A new report suggests that Xiaomi is said to be working on a new phone that is said to feature a whopping 64MP sensor. The report notes that the MIUI camera app confirms the Xiaomi phone with a 64MP camera.
New Xiaomi 64MP camera phone in the works
As per the report, a reference for a 64MP “ultra-pixel” mode was spotted in the MIUI Camera app. This was in the latest MIUI 10 (ver. 9.6.17) China Developer ROM for the Redmi K20 Pro. Additionally, the strings cited by the developer also correspond to a default text, “64MP DUAL CAMERA,” for the watermark on images. So far, the only 64MP sensor in the market is the Samsung 64MP ISOCELL Bright GW1 sensor. As such, it is believed that the smartphone in question will make use of this sensor.
For those of you unaware, the Samsung 64MP ISOCELL Bright GW1 sensor also makes use of pixel binning technology. As a result, the 64MP shots are condensed into 16MP shots while preserving details and enhancing low-light capabilities. What’s more, is that Samsung’s sensor supports up to 100dB of real-time HDR. As a result, we should see a high dynamic range and contrast in images. That said, users will still have the ability to take 64MP pictures in the Pro mode.
Xiaomi or Redmi?
As suggested by renowned leakster IceUniverse, the smartphone in question could be coming from the house of Redmi. In fact, he also noted that the alleged Redmi smartphone will be the first device in China to come with this sensor. Apart from Redmi, we may also get to see the upcoming Samsung Galaxy A70s sport the same sensor.
