Question Bought two 256gb units - Got different cameras and sensors

Search This thread
Hi folks.

I bought two devices of the new 256/8 version - both with exact same firmware and model codes.
After unpacking them and running HW Info on both, I realized that:
- One came with s5khm2_i_samsung (f1.9)
- The other came with s5khm2_ii_samsung f(1.89) - higher angle of view.

Also, I understood that the accelerometer/gyro are different in both devices.
- The first device includes includes a lsm6dso (STMicro supplier) with a power of 0.24+0.55 mA
- The second device includes icm42605 (TDK supplier) with a power of 0.24+0.57 mA.

The first device counts with 31 sensors and the second device counts with 32 (includes xiaomi free fall - apparently a disk damage prevention from falls, activated from the accelerometer)

The question is:
1) how to fully understand how different are the photographic capabilities of the main lens among the two devices?
2) can I expect relevantly higher power consumption from the TDK accelerometer/gyro?
Extra point - even though the screen panels are the same (from Samsung - code 38), the first device has a bit of a more reddish tint, less contrast but higher brightness, while the second device looks a bit dimmer but reveals better contrast.

Your inputs are greatly appreciated. Cheers! :)

From what I know, there isn't a 256GB version of the Redmi Note 10 Pro at all.
Well, I also just ordered the 256GB 8GB version. And I can't find any info about it, it's not mentioned anywhere in official specs.

I hope I won't have any problems with custom roms.

It's a new version, 8/256 Gb with product code MZB0DF9EU.
I bought two units at Mediamarkt Spain for 239€ each. It can be seen in physical and online shops across Europe already - I've seen in Germany and Portugal too.
The production date is 10.2022.
The reason why Xiaomi stayed silent is perhaps the fact that this 256Gb would cannibalize the sales of the newer Redmi Note 11 Pro, which besides the inferior processor, only includes a maximum of 128 Gb and has a more expensive retail price.

Damn, that's a good price, mine cost me 274€.

Does Dolby Atmos work? I've seen some reports it got broken in MIUI13.

Even for 274€ is a great purchase. At 239€ really seemed a steal for the specs. Aren't you using it already?

Dolby Atmos is working perfectly on this MIUI 13.0.15. It is a lovely addition, making the sound richer and louder on the speakers.
And I can add that both speakers and 3.5mm jack sound louder than my Poco F2 Pro and X3 Pro.

It won't stay on MIUI much longer, as I applied for bootloader unlock straightaway. The 256gb version should not be a problem with custom ROMs. Will let you know if it is otherwise.

Enjoy your device :)

Mine was shipped this morning, thanks for the Dolby info.

I was actually looking for something up to 500€, was really disappointed there's nothing special in that range (battery wise). Was considering 12 Lite, but I don't like new releases, you never know how good will the community support end.

There are so many of these phone versions and names, mi, not mi, T, S, NE, pro, not pro, pro +..., 128GB, 64GB, 256GB, RAM 6GB, 8 GB, 12GB,... I doubt they even know what to put on their webpage. Some big guy at Xiaomi was reading this tread, that's why it got updated.

Cheers, mate.
Good to see you here as well. I see two boxes there. :) Did you also buy 2 units?
I opened a poll under the General folder, so we can keep track of the sensor mix from now on -> Sensor Lottery Poll
 
Yes, bought 2 in case if one dies, good to buy now before they disappear from stores. =)
Haha super. Exact same thinking here.
Got these two bad boys. Just seemed like the best value for money and better combo of large internal memory + SD expansion + big battery + nice AMOLED + cameras not too bad + FM Radio + 3.5mm jack.
Bought a 512gb SD card to go in it.
Now waiting for sunday to unlock the bootloader. Can't wait :)
So far, impressions are great and the device feels way more expensive than it costs. Hoping you guys enjoy it too. :)

Hello, any custom rom you could recommend for 8/256 variant? any problems you encounter installing recovery, roms etc..?

    Also shot two photos with the devices.
    Maybe my eyes are failing, but can't see major differences, except perhaps that the shot on device 2 seems a bit more saturated.
    Am I correct?
