The sensor’s details include 50 megapixel’s resolution, 1/1.28-inch sensor size, 1.22μm pixel size, and 2.44um fusion large pixels.
The new sensor is described as a small facelift of last year’s IMX700 sensor as both features a near-identical set of specifications.
Xiaomi announced that the new sensor is a bit smaller at 1/1.56-inch sensor size but is still larger than the iPhone 13’s sensor size of 1/1.88-inches. The performance of both the IMX707 and IMX766 will be boosted by Xiaomi’s new “Image Brain” that promises speedier image processing and better shots of fast-moving objects.
The Xiaomi 12 has impressive hardware and the 12 and 12 Pro include camera software upgrades like reduced shutter lag, burst shooting improvements, and subject tracking for both human and animal faces.
Low-light photography appears to be a major highlight of the Sony IMX707 camera sensor and official images showing off the Xiaomi 12 Pro’s night photography capabilities have been shared.
A new report indicates that the Xiaomi 12 and Xiaomi 12 Pro have now departed from Samsung sensors that were used on the Xiaomi Mi 11 series, and are now using Sony sensors “with greater emphasis on experience.”
