Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 Super Night Scene Mode

The Redmi Note 7 Super Night Scene mode helps in capturing brighter and more detailed images in low light conditions as opposed to the normal mode. It works on the same principle as Google’s Night Scene mode that we have seen on the Pixel 3 (review) smartphone. While the Google’s Night Scene mode takes between 6 to 15 images, the Super Night Scene mode takes up to 8 images with different exposure and combines them to produce the final picture. The Super Night Scene mode made its debut in the Xiaomi Mi Mix 3, and later it made its way to a few other smartphones from the brand which include Mi 8, Mi 8 Explorer Edition, and Mi Mix 2S.
