I was using the Droid Hardware Info app for Android and I checked the "camera" tab, and surprisingly for my Redmi Note 10 Pro, it only showed a 12MP. According to the specs, Redmi Note 10 Pro should have a 108MP camera.

Is this app giving me the wrong information or did the camera manufacturer put 12 instead of 108 or something? Could someone tell me what's happening?

EDIT: I am wondering if 108MP is the actual physical resolution of the camera?

  • I don't know your device but usually phones with such a sensor chip don't make 108 Mpixel pictures, that does not make sense. Instead they combine multiple pixels for decreasing image noise and they only use a certain region of the chip sensor. The hardware info apps only see the spec that Android exposes to the apps.

  • The device has an array of several cameras. Did the app show only one camera's specs? Commented Jul 25, 2022 at 3:55
  • @YisroelTech , it shows 2, which I believe should be for the front and the back, while the rear camera is a quad cam, should've shown 5

    Try play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=ru.andr7e.deviceinfohw which seems (based on some screenshots) to have more detailed info. Commented Jul 25, 2022 at 12:14
