Every vendor is now focusing more and more on AI technology. As you know, we need a dual camera to capture some stunning pictures using Portrait mode. This shot gives us some excellent portrait shots with bokeh effect. But every Xiaomi smartphone is not having a Dual camera & there are a lot of Xiaomi devices having a single camera. Now, Due to AI Powered MIUI 10 they can also shoot some portrait photos. This is possible due to Xiaomi’s new AI Based Capturing technology built in new MIUI 10 OS.
