Redmi teases its upcoming smartphone with 64MP camera; shares picture resolution and more

Redmi has released a new teaser for its upcoming smartphone, which reveals a 64MP camera and a few details of the resolution and size of the images captured from it. It is also revealed that the smartphone will feature a quad-camera setup, in which the 64MP is the primary lens. Redmi took to Weibo to tease the device and also revealed that the smartphone is going to be launched soon in China.

The teaser came a day after Redmi shared an image taken by a 64MP camera that highlights the clarity of the picture. It also vaunted the negligible loss in details of the picture while zooming. The pictures captured with the 64MP lens of the unnamed Xiaomi smartphone were up to 20MB in size. The company claims that the quality of the picture produced with this camera will even exceed the resolution of an 8K TV, making it the first smartphone to produce images with such an ultra-high resolution. Rumors suggest that the 64MP camera sensor could be featured on the upcoming Redmi Note 8 smartphone.

Rumors also indicate that Xiaomi has used ISOCELL Bright GW1 sensor from Samsung that was announced earlier this year. However, there is no official confirmation from the company regarding that. If the China-based brand uses the aforementioned camera sensor, then the smartphone would be capable of producing 16MP images even in poor lighting conditions, which would be achieved by merging four pixels to one using the Tetracell technology. It can also convert colour filters to give 64MP shots.

Apart from the camera details, no other specifications have been announced or teased so far. The unnamed smartphone from Redmi is said to launch in China for which the specific date is yet to come. Besides Xiaomi, Realme is also working towards launching a 64MP camera smartphone in India as confirmed by CEO Madhav Sheth.
