Redmi had announced to reveal some products on Monday. Well, as promised they teased their 64MP smartphone camera sample, hinting at a future release. If you’d recall, Samsung and Realme have also intimated their upcoming 64MP camera phones.
Both the announcement as well as the camera sample are shared via Weibo social media website. The post calls this their official entry into the era of 64 million pixels!
In the image, we see the picture of a cat with its eye area zoomed to show the sharp details. This boasts the camera prowess which we could expect out of the forthcoming Redmi smartphone. That’s it. The company hasn’t spilled any other details so far.
Redmi Note 7 Pro (review) had struck the chords with fans and there is a definite hype around the recently launched Redmi K20 Pro (review), both of which wield a 48MP camera. We guess the new 64MP shooter to surface in Redmi Note 8 Pro, Mi Mix 4 or even a new series altogether.
64MP sensor features
As far as the inherent tech is concerned, it would be Samsung ISOCELL Bright GW1 sensor. It generates bright 16MP images using pixel binning for poorly-lit environments and the full 64MP res images under favorable lighting. It is expected to feature better noise reduction, color accuracy, and phase-detection autofocus. Finally, you could capture full HD clips also at 480 frames per second (fps).
Smartphone cameras are swiftly closing their gap to the DSLR output. Besides the computational treatment, the hardware components like sensors and lens are transcending with time. Lately, 48MP sensors for the rear camera and 32MP for the front camera is the burgeoning trend. Since almost every other phones are employing this, few brands are aiming for bigger sensors to differentiate themselves. So after Samsung and Realme, Redmi is the new one to follow this suite. While all of them claim to launch first, only time will show us the victor.
