The photographic sector of the new Xiaomi flagship, the Mi 9, seems to be in the eye of the storm in recent days. After not making a great impression on our Alessandro (read more in this post) and several online reviewers, the camera of Mi 9 faces another hiccup, this time in the production chain.
To bring out the news was the founder of Xiaomi in person, Lei Jun, who on the Weibo social network announced the existence of some production problems with the aforementioned smartphone, particularly in the photographic sector.
Xiaomi Mi 9: The camera from 48MP slows down the production process
Lei Jun states that putting together the Sony IMX586 sensor from 48MP and the lens is a fairly complicated process that takes longer than usual. This means that the creation of the camera component actually slows down the production process of the entire device.
To solve the problem and speed up production, the Xiaomi president even said that "if Xiaomi fails to produce more than one million units in the first month, I will personally go to the factory to screw the screws".
Joking aside, Lei Jun had already moved to solve the perennial problem of lack of stock, entrusting part of the work to BYD, a major Chinese company that deals with the production of smartphones, portable tablets, smart locks, TV boxes, electronic cigarettes and so on. BYD has the second largest factory in the world for the production of smartphones and is one of the best companies to turn to immediately after Foxconn.
Furthermore, it would appear that BYD has already produced the first Xiaomi Mi 9 game ahead of schedule. So, after all, we shouldn't have to wait long before we can get our hands on our next flagship, if you're interested in buying, of course.
