“Xiaomi and Leica’s strategic partnership aims to bring advanced camera capabilities to smartphones and push the limits of what is technologically possible in the smartphone camera module segment. Leica provides its expertise in optical engineering, design, imaging software, and consumer experience to the partnership to help Xiaomi achieve the best possible imaging results. With the rise of smartphone camera quality, the partnership opens up new revenue streams for users who are exploring or creating content for platforms like YouTube and social media. Xiaomi is closely monitoring the market to cater to the evolving needs of smartphone cameras and plans to integrate the best cameras into its upcoming phones,” the company said in a joint statement.
