Xiaomi-backed Redmi is working on to launch a new smartphone featuring a 64-megapixel camera. The company has now teased the smartphone by sharing a camera sample of the same device having a 64-megapixel camera.
The camera sample with the 64MP camera Redmi phone has been posted on the Chinese microblogging site, Weibo. The image shows a cat sitting and the photo is zoomed to show crisp details around the eye of cat. With this, the company is emphasising on the number of details captured by the 64MP camera phone from Redmi. Meanwhile, Manu Kumar Jain has also teased the 64MP camera smartphone on Twitter.
The new Redmi phone is expected to come with 64-megapixel ISOCELL Bright GW1 sensor that Samsung unveiled back in May, however the company has not confirmed whether it will use Samsung’s ISOCELL Bright GW1 sensor or not.
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 in a low light environment 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.
It is to be noted that this is not the first time we are seeing the camera sample from the 64 MP camera sensor. Earlier Realme CEO Madhav Sheth also shared some camera samples shot by the 64MP sensor smartphone. Realme will unveil its smartphone with Samsung’s 64-megapixel ISOCELL GW1 sensor later this year. Apart from Redmi and Realme, Samsung is also said to be working on a 64MP smartphone which is said to be launched later this year. If this Redmi smartphone is announced before these brands, then it will be the world’s first 64MP camera smartphone.
At the moment, the specs of the upcoming Redmi phone are scarce. But we expect the company to reveal more information ahead of the official announcement. Keep a tab on this space for more updates on this.
