My love for the Xiaomi brand is made up of ups and downs, but one thing I must recognize: in the last few months I have definitely appreciated the progress made by the Azianda regarding the improvement of the shooting and video quality of its smartphones, even entry level. And this confirms what you said Jun Jun some time ago, that is that the company would have dedicated an entire division of research and development of photographic performances, but adds in this days the CEO of Xiaomi, that the evolution has not yet stopped, rather in the 2019 we will see some good ones.
It is the Weibo social network that hosts Lei Jun's post, in which we see a sort of roadmap that Xiaomi will follow in the current year, revealing what will be the most important news in the photo sector by the company. The 0 evolution of the Super Night Scene mode stands out, debuted together with the Xiaomi Mi Mix 0, and which now also arrives on many other models, such as the Mi 3, the Mi Mix 8S and soon also coming to Mi 2 Lite and the very recent Redmi Note 8.
Lei Jun promises a lot of photographic quality for Xiaomi devices
The aforementioned mode of the photographic sector made in Xiaomi, wants to compete with the algortimi of Google's GCam, so far unbeatable and that has shown how the mere presence of a single sensor supported by an excellent software can make the difference, if not miracles . But Xiaomi with the various updates seems to always add that extra bit of quality and I'm sure it will soon reach very high levels. Another new feature we find relative to the support for slow motion video recording with 960 fps speed, although this will be dedicated to specific models, since rather high performance hardware is required for processing. Here, in my opinion, Xiaomi still has a lot of work to do, in fact I have not appreciated the qualitative result at all while the effect, that is the freezing of time, is really interesting.
So far nothing new here, except that the company is working to bring these improvements to other terminals that over time could gain new life and value after months / years after launch. Anyway it is with the launch of Xiaomi Mi 9 that we will see new features and net improvements and considering that there should not be much left to the debut of the new flagship, the hype has already skyrocketed in view of a probable presentation at the MWC2019.
