Xiaomi is Working on 5x optical zoom camera

Two weeks ago we saw news that Xiaomi is working on a phone capable of recording 8K video at 30fps. Now with the first MIUI 11 beta out, the folks over at XDA Devlopers have discovered a refresh rate toggle in the display settings which comes with a 120 Hz option.

This confirms that Xiaomi is indeed working on a phone with the high refresh rate which up until now has only be featured on gaming phones like the two Razer Phones and the Asus ROG Phone II.
In addition to the high refresh rate screen, it seems Xiaomi will also offer improved telephoto sensors on its upcoming devices. The camera app menu in MIUI 11 has revealed support for a new telephoto sensor with 5x optical zoom. In addition to that, there is an ultra-telephoto mode that will offer up to 50x digital zoom.
As of now, there is no indication that the same phone which will offer 8K video recording at 30fps will also come with the new telephoto camera and 120Hz refresh rate screen. We’re expecting Xiaomi to give out some official clues in the meantime.
