Introducing Redmi Note 12 Pro Plus with Samsung 200 megapixel camera
According to JBQ, Another week, let’s recap. The Redmi Note 12 series was the biggest story of the week. This phone includes Redmi Note 12, Redmi Note 12 Pro, Redmi Note 12 Pro+ and Redmi Note 12 Explorer.
The 12 Pro, Pro+ and Explorer all have MediaTek Dimensity 1080 chips, while the vanilla 12 relies on a 1st generation Snapdragon 4. All four have a 6.67-inch AMOLED screen with a frequency of 120 Hertz. All four except the Explorer have a 5000 mAh battery. Charging varies between the phones, with the 12 supporting 33 Watts, the 12 Pro 67 Watts, the Pro+ 120 Watts, while the Explorer charges its 4,300mAh battery in just 9 minutes (advertised) at 210 Watts. Buy Power bank for your SmartPhone and enjoy it.
Cameras are another point of difference. Redmi Note 12 has a 48-megapixel wide-angle camera and a 2-megapixel depth sensor. Redmi Note 12 Pro has 50 megapixel wide, 8 megapixel ultra wide and 2 megapixel macro. The Pro+ and Explorer bring the wide-angle camera to Samsung’s 200 MP ISOCELL HMX camera.
The Redmi Note 12 Explorer will go on sale in China on October 31, while the other three phones will launch on November 1.
vivo explained the camera updates for the upcoming X90 series without revealing the camera specifications. Developed by vivo itself and partner Zeiss, the X90 series focuses on improving portrait and night photography. The Ultra-Clear image quality engine is an ultra-clear algorithm that uses a virtual lens model to recover about 35% of the information lost due to optical defects. Multi-frame mode is available to improve image quality and dynamic range even further. This is especially useful for periscope lenses.
The next system is dedicated to portrait photography and is divided into three parts. The first part tries to understand the scene and recognize up to 103 points of the face and take into account the pose of the subject. The next two sections divide the work – one handles the subject and applies machine learning beauty filters, the other adjusts the background by adjusting several screens (blur, tone, brightness, etc.).
There is another dedicated system that is used for low light photography.
The maximum sensitivity is doubled and the camera can reach ISO 102400. According to vivo, the system is good enough to capture a starry night sky without a tripod or long exposure.
Much of the processing is handled by a new acceleration engine, which appears to be a successor to ISP V1. Developed in-house, it accelerates deep learning and computer vision tasks, combining traditional ISP approaches with modern AI-based solutions. We can’t wait for the X90 series.
Samsung rolled out One UI 5 and Android 13 update to Galaxy S22 series. The company added a ton of new customization features, both automatic and manual, to make your phone (and watch) look just the way you want it. There are also some practical improvements like stacked widgets to save space on your home screen. Samsung will roll out the One UI 5 update to all eligible Galaxy S and Z series devices, as well as many A series Galaxy devices, by the end of the year.
Design and Features of Redmi Note 12 Pro
JBQ says, Xiaomi has now finally unveiled its latest mid-range competitor, the Redmi Note 12 series, in China. The collection includes four models, the most attractive of which is probably the Redmi Note 12 Pro Plus due to its hardware and price.
Redmi Note 12 Pro Plus has a 6.67-inch FHD+ 120Hz AMOLED display, with a maximum brightness of 900 nits and 10-bit support. It’s certainly not the most premium panel, but it’s good for mid-range applications. Under the hood is MediaTek’s new Dimensity 1080 chipset, aided by UFS 2.2 storage and LPDDR4X RAM.
Camera-wise, the Redmi Note 12 Pro Plus performs well thanks to its 200-megapixel primary camera. This makes the Redmi Note 12 Pro Plus only the third smartphone with a 200MP camera after the Motorola Edge X30 Pro-cum-Edge 30 Ultra and the Xiaomi 12T Pro. It is the new ISOCELL HPX sensor with a physical size of 1/1.4 inch and native pixels of 0.56 µm. After 16-in-1 binning, the Redmi Note 12 Pro Plus outputs 12.5MP images with 2.24μm pixels behind the process. Either way, the sensor is aided by an 8-megapixel ultra-wide camera with 119-degree FOV, a 2-megapixel macro lens, and a 16-megapixel selfie camera. Unfortunately, there is no news about OIS.
Some other features of Redmi Note 12 Pro Plus include NFC, 3.5mm jack, 5000mAh battery and 120 Watts charging. The Redmi Note 12 Pro Plus will be available for pre-order from today. Pricing is set at CNY 2,099 (US$290) and CNY 2,299 (US$320) for the 8/256GB and 12/256GB SKUs, respectively, though early adopters get a CNY 100 discount.
Screen and Display
Xiaomi Redmi Note 12 Pro Plus 5G is designed to have a 6.7-inch AMOLED display. It is borderless and has a punch hole at the top. In addition, the resolution is 1080 x 2400 pixels and the pixel density is 393 PPI. A 120 Hertz refresh rate generally takes care of images.
Love the idea of a 200 MP smartphone but want a bigger battery? That is exactly what you get with the Pro Plus model. Expect to get the same 200 MP + 8 MP + 2 MP triple rear camera system as the Discovery Edition.
However, the Pro Plus model uses 120 Watts wired charging and a 5000mAh battery. According to Xiaomi, expect a 100% charge in just 19 minutes.
Xiaomi finally unveiled its much-lauded new charging technology earlier this week. The company launched the Redmi Note 12 series in China, and the Redmi Note 12 Pro Discovery Edition featured 210 Watts fast charging that it advertised to charge the phone in just 9 minutes. However, its performance in the real world may not be that impressive.
In the charging test by Charger Labs, Redmi Note 12 Pro Discovery Edition was able to reach the maximum charging wattage of 184.85 watts in about three minutes. Until reduced to lower watts. However, on average, the Redmi Note 12 Pro Discovery Edition charges well above 120 Watts.
While Xiaomi advertises that, the mid-range phone can charge to 100 percent in 9 minutes, Charger Labs testing shows that the Redmi Note 12 Pro Discovery Edition does it in 10 minutes and 10 seconds. It doesn’t quite live up to Xiaomi’s claim, but it’s close enough, and it’s faster than almost any other smartphone made and by a long way, too.
More interestingly, it does this without generating heat. At its hottest during testing, the Redmi Note 12 Pro Discovery Edition only reached a temperature of 43.3 °C. In comparison, the iPhone 14 Pro Max reaches 45.8 degrees Celsius with a much lower maximum wattage of 29 watts. You can set your device with beautiful Smart Watches in our website.
