Extraordinary quality, rated top level in the world

World's highest resolution image sensor for smartphones so far
4 times the resolution, 3 times the light sensitivity

What does it mean to have a camera with 4 times as many pixels as the typical 12MP smartphone? It means that when you zoom in, there is still enough detail to create a quality photo. With the half-inch light sensor and 4-in-1 1.6μm large pixels, photos are lively with colour. In fact, Mi 9's camera takes photos with more detail than a 4K television.

All new AI triple camera - More than just another lens
A wider angle and a closer shot

The secret to amazing photography? Three essential lenses: wide angle, telephoto, and ultra wide-angle. Mi 9 has a lens with a view wider than typical lenses, and the camera is capable of correcting for distortion . It even supports macro photography, so there's no limits to your creativity.

Shoot for the moon
Powerful Night and Moon modes

With the half-inch light sensor and 4-in-1 1.6μm large pixels, Mi 9 takes the Xiaomi Night mode experience to another level. Then with Moon mode, zoom in to see the beams of moon in your photos.
