Chinese smartphone manufacturer Xiaomi recently launched its K series smartphones in India with Remi K20 and Redmi K20 Pro. Both the smartphones feature a triple rear camera setup that consists of 48MP Sony IMX586 sensors. After launching the 48MP camera smartphone, the company is now reported to be planning to launch a new device that will feature a 64MP camera.
Today, Xiaomi has teased an image on its official Weibo account that hints at the arrival of the world’s first 64MPcamera smartphone. This will leave behind the present 48MP camera devices across the world. The leaked image shows the camera sample that reads Redmi’s first 64UU megapixel photo. While teasing the development of the 64MP camera, the picture also says that the mobile phone winds into the 64 million era.
The new upcoming smartphone by Xiaomi is speculated to feature a 64MP ISOCELL Bright GW1 camera sensor. A few months back in May this year, Samsung also revealed that its upcoming device will sport a 64MP sensor. The 64MP ISOCELL Bright GW1 camera sensor comes with 0.8 microns of pixel size that is claimed to capture 16MP resolution images under low-light conditions. These images will be clicked using Samsung’s Tetracell technology which is capable to merge four pixels into one.
However, until now, the company has not confirmed whether Samsung’s ISOCELL Bright GW1 sensor will be used to support the device or not. Samsung announced the ISOCELL Bright GW1 sensor earlier this year. As per a report that surfaced on the web, Xiaomi will be using Samsung‘s ISOCELL Bright GW1 sensor in its upcoming smartphone. The pre-installed MIUI camera app also hinted that the subsistence of the 64MP camera sensor in the Xiaomi’s devices. Along with that, the MIUI camera app also gave an indication of an “ultra-pixel” mode that has an ability to engage with the large megapixel count.
As we mentioned earlier, Redmi is not the only smartphone company to be working on a 64MP camera smartphone. Samsung is also speculated to introduce the 64MP camera sensor in its upcoming Galaxy A-series smartphones. Oppo is also in the queue to reveal its 64MP camera handset that will be powered by Samsung’s ISOCELL GW1 sensor. Oppo is planning to launch the handset at the end of 2019. Realme India CEO, Madhav Seth also flaunted a 64MP camera sample, so a device with the sensor is expected from the company too.
