Xiaomi’s former partner Xiaoyi, now known as Yi has officially launched its latest 4K+ Action camera in China. The Yi 4K+ Action Camera was unveiled at CES 2017, and today it was officially launched.
The Yi 4K+ Action camera is said to be the world’s first camera capable of capturing 4K video at 60 frames per second. The Yi 4K+ Action Camera is also the first to feature an Ambarella H2 System-on-Chip processor which offers a maximum bit rate of 120Mbps and improvements in power consumption.
This Action camera packs a Sony IMX377 12MP image sensor, 7 glass lens and a 2.2-inch retina touchscreen display at the back. It features electronic image stabilization (EIS), live streaming capability, also filters audio output in outdoors and supports Virtual Reality (VR).
The Yi 4K+ Action camera also comes with USB 3.0, USB Type-C interface and other features like 3-axis gyroscope, accelerometer. The camera also packs a 1400mAh battery which can last up to 71 minutes when shooting at 60FPS and if the quality is reduced to 30FPS the battery can last up to 109 minutes of continuous shooting. Yi promises that firmware update will soon bring in voice command on the smart camera.
One more feature to note is that the Yi 4K+ Action Camera and the previous gen 4K Action camera all have the same size and design.
