The Chinese tech giant Xiaomi has released its Xiaomi Mi 11 with the new Snapdragon 888 Chipset. This is to say, that it is the first phone in the mobile world which is powered by the SD-888 chipset. The Snapdragon 888 is the most powerful and efficient chipset of Qualcomm. It boasts faster performance for AI applications with a total of 26 TOPS of number-crunching power (up from 15 TOPS on the S865).
This was leveraged by BlinkAI whose deep learning software powers the Night Mode in Mi 11’s video camera. Let’s check out this.
Traditional night modes use image fusion, which that can be slow as the sensor needs to capture several frames. BlinkAI’s algorithm uses a neural network to mimic how the human eye works and only needs one frame. This allows it to enhance the image’s detail and vibrancy in just milliseconds.
Xiaomi Mi 11 has a 108 MP main sensor (1/1.33”). That is a lot of data to process, even if binning is used. The Snapdragon 888 seems to be handling it just fine, though.
Certainly, Now, this device is available only in China. We aren’t confirmed that when it will launch globally. But we are expecting that it will launch globally soon.
