[Review] Introducing Camera of Redmi Note 5 Pro: What Makes it India's Camera Beast

Hello, Mi Fans!
The Redmi Note 5 Pro has a dual camera and is the first Redmi Note series phone with the dual camera setup in India. It has a 12MP - IMX486 sensor from Sony to capture still images & a secondary 5MP Color sensor to capture the depth information.

The rear camera comes with a portrait mode. Redmi Note 5 introduces an AI-based computing engine specifically for camera.

For portrait mode it uses a process called semantic segmentation, based on powerful deep learning algorithm. Semantic segmentation tries to understand and break down an image at pixel level, it separates each pixel into actual objects. In portrait mode, there are two layers, background and foreground.

This helps in determining the pixels:
• That are part of the foreground (Subject - Person, most of the time)
• That are part of the background

Check out the snaps from Rear Camera:

For stable video recording, the rear camera comes with the electronic image stabilization.

Just like the rear camera, it uses AI-based computing engine to make this happen, but unlike the rear camera, this is done with a SINGLE camera, so the deep learning algorithms are key.

It comes with a 20MP front camera with a large f/2.2 aperture. It’s not just any 20MP sensor, it’s also high quality - the front camera has an IMX376 sensor from Sony.

It combines 4 pixels into 1 by the process called pixel binning, the result is that each pixel has less noise and lets in more light, the effective pixel size is 2 microns, it’s a superpixel that is really good in low light.

Redmi Note 5 Pro also comes with a LED selfie light, optimized for the color temperature. It has a 4500K temperature light which produces natural, cool white light which looks good on a face.

The front camera has great low light performance and our awesome portrait selfie mode

Check the snaps from the front camera:

Redmi Note 5 Pro comes with Beautify 4.0, optimized with deep learning and tuned specifically for India. Beautify 4.0 works on both the front and rear camera. Normal beautify modes use a single filter for your entire face, but Beautify 4.0 goes deep for
more details. Beautify 4.0 intelligently identifies different skin variations.
T-Zone is typically the oiliest part of your face and it’s more prone to acne, clogged pores etc. using a single filter across your whole face, it still might leave behind some blemishes because they tend to be worse in the t-zone. Beautify 4.0 smooths them out but not the entire face, look closely at the areas around these spots in the images below, the image still retains details and contour lines.

Similarly, Beautify 4.0 can retain shape and detail on eyebrows, here’s a comparison between a uniformly applied algorithm on the left, and you can see how the eyebrows become blurry.

Unlike simple filters where lips/features get shaped and accentuated, with beautify 4.0, they look even more natural with a beautiful rosy tint.

A bindi is a big thing in India, with Beautify 4.0, it can recognize the bindi on the forehead and intelligently beautify the rest of the face. Accordingly, it works well with nose pins too. Beautify 4.0 is trained to preserve details on facial hair on men faces as well.

Amazing portrait mode powered by AI-based algorithms, Beautify 4.0 tuned for India, and EIS for stable videos, that's Redmi Note 5 Pro - India’s camera beast
