Xiaomi made a surprise announcement on March 29, as it prepares to launch its next-generation flagships, the Mi 11 Pro and the Mi 11 Ultra. Under its new plan, the company will also unveil its smartphone, The Mi Mix, next week.
The nickname Mi Mix, as it is known, is usually reserved for Xiaomi’s more experimental smartphones. An example is Mi Mix Alpha.
Xiaomi is embarking on a new path with an experimental liquid lens.
It is not known at this time what the new Mi Mix will look like as a result of the announcement. But Xiaomi CEO Lei Jun announced on Weibo that the Mi Mix will be the first smartphone to come with a liquid lens camera.
According to Jun, Xiaomi’s self-developed liquid lens will be able to control the shape of the liquid spherical surface through an engine to achieve “precise and fast focus. At the same time, the lens will be able to resist high light permeability, ultra-low dispersion and extreme environments.”
In practical terms, it is thought that such a lens can act as both a macro and a telephoto lens, depending on the state of use.
According to Android Central, the Mi Mix will most likely be a foldable smartphone and will be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 processor, just like the Xiaomi Mi 11 series. Finally, although it is almost certain that the Mi Mix will be a powerful phone, let’s note that there is no information about other features.
