Smartphone manufacturer Xiaomi has shared a teaser on its YouTube page confirming its forthcoming Mi Mix smartphone will feature a liquid lens — the first of its kind in a smartphone — that’s capable of changing focus and focal length by altering the shape of the liquid element.
According to Xiaomi’s pair (1, 2)Weibo posts, the liquid lens will enable a single camera module on its upcoming smartphone to effectively replace multiple camera modules by offering everything from macro to telephoto capabilities. Liquid lenses aren’t necessarily new, but they aren’t necessarily common in the consumer space — until now.
