Photo of the first phone Xiaomi and Meitu with a triple folding camera

Last year, Xiaomi and Meitu entered into a partnership agreement under which Xiaomi will produce

and sell devices under the Meitu brand likeyourself at home in China and abroad. Xiaomi will also receive a global license to use Meitu technologies and domain names. Some time ago, a teaser photo appeared on the Internet, which most likely depicts the first smartphone developed jointly by these two companies. And he has one interesting detail.

The first smartphone Meitu

The photo shows the first Meitu brand phone witha flip-up camera that clearly reminds us of the similar camera on the ASUS Zenfone 6 / ASUS 6z. However, unlike ASUS, the camera module here is slightly larger, as it includes three lenses at once. If we talk about the design, it is a cross between the Huawei Mate 20 Pro and the ASUS Zenfone 6. The device features a pink gradient, curved edges and pink buttons. Who is the target market — I think it’s already clear.

Unfortunately, no technical details anddetails about the characteristics of the camera yet, but probably this camera will include a 48 MP sensor. We are almost sure that this novelty will get exciting opportunities for a selfie-camera, and, maybe, will even become a telephone-king in terms of front camera capabilities.

The text in the photo is translated as "Mate" and"Little Fairy." This is not the first time that the name "Little Fairy" is mentioned. The Weibo post, previously published by Lin Bin from Xiaomi, also mentions this name.

We do not know when exactly this device will be launched to the masses, but we are definitely interested in this new product.
