    Randomly came across this article, about this PRC cell phone company .. apparently they just launched a new flagship phone with looks like Nokia Lumia !!!

    but what really caught my eyes were that, apparently the camera is from SONY is able to shoot in RAW?

    Xiaomi unveils new Android-powered 5-inch MI3, 47-inch smart TV in China

    The Mi3 also gets a 13 megapixel main camera which is surprisingly made by Sony as per Xiaomi. The camera can supposedly capture images in RAW!

    there are a few questions which I will ask fellow WP users,

    1) Is Sony / Xiaomi the "first phone company" to ever make a RAW CAMERA and in build into a cell phone ? if not, which company ? - does anyone know?/

    2) Does Nokia / MS have any future plans on making RAW function into future PUREVIEW phones?

    3) my humble guess is that Nokia 1020 will still win Xiaomi 13MP RAW CAMERA, but how much will this "RAW Function" actually help in the final pic?


    If you understand Chinese you can enjoy the youtube video below, or if anyone can find a english verison / subtitle, that would be great!

    RAW will be a huge file and saving will take longer, RAW ? unless you plan to use an editor that can process RAW then why ?
