Xiaomi introduced the Mi CC9 Pro with 108MP penta rear cameras back in November last year and it was launched as Mi Note 10 for the global market. Now a new Xiaomi smartphone codenamed CAS is said to be in the work. This is rumored to pack a 108MP camera, but the company is said to use new HM2 sensor, an upgraded version of the HM1 sensor that is used in the latest Galaxy S20 Ultra that was introduced earlier this year.
The Mi CC9 Pro / Mi Note 10 comes with Samsung HMX sensor, and it was the first phone to use the Samsung’s 108MP sensor. The Xiaomi CAS is said to feature 12x optical zoom and up to 120x digital zoom. The Mi CC9 Pro / Mi Note 10 and the latest Mi 10 Lite Zoom Edition feature 5x optical zoom and 50x digital zoom. The phone will likely use the combination of periscope telephoto sensor and the 108MP camera to achieve it.
This could be the high-end version of the Mi CC 10 series, so it could be Mi CC 10 Pro. The phone is said to be powered by the upcoming Qualcomm Snapdragon 775G Mobile Platform with 5G support and is expected in July. We should know more details in the coming weeks.
