Chinese manufacturer Xiaomi is in the news again and this time, they are offering us something far different than a smartphone. It has been said that the company is planning on entering the camera segment with a new device similar to the GoPro-style action camera and will have a price tag of approximate Rs 10,000. A Chinese news website stated that the company is planning on integrating a 138-degree wide angel lenses with 4K video recording at 30fps. It also features Full-HD video recording at 120fps. The website also mentioned that the company might add in support for micro-SD card and will be expandable up to a whooping 128GB. As the company has made a firm base in the market, they are experimenting and trying to enter different markets. We might see Xiaomi’s GoPro-like action camera by the end of the year.
HTC has also tried out something similar and has launched their RE Camera which is equipped with a 16-megapixel sensor paired with 146-degree ultra-wide angle lens. The waterproof device is capable recording 1080p videos at 30fps. This has microSD support as well.
