Having an 8 megapixel rear camera on a smartphone is normal nowadays but having an 8 megapixel front camera is something else. A Chinese company called Mito Xiu Xiu is reportedly set to release the world’s first smartphone with an 8 megapixel front camera. The device which is called MeituKiss will be using Sony’s latest back illuminated lens and a Fujitsu image processor with an aperture of F / 2.2 making it comparable to most professional SLR cameras.
As of the moment only the details of the MeituKiss front camera have been revealed and while it isn’t official yet it’s already impressive. The only photo leaked so far is that of the packaging of the device with a pink and white theme. The outer box shows the brand logo on a white background.
Sources also point out that the developers are optimizing the camera on a hardware level rather than relying on application level optimization. This makes the device take better photos.
A photo detailing the development of the device also shows that it is already 76% complete which means that we should be seeing a working preview of the device pretty soon. It is reported that a press conference regarding the device will be held this coming May 16.
Here are some of the rumored specs of this device which is leaked on the web.
- Internal model name DOOV D1
- Android 4.2
- MTK MT6589 quad-core processor
- 1GB RAM
- qHD level display with 960 x 540 resolution
- supports light, gravity and distance, acceleration sensor
The use of a MediaTek MT6589 processor provides the device with 50% more power compared to an ARM Cortex A8 processor and is also five times more power efficient when compared to an ARM Cortex A7 single core processor.
The F /2.2 aperture of this device makes it take in more light thus reducing blurriness and makes you snap photos quickly.
While the front camera of this device is impressive enough we do hope that the company will even surpass this with their rear camera.
We will keep you posted on further updates on this upcoming model as news comes in.
