Since Xiaomi has recently been using a couple of different camera models, some people are wondering how to tell if they have a Sony or Samsung camera in their phone.

In this post I will tell you how to check if your phone’s camera is Sony or Samsung. This should work with any mobile that has Sony or Samsung, but this method was specifically tested with Xiaomi mobiles.

Requirements

  • Rooted mobile
  • Terminal emulator (download any terminal emulator from Play

What to do

  • Reboot your phone
  • Open the terminal emulator and enter the following code

su
dmesg | grep -i imx

It’s that easy. Assuming you have a Sony camera, you will get a return message something like this

imx258 probe succeeded

This would confirm you have the Sony IMX258 camera in your Xiaomi mobile. Likewise, if you had Sony IMX214, it would return “IMX214”.
