Xiaomi, Realme to ditch Sony for Samsung's 64MP sensor

Redmi 7A is now available from offline stores in India more expensive than online

Recently, the brand has launched the Redmi K20 and Redmi K20 Pro, which are not only some of the best-looking phones in the market right but also pack impressive specifications.

According to the company, the GW1 sensor uses ISOCELL Plus technology to create a pixel-to-pixel barrier to reduce light interference between pixels and consequently improve colour reproduction. Hopefully, this won't be the case even if Xiaomi does decide to go with Samsung's 108MP camera unit. Its bestselling smartphone series, the Redmi Note 7, employs Sony's popular 48MP IMX586 sensor.

Chinese manufacturer Xiaomi is reported to be working on a 100MP (or 108MP) camera sensor. "We are very pleased that picture resolutions previously available only in a few top-tier DSLR cameras can now be designed into smartphones", said Lin Bin, co-founder and president of Xiaomi.

While the tipster does mention that the Mi MIX 4 could be the first to adopt this technology, we don't have a date as to when to expect the phone to arrive. If you thought that 64MP is the future of smartphone photography, you might want to reconsider that.

This is Samsung and Xiaomi's 2nd major collaboration related with developing camera sensors. The company has confirmed that the Redmi 64MP camera phone will launch in India in Q4 2019. The "Future of Camera" is definitely bright.

Manu Jain, global vice-president at Xiaomi and managing director at Xiaomi India said, "We have these people who are young, passionate, and they are typically considered as tech geeks or people who know about technology".

Chinese publication ITHome reports that Redmi General Manager, Lu Weibing, in response to a Weibo post confirmed that the Redmi Note 8 is indeed in development and that it will be more powerful than the competition.
