Huawei has been providing Light Painting for its smartphones for many years, since the Huawei P8 was introduced in 2015. Currently, it seems that Xiaomi is “paying attention” to and want to combine it with Google’s Astrophotography (astrophotography) mode to create a new feature of its own.

Specifically, developers of the XDA-Developers forum have dissected the Camera app in the latest MIUI 12 beta ROM and discovered that Xiaomi is developing a new photography mode, called ” Long Exposure “(roughly translated as” Long Exposure “).
With a long exposure time, users can easily take photos with Light Painting (light painting), Star Trails (running stars), Moving Clouds (moving clouds), Silky Water (water). flows) and the crowd moves around a stationary object.

This feature is similar to Huawei’s Light Painting mode that we mentioned above. However, Xiaomi seems to be trying to combine it with Google’s astrophotography mode to expand the imaging capabilities of its smartphones.
The code in the MIUI 12 Camera app also mentions the options “Magic Star” and “Starry Sky” (starry sky), which requires users to be in areas with low light. Moreover, you also need to attach the phone to a tripod to take long exposure photos.

Xiaomi will not be the first brand after Google to equip Astrophotography mode (astrophotography) for its smartphones, because the recently launched Realme X3 SuperZoom also features this feature.
However, no matter what, it must be acknowledged that smartphone manufacturers are trying hard to bring users the most advanced photography features – which you could hardly before. It works on smartphones.
