Xiaomi To Launch 48 Megapixel Camera Smartphone This Month
Xiaomi has always been secretive about their phones but are known to tease their customers with snippets. Last month, a top executive from Xiaomi posted a photo of a teaser for a phone that showed the back of the phone and the camera partially. The text under the camera said “48 MP Camera”. The executive also said that the phone would be launched in January of 2019.
What We Know So Far?
Recently, a new poster has surfaced with the words “Always believe that something wonderful is about to happen” . Another poster hints at the Redmi Pro 2 being launched. Connecting the dots, it seems like the Redmi Pro 2 will be launched at the event. If it is indeed the Redmi Pro 2, it will be the first phone in the world to have a camera with as high a resolution as 48 Megapixel.
The Nokia Lumia 1020 was one of the highest megapixel cameras launched with a 41 MP back camera. The phone image shared by the Xiaomi executive suggests it to have a vertical camera setup with a flash. We also suspect that the phone will have higher storage capacities, specially since higher megapixel cameras shoot images that are considerably large in size. Our guess would be at least 256 GB of storage along with complimentary Mi Cloud storage.
Speculations are rife that the phone will sport a Sony IMX586 48-megapixel sensor or Samsung’s ISOCELL Bright GM1 48-megapixel sensor. What was initially thought to be the Xiaomi Mi 9 might just be the Redmi Pro 2. Given that the first Redmi Pro was launched way back in July of 2016, a new Redmi pro was long overdue! In fact the event isn’t far away at all. It has been organised for tomorrow and we are all hopeful that Xiaomi will start off the year with a bang!
