Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro has a class-leading 108MP camera

The 108MP camera sensor was first seen on the Xiaomi Mi Note 10 and Mi Note 10 Pro in late 2019, wowing smartphone reviewers worldwide with its impressive performance. The Mi Note 10 Pro was the first non-premium flagship phone with a camera that hit the top charts.  See our Xiaomi Mi Note 10 Pro review too.

Samsung has also launched the Galaxy S20 Ultra, a premium flagship smartphone with a 108MP camera as well, and we look forward to seeing how it performs too.

Both Xiaomi and Samung use the 108MP ISOCELL sensor, though with different configurations and implementations, in the Xiaomi Mi Note series, the Xiaomi Mi 10 series and the Galaxy S20 Ultra. The 108MP sensor was developed in a collaboration between the two smartphone brands in 2019 and has since become the smartphone camera sensor to beat since its debut.

  1. Xiaomi never disappoints! You’ll agree with me that Xiaomi is currently one of the best smartphone brands in the world, the value they offer is unheard of.

    I’ve been a loyal customer of theirs for years now and I doubt if that’s going to change anytime soon.

    As usual, you’ve done really well with this article. Keep it up.
