Realme has confirmed that it’s now working on the world’s first smartphone camera with 64MP Samsung GW1 sensor and this phone will debut first in India in the fourth quarter of 2019.
Realme CEO Madhav Sheth took to Twitter to announce its new premium killer which will come with the Samsung GW1 64MP with 1/1.72 sensor and 1.6µm pixel. Sheth revealed that the upcoming Realme premium killer will be able to capture improved lowlight shots.
Sheth further added that Realme will launch their upcoming premium killer with a 64MP camera first in India before the rest of the world. He also shared an image taken from the unnamed phone, the watermark on which days “64MP AI Quad Camera”. Sheth has also revealed, in a reply to a user that, the Realme premium killer phone will be unveiled by Q4 2019.
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.
Like it says on the shared image, the upcoming Realme phone will come with three more sensors alongside the primary 64MP lens. This will thus be the first Realme phone with a quad-camera setup and we can expect Realme to add an ultra-wide camera, telephoto lens and a depth sensor to its new premium killer phone.
We hope to know more about the Realme’s premium killer smartphone with 64MP Quad Camera soon.
