In the Weibo post, Fujifilm’s official account in China is said to have congratulated Xiaomi after it had just launched the Mi CC9 Pro.
In the article, Fujifilm recorded the content “100 million pixels: Welcome new members”, to allude to the Mi CC9 Pro is the first smartphone in the world equipped with 108MP resolution sensor. Illustrative for this article is the model image of its Fujifilm GFX 100, which also uses a 102MP sensor.
The article is posted on Fujifilm’s official Weibo page
However, some Weibo users have noticed this unusual feature in the photo posted by Fujifilm. Specifically, a rectangular frame has a very small size, with outstanding colors located in the lower left corner inside the sensor section of the Fujifilm GFX 100 camera.
Many technology users have argued, this mysterious rectangular frame is actually the 108MP sensor of Mi CC9 Pro. Accordingly, Fujifilm has intentionally integrated the sensor of this newly launched smartphone inside the sensor of the GFX 100 to compare the size difference.

As the first smartphone in the world to feature a 108 ‘dot’ camera, Mi CC9 Pro uses a sensor manufactured by Samsung called ISOCELL Bright HMX. At 1 / 1.33 inch, this is also the largest camera sensor on the current smartphone market. However, the 108MP sensor on the Mi CC9 Pro is still ‘underage’ to compare with the Fujifilm GFX 100’s Medium Format 102MP sensor both in size and quality of photos.
According to Digitalcameraworld, the real message of Fujifilm implicitly sent to the Chinese phone company will be “Welcome to the 100MP club, but don’t forget what the 100MP sensor really looks like”.
Worth mentioning, the company itself does not hide its story of ‘coffee’ Xiaomi. Just below the article, Fujifilm’s official account even commented, it is “encouraging Xiaomi to bring innovation to mobile phones”.

Interestingly enough, Fujifilm is also actually involved in the development of ISOCELL Bright HMX sensor technology built into Xiaomi phones. In July this year, Fujifilm and Samsung announced their cooperation in developing the second generation of the sensor, which is expected to be available on the Galaxy S11 and many other smartphone models.
Notably, Fujifilm’s article also received mixed reactions from technology users. One user commented, “Fujifilm has a little bit of pain in Xiaomi this time,” referring to Xiaomi’s advertisement being a bit more than an over 108MP sensor. However, another user said that the comparison between sensors equipped on smartphones and professional cameras is too lame and not worth making fun of such.
