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.

 

Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S camera will have Xiaomi Mi 8 performance

Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S will improve its camera via software update

Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S will offer a camera experience on par with the Xiaomi Mi 8 through an upcoming firmware update. DxOMark last week gave the Mi 8 an overall score of 99, surpassing the scores of the iPhone X camera and matching the results of the Galaxy S9 +. Despite having a rear camera configuration identical to the last flagship of the Mi series, the Mi Mix 2S, on the other hand, received a general score of 97. The difference between both cameras, both in the video section and in the photography apparently is due to the software adjustments.

In a Weibo publication, from Xiaomi it was stated that the Mi Mix 2S will soon receive an update that will bring the camera firmware of the Xiaomi Mi 8 to improve the experience. The executive also compared the results of DxOMark of the Mi 8 with the iPhone X and Mi Mix 2S.

Xiaomi Mi Mix 2s 6+64GB black unlocked

The hardware that allows photography and videography in the Mi 8 is curiously the same that debuted in the Mi Mix 2S in March. It is presented as a vertical double rear camera configuration, comprising two 12 megapixel sensors with a pixel size of 1.4 microns. While one of the sensors has an aperture f / 1.8, wide-angle lens and four-axis OIS, the other comes with a telephony lens f / 2.4 aperture, along with optical zoom support.

On the software front, the default camera application in Mi Mix 2S has a scene recognition function based on artificial intelligence (AI) that is said to recognize up to 206 scenes. The application also has dynamic Bokeh, intelligent artifact, recognition of business cards and facial recognition. These features increase the scores of Mi Mix 2S photos in the DxOMark benchmarks to as high as 101, the same as the iPhone X. However, as the DxOMark people recently highlighted, the Mi 8 has some improvements over the Mi Mix 2S, including better performance in low light and an enhanced optical zoom experience.

All this has led to the Xiaomi Mi 8 as a superior offer to the Mi Mix 2S with a score of 105 and a score of 88 in video from the DxOMark team. In general, the leader of the DxOMark ranking Huawei P20 Pro received 114 score for the photo and 98 video score, while the second place has been captured so far by the HTC U12 + with 106 and 95 scores. On the contrary, the iPhone X occupies the sixth position with a photographic score of 101 and a score of 89 in video.

It is not clear when Xiaomi will bring the firmware of the Mi 8 camera to Mi Mix 2S. However, it is safe to assume that it must come through a wireless update (OTA).
