Shot on a phone? Mi 14 Ultra’s zoom is next-level!

Amazing Camera Technology in Chinese Flagship Smartphones

Is this photo really taken with a phone? The excellent low-light performance and strong depth in the image suggest that the telephoto lens of Xiaomi 14 Ultra is truly exceptional! With two IMX858 telephoto lenses that have very wide apertures, especially the 5x telephoto lens at f/2.5, it almost never fails in low-light situations. Moreover, both telephoto lenses support macro photography, combined with the variable aperture LYT-900 main camera, basically making it a camera that can also make phone calls.

Of course, other Chinese flagship phones are also very impressive. For instance, at the beginning of the year, OPPO Find X7 Ultra launched with the LYT-900 one-inch sensor and dual periscope telephoto lenses. The hardware is top-notch, and the software features the new Ultra Imaging System developed in collaboration with Hasselblad, delivering portrait effects comparable to those of professional cameras. With the dual periscope telephoto lenses, the transition between mid-range and long-range shots is smoother, making it more suitable for daily use. Will other manufacturers follow suit in adopting dual periscope lenses, showing OPPO’s leadership in this aspect?

It’s worth mentioning that Find X7 Ultra is equipped with the powerful Andes AI model, featuring practical functions like AI noise reduction and AI call summaries. A recent internal communication from OPPO indicates that they are ushering in a new era of AI smartphones, emphasizing not only imaging capabilities but also AI technology.

Looking forward, we have the upcoming Huawei P70 series, the vivo X100 with a large camera setup, and the Honor Magic6 RSR with Porsche Design, featuring a 200-megapixel periscope lens and the domestically produced one-inch OV50K sensor, among others. It seems like the competition for the title of the camera king this year will be fierce! Which one are you looking forward to?
