Xiaomi smartphones are not only affordable, but also try to bring various innovations. In recent years, cameras in particular, which have long been criticized by Xiaomi, have undergone a radical change.
And Xiaomi is now coming up with more camera enhancements. It patented a new photographic technology.
Periscope camera also in Xiaomi
The latest patent from the Chinese State Intellectual Property Office, filed on July 2 / July, speaks of a periscope camera from Xiaomi. The periscope camera for smartphones is nothing new. It is currently included in the Oppo Reno 10x zoom model and also the Huawei P30 Pro.
The Xiaomi patent describes a combination of a main camera with at least one complementary periscope lens that will be placed perpendicular to the main lens. Thanks to the light refraction process, the periscope lens will be able to achieve different zooms without increasing the size of the primary camera and the dimensions of the device.
The result is significant lossless zoom with optical image stabilization. The current sensors in Huawei and Oppo reach a focal length of 125 mm and 135 mm, so we can expect that the design of the lens from Xiaomi will be in the same range.
Premiere in Mi MIX 4?
Immediately after the publication of the new patent from Xiaomi, speculation appeared on the Internet in which smartphone the new technology could be used. It is rumored that it will be the Xiaomi Mi MIX 4, which will receive a periscope camera for the first time.
The first renderings of what such a photographic "setup" in the Mi MIX 4 could look like have already appeared on the Twitter social network. These are unofficial renderings from a fan, so they should be taken with a grain of salt.
