Xiaomi partners with Light to develop multi-camera smartphones

Light got into the mobile business with HMD – the Nokia 9 PureView camera is its first – but this is not an exclusive partnership. Xiaomi and Light will be developing smartphone cameras based on computational photography too.

This is just the beginning of their collaboration, so it will be a while before a multi-camera Xiaomi with the Light image processor pops up.

The two companies didn’t give away anything about future designs, but the phone will likely use Sony sensors and feature 4+ cameras – a few days ago Light partnered with Sony to use IMX sensors in upcoming multi-camera setups.
