Xiaomi will give the camera the importance it deserves in 2019. With DeepExposure they unveiled their secret weapon to conquer the HDR next year. Google and Apple tighten, even Samsung is preparing its night mode, and it seems that Xiaomi does not want to be further forward, the Xiaomi Mi 8 will be updated to improve its camera.
The processor Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 of which it has allows a processing capabilities very similar to those of its main rivals, so Xiaomi has activated by software two functions that we had seen in the best high-end phones, and that will make the Xiaomi Mi 8 camera a rather more powerful tool.
Night mode and 960FPS for the Xiaomi Mi 8
With the update to Android Pie two new functions have reached the Xiaomi Mi 8. On the one hand we have the new night mode, whose operation is very similar to what we have seen in Google alternatives. Through AI, a series of photographs are combined in order to obtain a better final result, thanks to the individual exposure of each of the sub-images. This will allow the Xiaomi Mi 8 to take brighter pictures with less noise when the night is closed, one of the points that are improving most in the high range of this year.
The Xiaomi Mi 8 is located, at the level of functions, at the height of the high-end of 2018. It remains to be seen if the quality of the same manages to rival its direct competitors.
On the other hand, the Xiaomi Mi 8 will be able to record videos with a rate of frames per second of up to 960 – it is unknown whether in Full HD or HD – some numbers that we can not see even in terminals such as Google Pixel 3 or the iPhone XS. An update that apart from improving the software of the system comes so that the camera is up to its rivals, something that only time will be able to reveal.
