ability for shooting 8K up to 30fps, 4K up to 60fps and 1080p up to 120fps. It also supports HDR 10+.

    “The Mi 11 is worth considering for any mobile photographer who doesn’t prioritize long zoom performance,” says DxOMark

    The Mi 11 has scored a healthy 127 for Photo, 59 for Zoom and 107 for Video. The overall score of 120 points ties the Mi 11 with Google Pixel 5 and Exynos-powered versions of the Note 20 series devices.

    The review on DxOMark’s website states that the Mi 11 produces well-detailed images while maintaining accurate white balance and pleasant colour. The level of details gives credits to the 108MP sensor. The video department on the Mi11 wins special praise and has shown good performance when it comes to AF, stabilization, white balance and noise/detail balance.

    Even though the Mi 11 has tied the Pixel 5 which has unarguably one of the best camera systems on a smartphone, the Xiaomi still falls short on some aspects that are supposed to be strong points of true flagships. Low light photography suffers from slower AF, exposure issues, lesser details and noise.
