Realme is all set to introduce the new 64-megapixel camera technology in India today.

Realme will be launching Realme 5 and Realme 5 Pro in India on August 20, sources familiar with the development said to The Mobile Indian. Realme 5 and 5 Pro will be successors of the Realme 3 and 3 Pro which were launched in India earlier this year.


Notably, this time the company is skipping number 4 and jumping straight to 5 as the number 4 is considered an unlucky number in Chinese culture. Even OnePlus famously skipped 4 and straight up moved to 5.


Details of the upcoming smartphones are still scarce, but we know that Realme 5 Pro smartphone will come with 64-megapixel camera while the camera details for the Realme 5 are unknown at the moment. Realme is all set to introduce the new 64-megapixel camera technology in India today. The company will introduce 64-megapixel primary lens and it is expected to add a wide-angle lens, one telephoto lens, and one depth sensor. 



Realme is said to use Samsung's ISOCELL Bright GW1 sensor. Samsung GW1 image sensor will be larger than that of the current line of 48MP sensors and will use Pixel-merging Tetracell technology to merge 16MP images into one thus providing a 64MP shot. While a standard 48MP camera bins pixel snaps that compare to a 12MP 1.6-micron pixel camera, the 64MP GW1 sensor will bring pixel binning equivalent to a 16MP 1.6-micron pixel shot.

If you are a follower of Madhav Sheth on Twitter, you must have noticed that he likes to change his name by adding a smartphone-related term after Madhav. Sheth changed his Twitter name to Madhav X, ahead of the Realme X launch in India. And now this time, he has changed his name to Madhav '5' Quad, where the term Quad relates to the quad-camera technology while the '5' hints at Realme 5 or Realme 5 Pro. 


Meanwhile, the company has confirmed that it will be announcing 64-megapixel quad-camera smartphone in China on 15 August. It means we can expect that Realme will be launching Realme 5 Pro in China on August 15 and after that it will be launched in India.
