2 million macro lens (f / 2.4 aperture, 2-10cm macro);

2 million fine depth of field lens (f / 2.4 aperture).

The 108MP main lens of Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro is upgraded with an 8P lens, and the ultra-wide-angle lens is changed to 20 million pixels (f / 2.2 aperture, 117 ° ultra-wide angle).

At the same time, the 2 million macro lens and 2 million depth of field lens were replaced by 8 million telephoto lenses (supporting 10x hybrid optical zoom, OIS optical image stabilization, 1.0 μm, f / 2.0 aperture), 12 million portrait lenses (2x optical Zoom, 1.4-micron large pixels, 2PD dual-core focus, f / 2.0 aperture).
