The cameras of future Xiaomi smartphones could receive a huge improvement in quality and versatility. The company today presented a new telescopic lens for cameras intended for smartphones, with a large aperture.
According to the insider Digital Chat Station and a post on Xiaomi’s Weibo social network, the telescopic lens features a super-wide aperture capable of increasing light input by 300% , along with a new image stabilization technology. According to reports, clarity also benefits from a 20% improvement , again thanks to the wide lens aperture and image stabilization technology.
However, the company has not yet specified the focal value of the lens in question, so it is not currently possible to know when the aperture is actually large. What is interesting, however, is the fact that you can have an optical zoom through the physical telescopicity of the lens .
In the Xiaomi video uploaded to Weibo, the lens is shown protruding from the phone’s body like a classic digital camera zoom lens. This allows for physical movement in and out of the case, just like on the Samsung Galaxy K Zoom. However, the company has not yet specified a zoom range, so there is no idea of ??the magnification capacity.
Most modern mid to high-end smartphones are equipped with fixed telephoto lenses that cannot physically adjust the zoom length. Xiaomi’s goal to potentially solve this problem and also allow more options for users . This could also lead the company to propose smartphones with a single lens in the back .
Thanks to the large aperture, a large sensor, an optical and physically telescopic zoom together with adequate software, it is possible to take advantage of an excellent rather bad photographic sector, without the need for additional sensors .
It is not clear when when this interesting telescopic camera, presented by Xiaomi, will make its debut on a future smartphone to be launched in global markets. However, if the company turns out to be able, and so it seems, to be able to bring this solution to the market, it could already mortgage a position of reference for cameras on smartphones.
