Yet, OnePlus 3T's 16MP front camera could not shoot beyond 1080p unless some update jinxes me now
Ershadq, 07 Apr 2017Can you see difference between fullHD and 2k resolution on 5's inch display on your naked eye?Unless you use it for VR, nope.
It'll just be power hogging, marketing feature.
Anonymous, 06 Apr 2017Its 2017, should be at least 2k resolution on a flagship...Can you see difference between fullHD and 2k resolution on 5's inch display on your naked eye?
Anonymous, 07 Apr 2017I have seen it before.. Phone did not have 4k video for front cam. I mean about another device... more4k equal to 2160×3840 which is 8.3 megapixels. An 8MP Camera sensors are generally 3:4 with 2448×3264 resolution. So the 4k image is significantly wider. the minimum amount of megapixels to record 4k and having aspect ratio 3:4 (as it is generally with camera sensors) is 2880×3840 which equal to 11.6 megapixels.. But that doesn't mean minimum megapixels count to record 4k should be 11.6........... It will exactly equal to the pixel count of a 4k image i.e 8.3
$289 base price seems really damn good considering that's budget/mid-range price and this has a 835 while most in this price have 625s
Fake af. GFXBench only reveals the device's current spec, not its variety i.e the memories. It should only say 4 or 6GB of Ram and 64 or 128GB of internal storage but definitely not both. Also, there's no 8mp sensor can support 4K video. Sony can't even. How much more a xiaomi. Look at all the fools believing. Can't believe GSMarena also believed this. lol
Anonymous, 07 Apr 2017I have seen it before.. Phone did not have 4k video for front cam. I mean about another device... more8mp is barely for 4k,because 8mp resolution is for 4k ,but yeahh,its barely,so it will make a camera workhard,so more resolution than 8mp is better for 4k
Anonymous, 07 Apr 2017I have seen it before.. Phone did not have 4k video for front cam. I mean about another device... moreNOPE... Camera resolution have NOTHING to do with HD/FHD/QHD video recording capabilities, even 2mp camera can take 720p videos & 5mp can take 1080p videos, as long as the SoC support & the OS capable of recording 4K video using front camera, it can.
Just hope the Mi6 really come with Nougat, so it won't be too outdated when Android O launched few months later (as ALL MIUI8 now still using MM-based Android, Nougat MIUI is mi6 selling point alongside its SD835, making both software & hardware #1 in Xiaomi flagship lineup)

I believe no 8mp sensor can support 4K video. Usually at least 11mp.
AnonD-523334, 06 Apr 2017Biggest good news for me is 5.1" screen. I was fearing they'll go to 5.5" path but xiaomi has ... moreAgree. Me too. 5.1 inch is suitable for me. Hope they stick with it. And make plus one for who chasing the bigger screen.
raky, 06 Apr 2017one more time, that price will be (if it will be) in China....in rest of the world, we would h... moreMore ram = great difference in day to day performance.
Plus Galaxy phones tend to slow down after a few months, Xiaomi - Miui phones do significantly less so. So forget the SD835, it's about Ram and OS optimization where it's at.
Also Xiaomi puts actually big batteries. So expect 4000 Mah from this.
The software is supported for longer too.
Where you lose is hardware service (you pretty much have to send it back to china which is unacceptable to many). The solution is to be extra careful.
The other problem is the camera, which while good I doubt it would be as good as Samsung's, which indded is a problem to many.
So unless you care *deeply* about the camera the Mi6 would be the clearly better solution. Better battery, better performance, better long term support and a sane aspect ratio so despite the smaller screen/device you actually get the same amount of data instead of ugly black bars (when compared to s8)
So yeah, it would be a better solution from S7/S8 for some people, worse for others (those that *need* good hardware service and/or an ultra high level camera).
3840 × 2160 is ~ 8mp, how can it have a 7 mp front camera with UHD video recording?
Xiaomi has to step up their camera game, especially their software.
Really and absolutely compliments to Xiaomi, and not just for sporting the SD835 and 3th only to the S8 and the XZ Premium, but to include 4K recording from the front/selfie camera. That i was expecting it from Samsung in the S8. So really well done to Xiaomi.
