So far, this year has been a great year for Xiaomi. The company has already launched the Redmi K20 series that includes the Redmi K20 and the Redmi K20 Pro in India. This year Xiamoi\'s sub brand Redmi become an independent brand on its own. The company has launched several smartphones starting with the Redmi Note 7 series early this year. Now the company is planning to introduce more smartphone in the upcoming days. Earlier this week, Redmi\'s General Manager Lu weibing confirmed that the engineers at redmi are working on a 64MP camera phone that comes with four rear cameras.
We don\'t have a fixed release date yet, neither company gave a hint. But considering that company is heavily promoting this one, we can expect a launch in upcoming a few months from now. Ahead of the launch, company has reveals that the 64MP camera will be able to take high resolution images of up to 20MB in size. This seems a great deal for those who love to take pictures with their smartphones. Pictures taken at such a high resolution means there won\'t be any loss of detail even if you decide to zoom in for some reasons. According to the company, the pictures taken by this camera will be able to produce pictures better than 8K resolution.
Xiamoi has further gave some details about the number of camera stating that the smartphone will have four cameras on the rear panel. The specs of other three camera lens hasn\'t been revealed yet. The name of the phone hasn\'t confirmed by the sources but tech enthusiasts suggest it to be Redmi Note 8 Pro. With the 64MP camera phone, Redmi is clearly aiming to compete with Realme and Samsung who are also planning to launch 64MP camera phone by later this year.
There is a reason why Samsung has been dethroned by Xiaomi in the world's second largest smartphone market, and that's because Xiaomi is the king of budget smartphones. While a lot of companies had been trying to compete with Xiaomi in the same category recently, Mi continues to be the undisputed leader of value-for-money smartphones. If there was any doubt in anybody's mind regarding that fact, the Redmi K20 Pro has washed them away with swift efficiency. Starting at just INR 27,999/$405, it has set the bar way too high and the price way too low for anyone to compete. Just take a look at the key specs below to know what we are getting for that price and your mind may truly be blown!

· 6.39 inch, AMOLED display with HDR support and no notch!
· 6GB/8GB RAM

The most expensive version with 256GB storage and 8GB RAM costs INR 30,999/$450, which at this point makes it the best value for money proposition in the world of smartphones.
Xiaomi Mi 9 SE is another great phone in the budget category. The worldwide release of the Pixel 3a proved really good for the smartphone industry, as its low price and great camera with exceptional visual experience proved that the mid-range market has lots of potential to grow. Everyday smartphones seem to go bigger but not everyone is fan of huge display. The Xiaomi Mi 9 SE comes with a smaller display. There are already so many mid-range phones. The Pixel 3a is definitely one of the best, and the Mi 9 SE has made to the second position. The Nokia 7.1 is proved to be one of the best low budget smartphone.
The device comes with the glass sandwich design alone feels as good as the OnePlus 7. It is available in black color which comes with the problem of consistent need of wiping fingerprints. It is powered by the Qualcomm snapdragon 712 processor, 6GB RAM, and has 64GB or 128GB storage. That said, there is no headphone port or expandable storage. The battery is kind of small but enough for this device - 3070mAh.
The display is super AMOLED with FHD+ panel, comes with 19.5:9 aspect ratio, 1080 x 2340 pixel resolution. It is running Android Pie out of the box and runs heave MIUI 10. The Xiamoi Mi 9 SE has triple camera setup consists of a 48-MP main sensor, 8MP 2x telephoto zoom lens, and a 13MP ultra-wide angle lens. The image quality is good. The 48MP sensor uses pixel-binning to produce sharp, colorful, and vibrant images. At the front camera it uses 20MP selfie camera. It lacks the overall quality. There is also a beauty mode for taking selfies with a number of tweak and options. The Mi 9 SE comes with an 18W USB-C fast charger. It will take you from zero to 100% in under an hour and 30 minutes.Much like the Pixel 3a, there is no wireless charging included. It's a shame given that the Mi 9 SE has a glass back, but it's not too much of a big deal given that fast-charging is included.
Huawei may be facing some international setback after U.S government sactions but fellow Chinese smartphone company Xiamoi is looking for expansion in their products. Xiamoi is working of a new model of Mi that is aimed at young and fashionable people. Mi CC is the latest brand from Xiaomi unveiled on Friday. The company said it stands for camera plus camera in reference to its dual-camera feature but apparently it also refer to cool, colorful, and creative. The end goal of this new phone is to attract the global young mobile consumer.
The company has developed beautiful piece of hardware so far, for the people who care about the looks as well as performance of the smartphones. To date, Xiaomi has launched phones as good as their competition but at a fraction of cost. So far, the company was focusing on high-tech devices to compete with giants in the mobile industry but the focus has shifted to entire new audience who prefer aesthetics over performance. Since Xiaomi has a history of innovative devices with low price tag, the latest Mi CC is one to watch for. Xaimoi has recently bought a smartphone app development business owned by Meitu.
Meitu app has been sold just over 3.5 million times after getting into the smartphone business since 2013. Those numbers were enough to attract Xiaomi's interest in the business. Meitu has a similar positive impression on the fashionable young audience and has gain huge financial success from this small segment of the industry. Xiaomi hasn't said anything about its design or other specification but called it different. "Mi CC is created by one of the youngest product teams in Xiaomi, among which half are art majors and are dedicated to creating a trendy design for young consumers," it wrote in an announcement. There is a teaser which feature this phone but due to stickers and graphics, the phone itself is pretty much hidden.
Xiaomi isn't a big brand when it comes to smartphone market, but its progressing with leaps and bounds. The Xiaomi Mi9 was the first device with the snadpdragon 855 chipset in that price range, and now we are looking forward to world's first 64MP camera. This was discovered by the XDA developers after they saw a line of code in the camera app of the developer kit for the upcoming MIUI 10 which is the Xiamoi's user interface laying over the top of the android. The code has multiple lines that highlight the 64MP camera capability and it looks like the lines are for a watermark being placed over pictures taken by a phone.
Samsung also announced a 64MP sensor for smartphones which tops the 48MP seen on recent current devices including the Xiaomi Mi9. According to the reports, it is still in the development phase, and it will take some time. The company is right now in the process to launch the latest Redmi K20 series. It also rebranded K20 smartphone series in some countries under the Mi name. Other than the camera specs, there isn't much in the rumors. The in-system camera app has also been upgraded to the latest MIUI 10.
With 64MP the Xiaomi camera could take amazing pictures just like high-definition images. So far Google's Pixel has the best result when it comes to taking pictures in low-light. We have to see how Xiamoi improve its software to take great images and compete the global smartphone manufacturers. The 64MP camera sensor supports real-time HDR up to 100-decibel and a dual conversion gain. This will also help the smartphone to create rich hues. The color accuracy will be far better and noise will be minimized. We don't have any words from Xiamoi's about the rumors or its price but it surely going to add some extra price to the cost.
