Xiaomi Redmi Phone With 64MP Camera Sensor Arriving in Q4 2019

The company confirmed that the smartphone will be released as a part of Redmi sub-brand and will be using Samsung's ISOCELL Bright GW1 sensor.

Xiaomi on Wednesday shared more details about its upcoming 64-megapixel camera phone. It should come to India first and will likely be the Redmi Note 8. The Chinese company also revealed there will soon be 108MP camera sensors in smartphones as well.

The GW1 sensor comes with smart ISO feature which is supported by Dual Conversion Gain (DCG) technology. With a 64 MP image, ISO noise can really wreck an image in low light situations.

It wouldn't be surprising if the Redmi Note 8 has the new sensor since Samsung also announced its new GW1 sensor that can capture a 64-megapixel resolution. It is expected to sport a 64MP primary Samsung ISOCELL sensor. By default, the sensor has a pixel size of 0.8-micron but with its Tetracell technology, it has a 4-in-1 pixel binning that increases the effective pixel size to 1.6-micron. Images captured with this new camera have a resolution of 9248 x 6936, and the size of each photo can reach a whopping 19MB, effectively enabling users to print 2.44m x 3.26m posters at 72dpi, if they wish to do so. 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.

During the Xiaomi Future Image Technology Communication conference in Beijing, China earlier today.

Towards the end of the event, Xiaomi also dropped a hint of a possible 108 MP sensor on an upcoming Mi smartphone, according to XDA Developers.
