Light, the company behind Nokia 9 PureView‘s penta-camera, has announced a partnership with Xiaomi to develop better imaging solutions for smartphones. Light has stated that Xiaomi will be incorporating Light’s imaging technology in its smartphones and consumers can expect multi-camera smartphones from Xiaomi with “DSLR-level capabilities.” No specific details about Xiaomi smartphones with Light integration are known at this point.
“Xiaomi is one of the most innovative smartphone device manufacturers with an incredible pedigree, and we’re excited to enter this partnership with them,” said Dave Grannan, CEO, and co-founder, Light in a statement. “Light’s computational imaging is forever changing the way our devices see the world, and we look forward to applying our pioneering multi-camera technology and empowering their devices with the imaging solutions of the future.”
Light is an American company that was found in 2013. The company first made relevance with the launch of its L16 camera back in 2016. Light L16 incorporated 16 tiny cameras in one compact device. The company states on its website that it can help smartphone manufacturers bring “DSLR-level image quality” to their smartphones.
“Light’s camera array is unlike anything on the market, capturing an unprecedented amount of data in a scene and more information about every pixel. Smartphone sensors are often limited by size and the amount of light they can capture. We capture 10x the amount of data about each individual pixel, which can start to rival and surpass many dedicated cameras,” the company wrote on its website.
The official press-release announcing Light-Xiaomi partnership did not contain many details, so its not exactly known the kind of smartphone that would be debuting as a result of their partnership. Xiaomi is expected to reveal some information over the coming months.
