Xiaomi will bring 60FPS video recording to the Mi 8, Super Night Scene to the Mi 8 SE
Xiaomi has been focusing on camera prowess since the past few generations of their flagships. Their work in this area is starting to bear fruit, as their recent smartphones have been receiving positive reviews for their camera performance. While the company is still some ways away from being the “best” in this department, they have reached a position where the end consumer is happy with the results.
To spread some more joy, Xiaomi has also been working on bringing features launched on newer phones to earlier phones. Features like Super Night Scene, launched with the Xiaomi Mi Mix 3, have been promised for devices like the Redmi Note 7, while phones like the POCO F1 have already received updates that allow for Super Night Scene as well as 4K 60fps video recording. Now, the company is making similar promises for the Xiaomi Mi 8 and the Xiaomi Mi 8 SE.
In a Weibo post, Xiaomi has stated that the company is working on bringing 60fps video recording to the Mi 8. The company has an internal target of delivering this feature through an OTA update within 2 months. Similarly, the Mi 8 SE is expected to receive an OTA that will bring Super Night Scene to the device, with the update expected to arrive by the end of February.
While the Mi 8 and the Mi 8 SE have not caught as much global attention as Xiaomi would have hoped, they are still excellent value devices for what they promise to deliver. Bringing newer features to devices launched earlier is a good way of building reputation and goodwill, as it showcases that the company does care about existing products and does not merely move on to the next product after every launch. This should help set Xiaomi apart from the rest of the competition that exists in China by adding a certain sense of longevity to their product portfolio.
