Xiaomi and light, a computing imagery company, The Mobile World Congress announced that both companies will work together to develop new smartphone modules. Both companies pledged that the developed cameras had the main features of DSLR capabilities, but they were not expected to be the first product of a project.
Light is specialized in image-based imaging solutions for many camera arrays. The company has developed a chip that can work with 6, 12 or 18 camera arrays. And while Xiaomi and Light do not determine how many camera array are being developed, we may find something on the bottom of these numbers, probably because of the limited size of their smartphones. For reference, the 6-module camera would be very similar to what Nokia's Nokia PureView did.
Light has a personalized ASIC chip that focuses on controlling all the camera modules independently, opening the exposure level, calculating the white balance, etc. With camera modules taking pictures, ASIC unites together the "RAW" color and lighting / shading information. After this second part, ASIC's RAW & # 39; transfers the image to a process process using two MIPI transmitters.
Based on a press release released by Light and Xiaomi, the two companies do not merge, but there are numerous mobile imaging solutions. So, we're expecting a light spectacle from the Xiaomi smartphone's Light Technology.
