MIUI code reveals screen and camera specs of several upcoming Xiaomi smartphones
Xiaomi is notorious industry-wide for launching a barrage of confusing, similarly-specced products that often undercut each other. That trend isn't going away anytime soon, by the looks of it. Twitter user @xiaomiui stumbled upon 13 new Xiaomi devices buried deep within the MIUI code. We also get a sneak peek at some of their specifications.
At least two upcoming Xiaomi smartphones codenamed Cygnus and Hyacinth could ship with a 108MP ISOCELL HMX camera sensor. The former will include an ultra-wide-angle lens, a telephoto lens that offers up to 5x optical zoom and a 90Hz screen. It could ship with an under-display selfie camera, too. On the other hand, Hyacinth will pair that sensor with a 120Hz screen and two unknown camera modules.
Moving on to Bestla and Divine, we get a 64MP ISOCELL GW3 sensor on both phones. There isn't much information about Bestla, but Divine will pair it with an ultra-wide-angle lens, a telephoto lens, a 90Hz screen and an under-display selfie camera. It could, in all likelihood, be a scaled-down version of Cygnus.
Mercury is quite interesting, too, as it packs a screen that refreshes at 120Hz. It's hard to tell the full megapixel count of its camera sensor, given that '12MP Pixel Binning' applies to a wide range of hardware.
That leaves us with Lepus, the only smartphone of the lot that packs Samsung's yet-to-be-announced 50MP ISOCELL GN3 sensor. Its remaining specs are mostly identical to that of Divine and Cygnus. Only the top-of-the-line Xiaomi Mi 11 Pro and Mi 11 Ultra pack an ISOCELL GN2 sensor, so we can reasonably assume that Lepus will be a high-end offering.
Interestingly enough, the list is missing some big names, such as the Mi Mix 4 (codenamed Odin). We're probably looking at the Mi 11T and Mi Note 11 series of smartphones, which are usually launched in Q3 or Q4 of a calendar year. Do bear in mind that the list in question could include Poco and Redmi devices, too. It shouldn't be long before the rumour mill begins churning out information about the aforementioned Xiaomi smartphones.
