Aiming to work better on camera technology, Chinese handset maker Xiaomi has registered a research and development company in Tampere, Finland, the media reported.

It also decided to tap into Finnish camera expertise by founding a new company in Finland or more precisely, two companies, Xiaomi Finland Oy and Xiaomi Technology Finland Oy, tech portal nokiamob.net reported on Friday.

Notably, the Finnish town of Tampere houses have some of the world’s best camera experts.

The handset maker’s new business activities in Tampere would focus on product development, however, it would initially start with camera technologies.

“Xiaomi follows the steps of Huawei and is finding Finland as an attractive source of skilled labour. Huawei became a new home to lots of former Nokia experts and after partnering with Leica, Huawei devices now have a reputation of being the best or among the best camera phones on the market. Xiaomi is probably hoping to achieve the same thing,” the nokiamob.net report added.

In September 2016, Chinese tech titan, Huawei opened a research and development facility in Tampere.

South Korean tech giant Samsung is reportedly planning to introduce 8K video recording support to its upcoming smartphone Galaxy S11.

A new code in the APK file (the Android app software file) for Samsung’s camera app suggests that Galaxy S11 lineup would support 8K video recording, XDA Developers reported on Sunday.

The Exynos 990 chipset, which is expected to power the international variants of the device, features 8K@30fps video decoding/encoding capabilities.

Additionally, Qualcomm’s upcoming Snapdragon 865 chip, which will power the US variants of the S11, is also expected to have enough horsepower to offer 8K video recording.

Earlier, famed leakster Ice Universe had claimed that the Galaxy S11 would not use the 108MP ISOCELL Bright HMX sensor that it launched earlier this year, but would instead utilise an upgraded second-generation sensor.

Opting for a second-generation version of Samsung’s 108MP lens would also make sense, since the original version has on a Xiaomi handset first, so it won’t be a totally new thing by the time the Samsung Galaxy S11 launches.

The upcoming Samsung Galaxy S11 smartphone will be available in three screen sizes – 6.4 or 6.2-inch being the smallest, mid-sized with 6.4-inch and 6.7-inch being the largest one.

Evan Blass also claimed that there would be five variants in total that all sport curved-edge displays.

As per a recent report, Galaxy S11 would arrive in the third week of February 2020 and the launch event is said to take place in San Francisco. (IANS)
