It’s no longer the number of cameras or megapixels that count, but the performance of the camera setup.
While we’re waiting for the Redmi Note 13 series, which will launch soon in Europe and globally, we’re already talking about the upcoming mid-range smartphone in 2024. Well-known industry insiders can now confirm that Xiaomi has really big plans for its cameras.
For the next generation of the Redmi Note series, Xiaomi is reportedly planning to integrate a real zoom camera in the top models of the series for the first time. So far, telephoto cameras have only been found in devices priced at 700 euros and above. Even the Pixel 8 doesn’t have such a camera. That may change in the near future.
The craze for megapixels and sheer numbers of cameras no longer works
Ultimately, this is a logical development. It was also on display. Little by little, OLED panels have landed in the middle class, they’ve gotten progressively brighter and now offer 120 Hz. It’s often been about the megapixels when it comes to cameras, but that run is slowly coming to an end
internal treacheryXiaomi is counting on Telefoto to better market its 2024 mid-range smartphones. With the 13T series it’s nice to see that telephoto lenses are finally being installed and cheaper macro cameras are being offered. Also, Xiaomi is always spoiling its image by releasing irrelevant budget smartphones.
