Xiaomi has started rolling out a new update for its MIUI beta program members. The new update is geared with some of the latest features. The MIUI 10 Beta 9.3.7 has begun rolling out on March 7, 2019. Although Xiaomi has not posted an official changelog for the update, there’s one new feature for the Redmi Note 7 Pro, Xiaomi Mi 9, and the Mi 9 SE.
MIUI 10 Beta 9.3.7 Brings Support for 48MP Camera Mode Alongside Other Features
The latest update brings support for 48MP camera mode, which will aid phones with a 48MP camera lens in the triple camera setup, including the Mi 9 and the Redmi Note 7 Pro. It is also going to be added to the Redmi Note 7 that does not have a 48MP lens. For now, it is not clear how the 48MP camera mode would work on Note 7, but it would be interesting to witness.
Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 in China comes with a 48MP sensor in the triple camera setup but the Redmi Note 7 in India missed out on it. The beta update seems to be bringing a mode to make up for it. It would be a software-backed mode to enhance images.
