Xiaomi Announces New Telescopic Lens
With an announcement, Xiaomi hinted that single-camera phones may return. Xiaomi‘s telescopic lens has a pop-up mechanism like a real camera. No matter how advanced smartphone cameras are, they are far from manufacturing like professional cameras due to “technical” constraints such as sensor size and lens aperture. Xiaomi has announced a telescopic lens for smartphones which will be able to avoid these technical limitations.
The telescopic lens announced according to the statements made by the Chinese technology giant; It manages to increase the light coming to the sensor by 300 percent and the clarity by 20 percent. But, it is difficult to guess exactly what the lens will offer, as Xiaomi does not disclose the aperture of the lens from the f value. However, it is an inevitable fact that it receives more light than a standard smartphone camera lens.
Recently, the telephoto lens has become indispensable, especially in the high-end segment. However, since smartphones do not have a movable lens mechanism, they cannot provide users with the opportunity to manually zoom in/out. Xiaomi‘s new telescopic lens, on the other hand, is able to offer manual optical zooming, as it has a mechanism that opens out like a real camera.
