When it comes to camera technology in smartphones, it has been one of the major USPs for any smartphone in the market. Most of the smartphone manufacturers have been focusing a lot on the camera sensor and have been increasing the standards every year. This time, it is Xiaomi, who is working on a new camera lens that can capture 300% more light and click 20% sharper images. When it comes to smartphones manufactured by Xiaomi, the camera isn’t their best feature.
What the smartphones are popular for, is the value for money hardware configuration that they provide. But the only part lacking in their smartphones was the camera sensor. With the launch of a 108MP camera sensor in their smartphone this year and 120x digital zoom, the company made a mark that it will be improving on the camera aspect from now on. Now it seems that the company is apparently taking the next steps in smartphone camera technology by creating a new camera lens.
The details were shared by Digital Chat Station on Weibo, where it states that the new lenses would have a super large aperture and will also have the new stabilizing tech for better images. There are no details on the aperture or other details, but it could be used to get a much better picture in dark lighting scenarios. The video posted by Xioami shows the lens popping out of the phone like a point and shoot camera. For now, it is uncertain as to when the camera tech will be visible in Xiaomi’s phone, but the prototype does promise a great future for smartphone cameras.
