What Is Liquid Lens In Xiaomi Mi Mix Fold?

Mi Mix Fold Liquid Lens

Xiaomi is getting closer to the launch of Mi MIX FOLD equipped with Mi’s self-developed professional image sensor Surge C1 and the world’s first liquid lens, Mi MIX FOLD has attracted the continuous attention of many people in the industry and Mi Fans due to these new innovations.

So, many consumers are curious, what is the use of this liquid lens? How much improvement has been made to the imaging capabilities of mobile phones? Today, Xiaomi officially conducted related popular science on this liquid lens.

Many techs understand that the traditional solid lens has a problem that is difficult to solve so far. When the lens module is moved in a group to achieve macro imaging, the amount of travel movement increases, especially when the telephoto lens requires a large amount of movement for ultra-close-range imaging.

In order to ensure the thickness of the whole device, the current requirements for the size of the solid-state module and the limitation of the motor stroke design are difficult to achieve. At the same time, in addition to telephoto macro, macro shooting is generally realized by digital cropping and post-magnification, resulting in the disadvantages of low resolution and poor picture quality.

The design of the Xiaomi liquid lens greatly improves the magnification and image quality under the premise of ensuring the size of the module.

So how does the Xiaomi liquid lens achieve focus?

According to reports, the lens is based on the principle of bionics. A liquid component lens with fluidity like a human eye lens is added to a traditional solid lens. By squeezing the liquid lens, its optical power can be continuously changed, thereby achieving a continuous range from a long-range view to a close-range view. Focus.

Not only that, but the liquid lens also reduces the FOV change from the distant scene to the close scene. There is almost no breathing effect during the zooming process from the distant scene to the general close scene, which is more suitable for video shooting.

According to Xiaomi’s official statement, this is the first time that liquid lens technology has been applied to mobile phone cameras. It is a new breakthrough that Xiaomi MIX FOLD has made in macro shooting. It also opens up unlimited possibilities for Xiaomi to explore the world. We look forward to more models in the future with this technology.
