Xiaomi launched the Redmi Note 7 Pro under the new Redmi branding in India last week starting at Rs. 13,999. We already brought you the first impressions of the phone, here we have the camera samples from the phone. The phone packs a 48-megapixel primary rear camera with single LED Flash, f/1.79 aperture, 1/2.0″ Sony IMX586 sensor, 0.8μm pixel size, 6P lens has support for PDAF, EIS along with a secondary 5-megapixel camera to capture depth information in portrait shots. It has a 13-megapixel front-facing camera with f/2.0 aperture.
The camera UI is familiar with other Xiaomi smartphones running MIUI 10 with flash, HDR, AI (that can detect 33 scene categories for rear and 12 scene categories for the front camera), color modes (Normal, Vivid, Film, Amour, Latte, Sun, Cookie, Calm, Soda, Gourmet, Glow, Berries, B&W and Fade) on the top. Pressing the menu option shows timer, tilt-shift, straighten, group selfie, Google lens and 48MP option. There is a front camera toggle on the bottom along with option to select modes such as Short Video, Video, Photo, Portrait, Night, Square, Panorama and Pro mode to adjust white balance, shutter speed (1/1000s to 32 seconds). Beautify option (that can be from 1 to 5) is available for both front and rear cameras.
Coming to the image quality, daylight shots came out brilliant with good dynamic range, thanks to the large sensor. HDR shots are better, and macro shots are good as well with good amount of details. You can easily enable the 48MP mode that offers a lot of details, but the images are about 15MB in size. Dual camera portrait shots were good and the edge detection was good as well. There is an option to adjust the blur live after it is shot, and there is also light trails and studio lighting options.
Low-light shots are good, thanks to 4-in-1 Super Pixel technology that lets the camera’s sensor hardware combine 4 pixels into a single 1.6μm large pixel, and the night mode is even better making the images brighter offering more details, but there is still noise when there is hardly any light. Images with flash are good and the flash is not overpowering. Daylight front camera shots are decent, but low-light shots are just average since it only uses screen flash. Portrait for front camera looks artificial since it uses software-based blur.
