    Does the camera support raw as the Google translated site would indicate it does?

    The sensor seems to be the same Sony one that is in the qx10 that was announced last week although the mpx size is different.

    Looks like raw sort is coming according to Engadget.

    A hand-on from a HK magazine:​
    "Focus speed is great. Although dynamic range is poor and cannot capture details in a backlit condition, the photo is sharp with no apparent noise."

    Are you able to share the name of the magazine as it would be great to see a full translated version of the review if available online?

    It's from e-zone issue 787. I can translate the whole review tomorrow since it's 1am now. :)

    This is only a hands-on from the IFA so the device might be different after release!

    1. Design
    The MI3 is reminiscent of the Nokia Lumia. Although it is longer (compared to MI2 and GS4), it feels very light (thanks to its thickness and weight which are only 8.1mm and 145g respectively). The build quality is great. The phone is very comfortable to hold.

    2. Display (sharpness)
    On GS4 the feather appears sharper, while it is smoother on the MI3. GS4 wins the test.

    3. Display (colour)
    In theory, IPS panel has a better colour accuracy and is better in reproducing a more natural image than an AMOLED panel. However in our test the MI3 screen has a yellow and cyan tint, and it is a little bit overexposed. Fortunately viewing the display is still quite comfortable.

    4. Video
    Both MI3 and GS4 loaded the 1080p video within a second. They are both very fast in skipping (scrubbing?) videos, thanks to their 2GB RAM and powerful CPU. Sound from speakers of both phones are loud, clear and solid.

    5. Performance
    In real world Antutu benchmark test, the score of MI3 did not reach the level claimed by the manufacturer, but it still performed better than the GS4. On another note, the MI3 crashed multiple times while running the Vellamo benchmark. The issue should be fixed before the release.

    6. Camera
    Focus speed is great. Although dynamic range is poor and cannot capture details in a backlit condition, the photo is sharp with no apparent noise.
