Xiaomi UK has revealed the full details of the Mi 9’s rear-facing triple camera setup. There will be a 48 MP main camera, a 12 MP telephoto camera, and a 16 MP wide-angle camera. The OEM tweeted a few photographs that had been taken with the Mi 9 AI triple cameras, and there’s no denying the results do look impressive.

Xiaomi has decided to plug the leaks in regard to the expected main triple camera system on its upcoming Mi 9 flagship smartphone. The Chinese manufacturer has taken to Twitter to upload a few posts showing off the device and detailing the Mi 9’s camera specifications. Along with the sensor information, the OEM also described the use of a “scratch-resistant sapphire glass” cover that should help protect the cameras from bangs and bumps.

Xiaomi’s technical specifications for the Mi 9’s rear-facing triple camera setup are as follows:

  • The 48 MP main camera: Sony IMX586 sensor, 0.8 µm pixels, 1/2 in sensor, f/1.75 aperture, supports 1.6 µm 4-in-1 Super Pixel (12 MP), 6P lens, closed-loop motor.
  • The 16 MP ultra wide-angle camera: 1.0 µm, 117° Field of View, 4 cm macro photography, f/2.2 aperture, 6P lens, AF, closed-loop motor.
  • The 12 MP telephoto camera: 1.0 µm, f/2.2 aperture, 6P lens, AF, closed-loop motor.

Xiaomi then demonstrates the macro photography abilities of the camera, the laser autofocus, and the closed-loop voice coil motor (VCM), which apparently offers faster focusing speeds than open loop VCM. It’s a notable setup that should appeal to photography enthusiasts, as long as the software matches the hardware. Xiaomi has also catered for selfie fans by implementing a 20 MP sensor in the front of the Mi 9.
