A professional take

Great photos are taken anytime, anywhere. That's why the 13MP 2nd gen Sony IMX214 CMOS sensor comes with Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) to compensate for handheld movements, giving you sharp images even in low lighting. The 4MP front shooter brightens up smiles too, with large 2μm pixels to let more light in. It's 66% larger than the 1.2μm pixels found in average sensors and comes with Beautify, which intelligently applies one of 36 smart filters for amazing selfies.

Fast and steady

Sony camera with optical image stabilization

When taking low-light photos, even the slightest handheld vibrations can cause blurring. Mi Note's solution to this is a professional-grade OIS. The built-in gyroscope detects the slightest trembles and a powerful image stabilization processor compensates for this. It controls the camera’s VCM motor to ensure images stay sharp and clear.

Flash a smile
The Philips two-tone flash assesses room color temperature and intelligently calculates the amount of cool whites and warm yellows to mix and emit when the flash goes off. Its score of 93 on the Color Rendering Index is nearly twice that of previous generation flashes. Combined with dual-frame synthesis flash technology, taking photos with flash has never looked this natural.

Supersized pixels
Each pixel on the 4MP front camera sensor measures 2 microns - nearly twice the size of typical front cameras. Bigger pixels deliver more detail, more brightness and less noise. It’s a more effective way of increasing image quality than simply increasing pixel count. So whether you’re taking selfies or video calls, it’s bound to show you off in the best light.
