Realme launched Realme 5 and Realme 5 Pro smartphones in India today. Along with these phones, Realme has also announced much-awaited smartphone bearing 64MP quad-camera setup in the event. The smartphone with a 64MP quad-camera phone will be called the Realme XT and will be launched in the month of September.
The company has also shown the glimpse of Realme XT’s back panel. As per the image, the upcoming smartphone has a similar camera positioning as Realme 5 series. Further, looking at the image, the smartphone would have an in-display fingerprint sensor.
The smartphone will be using recently released 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 4-in-1 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.
As per Samsung, “GW1 is equipped with a Dual Conversion Gain (DCG) that converts the received light into an electric signal according to the illumination of the environment. This allows the sensor to optimize its full well capacity (FWC), utilizing the collected light more efficiently especially in bright environments”.
Apart from Realme, Redmi is expected to launch the Redmi Note 8 series with the 64-megapixel camera soon. Samsung is also reportedly working on adding up its own ISOCELL Bright GW1 64MP sensor in one of the smartphones under its A-series and company has also announced the world’s first next-generation 108 megapixels ISOCELL Bright HMX smartphone camera sensor in partnership with Xiaomi. Xiaomi has even confirmed that they will be using 108MP camera sensor (made by Samsung) in its future smartphones.
