Xiaomi showcases Mi 10 camera samples as it confirms MWC 2020 attendance
Xiaomi CEO Lei Jun has been peppering Weibo in the last few days with details about the Mi 10 series. While we have already seen some informal shots taken with what was probably the Mi 10 Pro, Jun has now published a more official set of images. The images, which we have included below, showcase the Mi 10 series' four rear-facing cameras. As predicted, the Mi 10 and Mi 10 Pro will feature a 108 MP and 1/1.33-inch main sensor, along with what look like examples of ultra-wide-angle and macro lenses.
Additionally, Frederic Van Strydonck has uploaded a video highlighting the video capabilities of the Mi 10, which you can watch here. Incidentally, the Mi 10 series will also support High Efficiency Image File Format (HEIF), which offers a 2.39x higher compression rate than JPEG without any perceived loss in image quality.
Separately, Xiaomi has confirmed that it will be attending MWC 2020 in Barcelona at the end of the month. While other companies have withdrawn from the conference because of the ongoing coronavirus epidemic, Xiaomi still plans to launch its latest smartphones and other hardware. However, it will take precautions to prevent the spread of the virus. The full statement can be read below.
With the continuing spread of the novel coronavirus pneumonia, we would like to inform our fans, media friends, partners and users that the health and safety of everyone is a top priority for all of us at Xiaomi.
Also, we will attend Mobile World Congress Barcelona 2020 as planned, and launch our latest smartphones as well as a range of smart hardware.
Xiaomi is committed to containing the current outbreak by following all effective recommended measures to safeguard the health and well-being of its employees, fans, media friends, partners and users who are coming to visit us around the world.
Thus, we have put in place further instructions regarding our global product launch on February 23, as well as at our MWC booth located at 3D10, Hall 3, Fira de Barcelona Gran Vía, from February 24 to 27.
– We will make sure that all employees travelling from China show no symptoms and will have been out of China for at least 14 calendar days before their arrival in Barcelona for our launch event and MWC.
– We will make sure all senior executives of the company scheduled to take part in any kind of activities and meetings will have been out of China for at least 14 calendar days prior to our launch event and MWC.
– We will follow GSMA’s guidance and ensure that the exhibition booth and all displayed products are disinfected on a frequent basis.
– We will make sure that all the staff with booth presentation duty are from our local offices across Europe. We will also ensure they have no symptoms for 14 calendar days before offering on ground support at our launch event and MWC booth.
Thank you all for your understanding and support.
