Mi Mix Liquid Lens
On March 25, the official Weibo of Xiaomi mobile phones continued to warm up the new products of the spring conference on the 29th. Today is even more important, and Xiaomi MIX is finally about to release new products.
Just now, Xiaomi cell phone official Weibo officially announced the Mi Mix lens configuration, Xiaomi cell phone issued a text that said, “Liquid lens, the world premiere of the new generation of Xiaomi MIX! This is a magical innovation, like a cell phone lens into the “human eye lens”. The flowable liquid is wrapped in a thin film, replacing the traditional optical lens to achieve the change of focal length and focus. In this way, a lens can be microscopic near and telephoto far.”
What is Liquid Lens?
Liquid lens, as the name suggests is the use of the characteristics of water, we all know that the water droplets on the lotus leaf are convex, a drop of water into the lotus leaf is not spread out, will only come together to form a convex lens, there is a magnification function.
In the phone, this so-called lotus leaf is glass, is a special glass, then “water” is what? Is a conductive material, to the conductive material plus different voltage, can be achieved zoom, that is, the rounded curvature can be changed by voltage so that the zoom effect is quite good.
Also do not forget that the phone CMOS is not flat, is three-dimensional. It is like a container, that if by some means, so that the surrounding glass into non-lotus leaf-like, is not the middle concave, around the convex out, which is a concave lens.
So, by changing the smoothness and roughness of the special glass, as well as the change of voltage, you can make the whole lens concave and convex, the concave is concave, the convex is convex. This gives a better zoom and a wider ultra-wide angle. That is to say, only one lens, near-microscopic, far telephoto.
How does Mi Mix Liquid Lens work?
According to reports, the liquid lens uses the bionic principle of the human eye, using a lens-like structure instead of traditional optical lenses. The transparent fluid wrapped by a film, driven by a motor with high precision, can precisely and finely change the shape of the spherical surface through Xiaomi’s research technology, thus achieving swift and smooth fast focusing.
This optical fluid also has the characteristics of high light transmission, ultra-low dispersion, and excellent resistance to extreme environments, which can ensure stable and long-lasting good optical characteristics performance.
The biggest advantage of the liquid lens is that it realizes the coexistence of macro and telephoto, which is another revolutionary breakthrough in the development of cell phone imaging.
Mi Mix Liquid Lens Advantages
- Smaller size: the liquid lens can quickly determine the focal point by the fine shape change after the force, which can significantly reduce the thickness of the telephoto macro function module.
- Faster focusing: due to the use of the human eye bionic principle, liquid lens deformation speed is much faster than the mechanical control of the traditional optical lens, and therefore can significantly improve the focusing speed.
Mi Mix Liquid Lens Official Introduction
Liquid lens MIX world’s first “human eye shape” future camera.
When the first camera appeared, it was learning how to look at the world in human clothes. Today, we use bionic photography to make a human eye shape. Cameras will be installed in mobile phones in the future. Mi MIX, the world’s first mobile phone liquid lens.
Biomimetic photography adjusts the liquid lens like a human eye fret, using the principle of human eye bionics, and uses a faux-like structure instead of traditional optical lenses. The transparent fluid under the film package is driven by the precision of the motor and through the self-developed technology of Xiaomi, the spherical shape can be changed accurately and finely, to achieve fast, smooth, and fast focusing. This optical fluid also has the characteristics of high light transmittance, ultra-low dispersion, and excellent resistance to extreme environments, which can ensure stable and long-lasting good optical performance.
The liquid lens allows the coexistence of macro and telephoto.
The innovative liquid lens realizes the coexistence of macro and telephoto. This is another revolutionary breakthrough in the development of mobile phone imaging. It is smaller in size: the fine shape of the liquid lens changes after being forced. Quickly determine the focus, which can greatly reduce the thickness of the telephoto macro function module. Faster focusing: Due to the use of the human eye bionic principle, the deformation speed of the liquid lens is much faster than the mechanical control of the traditional optical lens, so the focusing speed can be greatly improved. The birth of each generation of MIX is accompanied by breakthroughs in cutting-edge technology, and the new liquid lens technology is bound to become the future development direction of mobile phone imaging.
