Realme is all set to introduce the new 64-megapixel camera technology in India on August 08, 2019. Now, just ahead of the official launch, company’s CEO Madhav Sheth has revealed that the upcoming smartphone might be named as Realme 5.
Madhav Sheth has quietly changed his name on his Twitter handle to Madhav ‘5’ Quad. The number hints that the upcoming smartphone might be named as Realme 5, while others believe it might be known as Realme 5 Pro. Interestingly, the company is skipping number 4 as it is considered unlucky in Chinese culture. Furthermore, the Quad hints that the upcoming smartphone will be loaded with four cameras at the back panel, which was recently teased by the company.
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.
Meanwhile, the company has confirmed that it will be announcing 64-megapixel quad-camera smartphone in China on 15 August. Realme has shared a new poster on Chinese microblogging website Weibo which has confirmed that the phone will go official 15 August. The China event is scheduled to commence at 2:00 PM local time.
