Xiaomi has detailed a new update for participants of the MIUI beta program that brings an interesting feature to some of the company’s latest and hottest products.
The new update is MIUI 10 beta 9.3.7, which, as seasoned beta testers would know, begun rolling out to select users yesterday. Xiaomi hasn’t provided the full changelog, but from the preview that we have, there is one catchy addition for users of the Xiaomi Mi 9, Mi 9 SE, Redmi Note 7 and Redmi Note 7 Pro.
Lately, we’ve seen an influx of smartphones with 48MP camera lenses, including the Redmi Note 7 Pro and the Chinese variant of the Redmi Note 7. In India, the latter swaps the 48MP unit for a 12MP lens, but in the latest update to MIUI 10 beta 9.3.7, the company claims to have added support for 48MP camera mode.
At the moment, we can’t say much about how this camera mode works, but the company says its also coming to the flagship Xiaomi Mi 9 and its SE counterpart. These two already come with a 48MP sensor as part of the tri-lens camera array on the back.
The brief changelog also says owners of the Mi MIX 3, Mi 9 SE, Mi 8, Mi 8 Pro, Mi 8 Lite, Mi 8 SE, Mi 8 EE, Mi Max 3, Mi Play, Redmi 6, Redmi 6A, Redmi 5, Redmi 5A, and the POCO F1 have a new Android security patch, probably for February 2019.
We will know about everything the update brings to these devices when Xiaomi publishes the full changelog in a short while. That is also when we get the official download links for those who want to install the update manually.
