Xiaomi and Leica could greatly expand their cooperation, at least as shown by a new concept from the Chinese smartphone maker. A video concept shows that the camera area of the flagship smartphone could have a mount for the real camera lens.
There are comparable concepts, for example the Samsung Galaxy Camera:
The concept is not fundamentally new. Many years ago there were various attempts to attach real cameras to smartphones. But all ideas, for example the Galaxy camera from Samsung, then failed miserably. Will Xiaomi ever make the concept available to consumers?
Xiaomi relies on two camera sensors. One is quite simply integrated as a smartphone camera, the other for Leica lenses. Here, however, protection is necessary so that the sensor is not damaged without the installed lens. Exciting idea that will surely be very expensive.
