Xiaomi 15 Pro Rumored to Come with 1-Inch Primary Camera Sensor

Xiaomi is gearing up to launch the Xiaomi 15 Pro as part of its upcoming Xiaomi 15 series, and rumors suggest that the phone could feature a 1-inch sensor for its primary camera. A tipster has leaked details about the rear camera setup of the smartphone, hinting at significant changes to the sensors compared to its predecessor, the Xiaomi 14 series. In addition to the camera upgrades, the Xiaomi 15 Pro is also rumored to be the first device to be powered by the yet-to-be-released Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 chipsets.

Leaked Camera Specifications for Xiaomi 15 Pro

According to a post on Weibo by tipster Experience More, the Xiaomi 15 Pro is expected to sport a triple rear camera setup similar to its predecessor, but with improved sensors. The primary camera is rumored to be a 50-megapixel OV50K sensor with a 1-inch sensor size.

The OmniVision sensor, although not officially launched yet, is speculated to be an enhancement over the existing OV50H sensor found in devices like the iQOO 12 series and Motorola Edge 50 Ultra. The Xiaomi 13 Pro featured a 1-inch sensor, but the company switched to a Light Hunter 900 sensor with a custom Leica Summilux lens for its successor.

Additionally, the telephoto lens on the Xiaomi 15 Pro is expected to receive an upgrade with a 50-megapixel Sony IMX882 sensor, replacing the Samsung ISOCELL JN1. The post also mentioned that while the Sony sensor’s resolution may be slightly lower, it offers good value in terms of power consumption and technical specifications. The performance of the camera setup will also depend on the aperture size, which is currently unknown.

While details about the ultra-wide-angle camera sensor remain scarce, it is speculated to be a 50-megapixel shooter.

Speculations About Xiaomi 15 Series

Reports suggest that the Xiaomi 15 series could be the first to launch with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 chipset. The company is rumored to have exclusive rights for the chipset’s debut and may showcase it with the flagship Xiaomi 15 series. Following Xiaomi’s launch, other brands like Oppo and Vivo are expected to release phones with the same chipset.

Additionally, rumors point towards the Xiaomi 15 series featuring an in-display ultrasonic sensor, an upgrade from the optical fingerprint sensor present in the Xiaomi 14 series, offering enhanced security for users.

Stay tuned for more updates on the Xiaomi 15 Pro and the Xiaomi 15 series as they unfold.
