The Xiaomi Mi 8 Explorer is receiving a new version of MIUI OS 10, which brings two fairly major camera improvements. The new ROM – MIUI V10.1.2.0.PEHCNFI – is based on Android 9 Pie and is currently rolling out in China. It’s a 2.1GB update.

The first major change is the addition of of 960 fps video mode. Previously, the phone topped out at 240 fps.

The second addition is called Super Night Scene. It takes 8 photos at different exposures and merges them into one brighter, higher-quality shot.

The Super Night Scene feature was introduced to the Xiaomi Mi 8 and Mi Mix 2S with MIUI 10.8.11.8 in early November and they got the 960fps mode about a week after that. Both features made their debut on Xiaomi’s latest flagship, the Mi Mix 3, of course.
