Xiaomi’s MIX series and VIVO’s NEX series are synonymous with full-screen smartphones. These two have always been on the lookout for innovations that would bring a true full-screen experience to their users. For now, the teams in these queues are working on their new fifth-generation phones. Today, a Weibo tipster talked about the camera features of the upcoming Xiaomi MIX 5 and VIVO Nex 5.
It turns out that both will have full-focus sensors on the outsole in terms of hardware and algorithms. In addition, these brands will cooperate with Leica and Zeiss. Finally, they are going to be good in terms of charge and endurance.
By the way, in recent years, smartphones from Huawei were able to reach the ceiling of mobile photography thanks to cooperation with Leica. Now, Xiaomi’s alliance with Leica can not only improve the photo effect, but also help the company stabilize the situation in the high-end smartphone segment.
Xiaomi MIX 5 Series Specifications
Xiaomiui has previously discovered that the Xiaomi MIX 5 Pro (L1) is on the road and will hit the market soon. The Xiaomi MIX 5 and MIX 5 Pro are already in the final stages of development. The corresponding trademarks have also been registered abroad. As for the Xiaomi MIX 5 Pro, it will come with the next-gen Surge C2 chip, unlike the basic Xiaomi MIX 5 (L1A).
According to the code linked to the camera, the MIX 5 Pro has the same “MIPISEL” character as the MIX FOLD and the unreleased MIX FLIP.
The previously released Surge C1 has a dual filter configuration, which can realize parallel processing of high and low frequency signals. In effect, the signal processing efficiency is increased by 100%. With the self-developed algorithm, the 3A (AF, AWB, AE) performance of the image is greatly improved.
Apart from that, the Xiaomi MIX 5 series models will sport the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 (SM8450) chip. The vanilla version uses a 50MP + 48MP + 48MP (0.5X, 1X, 5X) triple rear camera. It also supports 12x video zoom and 120x 2x photo zoom. The front camera has a resolution of 48MP (optionally using CUP technology). Below the screen, it should use a new generation of in-screen fingerprint technology. At the same time, the Pro variant is expected to come with a periscope telephoto lens and support 100x zoom. It will use a large 100 watt fast charging battery.
Previously, the same source said that the standard L2 version of the Xiaomi MIX 5 went into production in November last year. Also, mass production of the high-end L1A and L1 versions will begin later.
