Camera competition is moving to a different dimension in the mobile world. With the Xiaomi GN2 sensor, we will see the biggest camera to date on the Mi 11 Pro.
Smartphone manufacturers have become more prominent in cameras since last year. In fact, we can say that the camera features have become the first criterion that users place in phone purchases. While Huawei is at the top with its P40 and Mate 40 series in 2020 (according to DxOMark data), Xiaomi’s recent attacks on the camera side seem to force Huawei. Even considering the camera features claimed to be included in the Mi 11 Pro, it should not be difficult to guess the new owner of the summit. According to the information received, Xiaomi will set a new record in the mobile world with the GN2 sensor.
Xiaomi GN2 sensor will be unrivaled
It is now certain that the 50 Megapixel ISOCELL GN2 sensor developed by Samsung will be used in the Xiaomi Mi 11 Pro. The detail that makes this sensor special is of course its size. This sensor, which will be used in the Xiaomi Mi 11 Pro, will be the largest sensor to be used in a smartphone that will be widely sold so far, with a size of 1 / 1.12 inches. Today, 1 inch sensor is used in high-end DSLR machines. With the sensor to be used in Mi 11 Pro, we can say that we are close to full frame shots on smartphones.
So what does the larger sensor mean? It simply means more light and clearer photos, but that’s not all. The larger the sensor size, the better the image quality of the photos. Parallel to this, the digital pollution in the photographs also decreases.
In terms of comparison, let’s compare the size of the camera sensor in the Mi 11 Pro with some important competitors. It should be noted here that the smaller the value after the dot slash, the larger the sensor size will be.
