MIUI developers are constantly improving the layer to make it more competitive and to the taste of the users. Updated applications, greater customization, new font or improvements to the Always-On screen, these are some of the novelties that MIUI 11 brings. And soon there will be three additions to the camera application, Xiaomi is developing them.
The MIUI camera application is very complete and capable of not only taking good photos automatically but also manually. However, there is always room for improvement, as they have discovered in the development versions of MIUI 11: the camera has included 3 new options that are on the way to seeing the light in a stable way. The improvements especially concern the optimization of space and the capture of all types of documents.
As XDA Developers details, the “nightlies” or trial versions of MIUI 11 bring three improvements to the camera application that integrate Xiaomi phones. These improvements are:
The capture of documents and identification cards
Photographing a receipt to have it in file format is a function that many users on their phone, so Xiaomi has decided to incorporate it as standard in the camera. The so-called “Document mode” allows you to scan all types of papers by applying contrast and removing color to improve visibility. And it is also valid for identity documents: the new camera combines both sides of the document to create a digital copy.
Support for HEIF / HEIC multimedia formats
Most brands have been introducing support for optimized multimedia formats, something that Xiaomi will do shortly. The so-called high-efficiency format allows reducing the space occupied by images without sacrificing quality, something that results in the optimization of the storage available on the phone.
This function, at the moment in tests, allows adding a label to the videos so that they can be easily located from the MIUI 11 gallery application.
Since the camera improvements are found in the nightlies of MIUI 11, it will still take time to see them in the stable system version since they must first go through the beta; It will only be available in China. For now, we will be satisfied that MIUI 11 is deployed as planned and that Android 10 is also reaching the largest number of Xiaomi phones possible.
