At present, there are two powerful devices in terms of zoom capability, Huawei P30 Pro and OPPO Reno 10x Zoom. Both of these devices use the telescope camera in-the-way they can achieve optical zoom capabilities in smaller camera hardware. Now, Xiaomi is also expected to include this capability on their device, through a patent shown to the web arena.
The patent is registered under “Camera Components and Electronic Devices”, which was registered on 20 December 2018. It was publicly displayed on July 2, bringing the registration number “CN201822150093.2”.
What is interesting about this patent, it shows the imaging technique to use, which is to include at least one auxiliary lens on the main sensor. It states that these lenses will be arranged in a position like a periscope to save the camera placement space.
Not yet known where the upcoming smartphone Xiaomi will use this new camera technology. However, it is estimated that Xiaomi will use this in the MI MIX series considering it is the most expensive series from Xiaomi. This is just an estimate and the technology can appear on several other devices. But, it is possible that MI MIX 4 will use a periscope lens.
