Could an expanded mode deliver more than just ridiculously smooth skin?
Xiaomi smartphones have made major strides in terms of camera capabilities, slowly closing the gap to top-flight competition. Now, a teardown of the Xiaomi MIUI camera app has potentially revealed a few details about future photography features.
The teardown, conducted by XDA-Developers, reveals that the company is working on an ultra wide angle mode. This is particularly noteworthy because the Chinese brand doesn’t have a phone with an ultra wide angle rear camera. If confirmed, this means Xiaomi joins LG, Huawei, and Samsung as four of the most prominent brands with the feature.
The outlet also found a few more ultra wide angle references, such as picture distortion correction and ultra wide bokeh shots. Speaking of bokeh, it seems like Xiaomi is finally implementing simulated aperture adjustments to tweak bokeh effects. This has long been a fixture on dual-camera phones from the likes of Huawei, Nokia and Samsung, so we’re glad to see the company seemingly catching up here.
The manufacturer is also working on a feature dubbed Live Shot or Dynamic Photos, according to XDA. It sounds like a take on Google’s Motion Photos, but the strange thing is that the app has separate references to Motion Photos as well. So we’ll probably need to wait a while to see what Xiaomi is actually doing with these features.
Another intriguing feature uncovered by the outlet is an expanded beauty mode, targeting more than just your face. In fact, this beauty mode contains references to shoulders, legs, and body. Beauty modes have become one of the most popular camera features today, but could an expanded mode deliver more than just ridiculously smooth skin? Well, I’m betting it’ll trim a few pounds off your frame.
