One of its primary elements in a smartphone is the camera. This selling element makes people want and buy these mobile devices. Today, a mobile camera is about hardware and algorithms that can enhance the rate of the picture. And it is all about performance, the same processor that can process information quickly and efficiently.
A good camera in a smartphone can only exist in conjunction and well-coordinated work with an image processing processor (ISP). That is why companies have rushed to create their proprietary solutions. Own ISP is a trend that will flourish in 2022. Among those who are at its origins is Xiaomi. Last year, it introduced the Surge C1 image processor in the Xiaomi Mi Mix Fold, which enhances low-light image quality, improves autofocus, white balance, and exposure.
The Xiaomi Mix 5 Pro will offer advanced imaging techniques, receiving the proprietary ISP Surge C2. Information about it was found in the firmware code by experts of Xiaomi. They argue that the proprietary image processor will only be a proprietary chip, while the Xiaomi Mix 5 will not receive it.
Rumors have been circulating on the network for a long time that Xiaomi is working fast on the Xiaomi Mix 5, which will be released this spring and not alone, but alongside the Xiaomi Mix 5 Pro. There are even suggestions that the manufacturer has abandoned the release of the Xiaomi 12 Ultra in favor of the new experimental Mix series. Whether this is true or not, we will find out in February or March next year because some believe that Xiaomi 12 Ultra will still be released, and it will happen closer to the end of the last winter month.
