Chinese phone maker Xiaomi earlier this month announced a new mid-range camera-centric series for the young users. It includes two new smartphones – the Xiaomi CC9, the CC9e, and the Xiaomi CC9 Meitu custom edition. The series supports Xiaomi’s adaptation of Apple’s Animoji – called Mimoji. There is also the unique sky replacement feature which allows users to change the sky in a photo from a range of presets to make it more appealing and ‘Instagram-worthy’.
While the feature was until now exclusive to the CC9 series, the Redmi K20 and Redmi K20 Pro from Spin-off Redmi are both now receiving the feature via OTA update.
Redmi General Manager Lu Weibing who broke the news of the update says the users can access the feature via the Gallery app. Then tapping on the photo that you want to change the sky, click “Edit” – select the filter and choose the sky effects you want.
