Xiaomi establishing dedicated camera team

Many smartphones use camera hard and software components that are provided by third-party suppliers, but those components can only get you to a certain point. If manufacturers want to squeeze the maximum image quality out these third-party camera systems, an in-house camera team is indispensable.

It appears Chinese manufacturer Xiaomi has just come to this realization. A leaked internal email from CEO Lei Jun shares details about the creation of an in-house camera department.

With most important smartphone components, such as displays and chipsets being largely indistinguishable between devices, the camera remains the major differentiator in an ultra-competitive market. The new team at Xiaomi should be able to improve camera performance noticeably compared to existing devices.

This is good news, especially when considering the company's latest dual-cam model Mi Mix 2S is already doing very well in the camera department, scoring 97 points overall and 101 for Photo performance at DxOMark.

But now, researchers with the University of Washington in Seattle have developed a solution to that problem, one that involves offloading the processing burden to a nearby smartphone in order to stream high-definition content from the wearable camera.
