Realme India To Launch A 64 MP Camera Smartphone
Realme has just unveiled its plans on launching the worlds first smartphone with a 64MP camera. This new device will have its debut in India before being launched to the global market, as promised by Realme. The Shenzhen-based Chinese company was once a subsidiary of OPPO. Notably, in the past, Xiaomi had also claimed to launch worlds first smartphone with a 64MP camera sensor which is yet to happen.
Realme is developing the smartphone which will utilize Samsung’s GW1 camera sensor to achieve the 64MP title. The handset which will premiere in India has the largest sensor that can be found in a smartphone at 1/1.72 inch. This enables a large 1.6µm pixel size that is capable of better and clearer shots in various low light scenarios.
Realme India’s CEO went on Twitter to share the first ever shot (as seen below) taken by the yet unnamed upcoming smartphone. Notably, the device will be equipped with a Tetracell type sensor which is based similar to the Quad Bayer technology (a colour reproduction method used in a multi-camera device). This allows for the camera sensor to output 16MP images natively.

According to the image, the upcoming Realme device will sport three additional camera sensors alongside its 64MP primary shooter. The watermark in the image proves that the smartphone will have an AI-assisted quad camera module at the back. The tweet also ensures that a lot more of such camera samples would soon be teased by the smartphone manufacturing company.
Unfortunately, no ETA (estimated time of arrival) has been provided regarding the devices release date which is promised to launch in India before anywhere else. Furthermore, the implications of the image shared means that the device is almost ready or is in the final stages of development. Unfortunately, internal specifications and hardware regarding the handset are still at large as well. The upcoming Realme smartphone is expected that the device may launch before year-end or failing that early 2020.
