Light has announced it has partnered with Chinese smartphone maker Xiaomi to Create imaging solutions for smartphones.
Lighting is an imaging technology company that was recently in news on its participation in the penta-lens camera set up on the Nokia 9 PureView. Light has stated that Xiaomi will be incorporating the organization’s computational imaging technologies in its own smartphones and the consumers can anticipate multi-camera smartphones from Xiaomi using”DSLR-level capabilities.” No details about any Xiaomi apparatus with Light technology are known at this point.
“Xiaomi is one of the most advanced smartphone device makers with an incredible pedigree, and we’re eager to go into this partnership together,” said Dave Grannan, CEO and co-founder, Light in an announcement. “Light’s computational power is forever altering the way our devices see the Earth, and we look forward to applying our pioneering multi-camera technologies and empowering their devices with the imaging services of their future”
Lighting is an American firm that was set back in 2013. The company first found prominence after the launching of its L16 camera back (pictured above) in 2016. Light L16 comprised 16 miniature cameras in one compact device. In accordance with the company site, Light will help smartphone makers deliver”DSLR-level image quality” to their smartphones.
“Light’s camera selection is similar to anything available on the market, shooting an unprecedented amount of information in a scene and also much more information about every pixel. Smartphone sensors are usually limited by size and the quantity of light they can catch. We capture 10x the number of information about each individual pixel, which may start to rival and surpass many dedicated cameras,” the company wrote on its own site.
As the official media release announcing the Light-Xiaomi partnership was light on details, we do not know exactly what type of smartphone innovation we can anticipate from both companies. Hopefully, Xiaomi will discuss something concrete within the coming months.
