Xiaomi launch wide angle and macro lens for Xiaomi Mi2 and Mi2S

Although the Xiaomi Mi3 launch is just a few day’s away, Xiaomi haven’t forgot about their current flagship phone and today have launched new lens for the rear camera.

The lens kit consists of both a wide angle lens and a macro lens for close up photography. The detachable lens come in a rubber case and attach to the Xiaomi Mi2 or Xiaomi Mi2S via magnets which fasten to the steel ring around the rear camera.

It is interesting to see that Xiaomi have launched this lens kit as it could indicate a shift towards camera and lens technology in future devices. Could the Xiaomi Mi3 feature new lens hardware like the Oppo N1?

Back to the lens kit here, it is available in China through the official Xiaomi store for just 59 Yuan ($9) and I might try to pick one up to give is a test.
