Xiaomi Tests Retractable Camera On Phones For Superb Portraits And Low-Light Shots

Xiaomi took to Twitter to show two new concepts, a retractable 120mm-equipvalent wide-aperture lens, and a 50mm-equivalent telemacro camera

Xiaomi has shown no sign of losing its interest in innovating phone cameras.

Earlier this year, it made public an under-display camera. Xiaomi is also the world’s first company to offer a smartphone with a 108MP snapper. One of its flagships - the Mi Mix 3 even has a camera hidden behind a sliding screen.

This time, the Chinese company is testing the limit of how much photography tech it can squeeze into the small body of a phone.

Xiaomi took to Twitter to show two new concepts, a retractable 120mm-equipvalent wide-aperture lens, and a 50mm-equivalent telemacro camera.

The video on Twitter shows a smartphone with a camera on the rear. The camera appears to be able to pop in and out at a very quick pace. It extends and retracts in less than a second.

According to the company, the lens’s inspiration was from the usual design of cameras and it has an enhanced stabilizer and bigger aperture. This means the camera is supposed to take better photos in low-light and portraits.

However, the Chinese phone maker didn’t make public any sample pictures or say when the new tech would make it to the market.

The company also posted another video showing how the telemacro lens works, allowing users to get brighter and sharper up-close shots.

The lens is actually a combination of a macro and a telephoto lens. With it, users can zoom very close to the subject and adjust the focus.

Again, Xiaomi says nothing about when we will see the cameras on real products. But with the company’s aggressive rate of innovating, we probably don’t have to wait for too long.
