A well-known insider has published on his Twitter page the estimated technical characteristics of the mysterious new product Xiaomi. The information that two new devices were certified at once, appeared in the network earlier. The novelty makes its debut in two modifications – classic and lightweight. Experts assume that the Chinese manufacturer opens a new line, which will embody all the advantages of Meitu smartphones.
This morning, the Chinese manufacturer officially confirmed the existence of the project to create the first smartphone Xiaomi, which will use software and hardware innovations from Meitu. The format of the announcement surprised users with its originality. It was presented as a wedding vow. Xiaomi’s executives explain this unusual choice by the fact that the launch of the new product will become a new chapter in the history of both brands.
The code name of the novelty is “Little Fairy.” The name fully confirms the concept of the device. Xiaomi Meitu will become an exclusive women’s smartphone. This model will have several distinctive features. First, the developers will implement an intuitive and simple control system. Secondly, the device will get a powerful camera, and will also support advanced photo editors, which were previously included in the list of pre-installed programs on Meitu smartphones. Artificial Intelligence-based applications will be used for efficient photo processing.
A little background. Last November, Xiaomi bought the rights to use Meitu hardware and software algorithms. The exclusive license mainly covers the use of photo processing technologies. The right to use the brand name was also obtained. Foreign media are confident that the first women’s smartphone based on Meitu algorithms will be Xiaomi CC9. Today, the first photos of this device appeared in the TENAA database.
