Xiaomi Penta, 5 cameras in a phone.

Xiaomi insinuates telephone with five cameras

Once again Xiaomi wanted to surprise us, because this time, through the product manager of the company, shared on the social network Weibo a photo that is giving us something to talk about. It is a photo that shows other smartphones of the brand, made by an unknown phone, and accompanied by a good watermark, say, intriguing, and that has unleashed a multitude of rumors about its provenance.

Xiaomi Penta

We do not know what they mean by Penta, we know many other things, for example we know that the AI of the photo is synonymous with artificial intelligence, and the part representing penta remains a mystery, remains as something that comes accompanied by five elements, as an achievement reached the fifth time more or less, in this case, the fifth in a series of smartphone devices.

The logo is quite direct when mentioning the camera, then we understand that the smartphone that made the photo has five cameras or then some resource that involves software based on AI has five intelligent functions or image processing, or the same is only the fifth edition of some of its devices, the same is simply the number of beers that the marketing director drank yesterday, but the advertising campaign is working.

Five-camera phones

Although it might seem it wouldn’t be strange if Xiaomi was preparing a model with five cameras in the back, especially after the confirmation that Nokia will launch Nokia PureView 9 with the same amount of lenses during the MWC in Barcelona, so Xiaomi wouldn’t be the first.

In the case of Xiaomi, which sometimes launches several products in a single month, it’s very hard to imagine what the mysterious device would be like, if we’re talking about the Xiaomi Mi 9, the new Xiaomi Note 7 or who knows if a new device, which I’m going to call Penta.

There is one last detail that has made the rumors go even further. The most curious thing is that the publication was erased by the executive after the repercussion in the press about the possibility of that future Xiaomi Penta, five cameras, whatever it is, soon we will know.
