Xiaomi’s new product will cooperate with the world-renowned image manufacturer Leica, the news must have seen a lot of this time. With the release time getting closer and closer, the official preheating about the machine is also more intensive.
Now there is the latest news, recently Xiaomi’s official microblogging released a long article, called “ride the light, reveal Xiaomi optical innovation”, a detailed introduction to Xiaomi’s development in imaging over the years, but also in the warm-up for the upcoming new flagship. The official said:
Faced with the inherent physical limitations compared to professional cameras, how cell phone optical innovation can exchange space for performance and show optical effects close to those of cameras between square inches is becoming an innovative high point that the entire cell phone industry is competing for, and the optical innovation of Chinese brands is drawing increasing attention.
In February 2019, Xiaomi 9 Transparent Supreme Edition pioneered the 7P lens with the largest aperture of F1.47, supporting ultra-wide-angle and macro shooting, opening up a new vision of cell phone photography.
