Xiaomi's future flagship phones may come with Leica-branded cameras

A Xiaomi and Leica partnership could be in the works according to tipster Kacper Skrzypek.

The tipster discovered references to Leica within the Chinese MIUI Gallery Editor app which are related to vlog filters. Monochrome, natural and vivid options are specifically mentioned in these references. Since the references are found within the Gallery Editor app, it is unclear at the moment if the partnership would extend to the camera hardware. 

Huawei has been working closely with Leica since 2016 for its flagship phones. Leica contributed its expertise gathered from decades of experiences in optical engineering and optical design while working on the camera module for Huawei's flagship phones.

Three other Chinese phone makers have announced partnerships with camera brands. Vivo's flagship phones come with Zeiss camera lenses while OnePlus and Oppo collaborate with Hasselblad to co-develop camera technology for their respective phone models.
