Anonymous, 27 Oct 2021Dude, HM2 is just a 12mp sensor. Using 9 to 1 pixel binning, it creates image of 108 MP.You are actually clueless, you are describing pixel binning in reverse lmfao.
HM2 is an ACTUAL 108mp sensor, it uses 9 to 1 pixel binning so that a 3x3 grid of pixels will function as a single 2.1um pixel. Please don't even comment in Gsmarena if your IQ is that low
still waiting for a mid-range phone worthy to upgrade from Mi Note 10.

I LITERALLY explain how it works and for ease of understanding I provided examples images showing how those sensors actually PHYSICALLY have those 48, 56, 108 etc millions of pixels and how both binning and outputting full resolution works.

Yo, 26 Oct 2021Same dudeSame.
PocoFairRedmi, 26 Oct 2021Seeing some previous comments... I'd like to make a round up. -The cam IS indeed a 108MP... moreWant 12 MP camera with OIS. But I understand that Xiaomi is playing a game of numbers: the largest megapixel camera is bound to attract more casual buyers than OIS which many don't even know of. Same as 120W charging. Most buyers just want a phone that can take good photos and with decent battery life.
108MP and Xiaomi is yet to fix image processing because of their sub par software.
Anonymous, 26 Oct 2021Redmi should have: - at least 778 or mediatek equivalent - sd slot, 3.5 jack, IR - AMOLED... moreThen just create your company phone yourself and start selling it right? This is just business, 1 brand right now always release new phone at least 2 or 3 model from 1 series 1 year. Cmiiw
Dips, 26 Oct 2021It's not even 108 mp ,it's converted to 108 mp all the sensor are of 12 mp (pixel binning)TL;DR :
The sensor actually is 108Mp and there are ways to actually get the full resolution from it.
Pixel binning mean you take, for example a 48Mp Quad Bayer camera, and do a 2x2 binning, meaning you take 4 pixels and combine them as if there was one bigger pixel, like this :
In short, the Bayer is the color filter, each photoreceptor are only monochrome, and in top of them there is an RGB (typically) filter that only lets one of the three pass through per pixel, that's how you get colors from CMOS, a little like how LCD and Oled aren't really RGB but rather use sub-pixels.
In the image, the first layout (traditional Bayer) is how a normal Bayer with no binning is, then you have the Quad Bayer layout who show how it can get transformed into a binned 48Mp to 12Mp.
And the series of images below explain how it can be re-arranged to get the original resolution out of a Quad Bayer.
The same apply to any other binning, including the 108Mp who use a 3x3 binning, 108/(3*3) = 12.
Those two images explain it well :
Seeing some previous comments... I'd like to make a round up.
-The cam IS indeed a 108MP model, however it renders to 12MP, by combining nine 0.7um pixels into a relatively large 21um pixel. More often than not you gain nothing by using the fullres 108MP mode and you incur longer processing times and large file sizes.
-There is another 108MP cam model out there which has 8um pixels but bunches them up in fours, rendering to 27MP with an equivalent of 1.6um. I would prefer it, but for some reason that model has not gained a lot of traction, and few phones have it (see Mi Note 10).
-Redmi Note Pros are a lower midrange series, that has some current midrange stuff, like UFS 2.1 and a series 7 Snapdragon, plus... the higher end 108MP cam. That's the bonus of this series. Want a series 8 SD? The X3 pro is better for you, but you go back a 48MP cam with 0.8um pixels. Want OIS? At the moment, that belongs to another phone tier.
Pumpino, 26 Oct 2021Yeah, that number alone means the camera will be better than Apple and Pixels. Yeah, right...Ya dreaming
Is JBL Giving Some Spark In This....???

Marco M, 26 Oct 2021This is a smaller sensor and it also lacks OIS compared to the Mi 11. It bins to fewer and ... moreWell I know it doesn't have OIS, but it's likely gonna have EIS. EIS is better for video stabilization in this price range, as seen with the Poco F3, But OIS is better for night photography
Redmi should have:
- at least 778 or mediatek equivalent
- sd slot, 3.5 jack, IR
- AMOLED or a very good LCD(like iPhone XR)
- 90Hz or better
- 33W for charging is enough
- an 48 or 64mp main camera with OIS
- an UW that has 12mp are least
- price around 300$ should be great
Is the camera better than A52 64mp?
qp, 26 Oct 2021If you want OIS then you have to pay more.I would personally prefer a main sensor with OIS even if that would mean no 120W charging for example, or if it would mean no macro+depth cameras. Just my preference though.
The stupidity of having a 108Mp main camera but still having sub 12Mp Ultra-Wide and 5Mp/2Mp sensors next to it when good and cheap 12Mp are available...
If you think the camera is too bad, this device is not for you. Go get yourself Sony Xperia Pro I and enjoy taking photos of Jupiter.
