The liquid lens technology is finally coming with Xiaomi Mi Mix. Xiaomi could change smartphone camera games forever. They literally compare this liquid lens to an actual human eye.
Previously the mi mix series launched in 2018 was a big hit in the smartphone industry because of its camera design. And now after launching the Mi Note 10 Series and Redmi Note 10 Pro series with 108 megapixels plus ultra-wide, telephoto, and macro lens in the midrange segment in addition to 120 Hz refresh rate and an AMOLED screen, Xiaomi has become popular across the globe which will be bad news for its competitors.
According to Xiaomi, The optical structure of this lens is identical to an actual human eye which is typically different than other traditional optics in smartphone cameras instead we have a liquid surface covered by a firm. The traditional smartphone cameras have just a tiny lens beneath the glass, with high-end cameras having EIS and OIS.
But… In this human eye liquid lens, there’s some sort of mechanism that includes a motor that changes the movement of the liquid and allows the lens to change the focal length seamlessly like a DSLR.
This is the first smartphone lens that can be a telephoto lens and a macro lens at the same time. Because of its two-in-one function, it will change the whole game of smartphone cameras i.e how smartphone zoom camera works.
The size of this lens is also said to be smaller than the traditional zoom optic lens that we see in the smartphone, in addition to a small size, Xiaomi says that they are using the human eye bionic principle with this liquid lens which means it’s going to have ridiculously fast focusing speed almost like a human eye.
Apart from Xiaomi Huawei is also working on liquid lens technology. It might actually debut on the Huawei P50 series. Huawei P Series is considered as their flagship series which includes their top quality cameras and microprocessors and a premium design. But at this time there’s no official news from Huawei.

On the same day, Xiaomi will also make history by announcing a smartphone with the world’s largest smartphone sensor which is made by the sensor. 120X ULTRA PIXEL AI CAMERA! Xiaomi is going to change this whole smartphone market in the upcoming years. Now it’s time for other companies to do something crazy to attract consumers.
