Xiaomi has confirmed its association with German camera brand Leica. The smartphone maker has also announced that their first co-developed phone will arrive in July this year.
According to Xiaomi, the partnership with the legendary image and innovative technology, is a beginning to a new era of mobile photography in July.
Xiaomi took Twitter to make the announcement of its first partnership with a camera brand. While Leica has worked with Huawei, Sharp, and Panasonic previously.
According to Xiaomi CEO Lei Jun, the Company focuses on creating the ultimate user experience, and has always hoped to explore the capabilities of smartphone photography to the extreme. Both the companies have agreed with each other’s “pursuits and ideas” and their cooperation involves optical design as well as “tuning aesthetic orientations.
As it is with announcements like this, details are mostly not revealed initially. That means we are not sure if this partnership will have a greater impact on the making of Xiaomi’s next flagship or if it will be limited to a few camera filters, which we have seen before on other phones that use a camera brand’s logo on their bodies.
Xiaomi and @leica_camera have officially reached a global strategic partnership in mobile imaging.
