A new Redmi phone with a 64-megapixel camera may soon become a reality. Xiaomi on Monday posted a camera sample on Weibo to tease the development of its 64-megapixel camera phone. This could be the world’s first 64-megapixel camera smartphone — taking on the existing 48-megapixel camera phones. The new Redmi phone is believed to sport the 64-megapixel ISOCELL Bright GW1 sensor that Samsung unveiled back in May. The sensor comes with a pixel size of 0.8 microns. Also, it is capable of capturing 16-megapixel images in low-light conditions by merging four pixels into one using Samsung’s Tetracell technology.
The actual performance of the 64-megapixel Redmi phone is yet to be determined. Nevertheless, the Redmi team on Weibo posted the camera sample that suggests high-grade zoom support through the all-new camera sensor.
