Donovan Sung, the global spokesperson of the chinese company, has come to Madrid to present to the press the latest news that will come to our country. But as is traditional first made count of the great success of Xiaomi, as achieve in just seven years of life the 15,000 million of billing to become the fourth largest mobile phone maker in the world after Samsung, Apple and Huawei. In Spain, after only six months of official presence are already the third best-selling brand with 14% compared to 24% for Samsung and for 23% of Huawei and surpassing brands as established as Apple (13%) and BQ (6.9 per cent).
The first of the two mobile phones presented by Xiaomi is the Redmi Note 5, which has a Snapdragon processor 636, the most advanced of the range to 600 from Qualcomm, the screen of 5,99-inch with aspect ratio 18:9 and 403 dots per inch and a battery of 4000 mAh that ensures that it lasts for two days. All for a price of 199€ for the version with 3 GB of memory and 32 of storage and $ 249 (us) in the version of 4+64GB in colors black, gold, and blue.
However, what I most wanted to highlight Sung of this terminal have been their capabilities photographic. Account with a double rear camera equipped with artificial intelligence, with a main sensor of 12 megapixels, aperture f/1.9 and pixel size of 1.4 µm to capture more light, and a second 5-megapixel designed to capture the depth of the scene. Among its virtues artificially intelligent would be what Xiaomi calls segmentation semantics, which separates the image in two layers to leave an out-of-focus. It also allows you to selfis type portrait with your sensor, front 13-megapixel camera and a technique called AI Beautify 4.0, which distinguishes different regions of the face to make different adjustments in the same, so that the system is to take away wrinkles around the eyes don’t blend the hairs of the beard.
But the highlight has been the My Mix 2S, which they have wanted to present as the fusion of art and technology. Responsible for the appearance of this range is the industrial designer French Philippe Starck and earlier models have won several design awards and are present in some museums of the bouquet. In that aspect there is not much difference with its predecessor, be available in black and white, and constructed with ceramic materials instead of metal and glass in normal ranges premium, with a border of gold on the block that contains the dual camera and the LED flash. Maintains also its main defect: the position of the front camera in the lower right corner, which forces you to rotate the phone to use it with comfort.
Sung also wanted to highlight its dual 12-megapixel camera, and especially the main sensor Sony IMX363 with aperture f/1.8 and pixels of 1.4 µm and wide angle lens, leaving the secondary as a telephoto lens. It features an optical image stabilizer of fourth-axis technology and Dual Pixel for a fastest approach. Incorporates a technology for removing noise in photos in low light, consisting in the capture of many frames, and a subsequent analysis that uses all these outlets to remove the grain. Xiaomi also claims that it is able to detect up to 206 types of scenes divided into 25 categories to process the photo correctly.
In addition to the camera, which is the main novelty in comparison to its predecessor, the My Mix 2S with a Snapdragon 845 manufactured with technology from 10 nanometers, battery 3400 mAH, 6 GB of RAM and two models with 64 and 128 GB storage for 499 and 599€respectively. Supports technology to wirelessly charge Qi, and will sell a charger compatible.
All these phones will be available in stores Xiaomi’s next Friday, may 25. They have also announced that their IP camera in My Home Security.Camera 360 is available in shops such as PC Components and Media Markt from today for 39,99€.
