Xiaomi, Sam­sung to un­veil smart­phones ca­pa­ble of pro­duc­ing ul­tra-clear pho­tos

Fiji Sun - - China News - Xinhua

Bei­jing: Chi­nese tech firm Xiaomi an­nounced on Wed­nes­day that it will roll out smart­phones fea­tur­ing 64-megapix­els (MP) cam­era tech­nol­ogy via a partnershi­p with Sam­sung Elec­tron­ics.

The 64-MP cam­era, ca­pa­ble of pro­duc­ing ul­tra-clear pho­tos, will be first adopted in one of the up­com­ing smart­phones from Redmi, an in­de­pen­dent brand un­der the Xiaomi Cor­po­ra­tion, ac­cord­ing to Xiaomi co-founder and pres­i­dent Lin Bin.

The two par­ties will also un­veil smart­phones with the first-of-it­skind 100MP cam­era sen­sor, fea­tur­ing the high­est pixel count and res­o­lu­tion on the mar­ket. Smart­phones with such sen­sors can pro­duce pho­tos with a res­o­lu­tion of 12032 x 9024 pix­els. Xiaomi has been in­vest­ing in im­prov­ing its smart­phone cam­era func­tions in re­cent years.

It set up a depart­ment ded­i­cated to imag­ing tech­nol­ogy in 2018, with of­fices cov­er­ing do­mes­tic and over­seas cities in­clud­ing Shang­hai, Shen­zhen, Tokyo and Paris to con­duct re­lated re­search and de­vel­op­ment.

Pow­er­ful cam­era func­tions have be­come one of the key bat­tle­fields among Chi­nese smart­phone mak­ers, as the do­mes­tic cell­phone mar­ket growth slows down. China’s smart­phone ship­ments dropped 5.4 per cent in the first half of this year, and fell 6.1 per cent in the sec­ond quar­ter, data from global mar­ket re­search firm In­ter­na­tional Data Cor­po­ra­tion showed.
