Moments after Realme announced the Realme 5 Pro, it announced its upcoming smartphone that is set to be the first phone in the world to sport a 64MP camera. This upcoming smartphone, named the Realme XT, will be launched in September in what is already a crowded month for smartphone launches.
Samsung’s GW1 sensor will make use of tetracell technology and its remosaic algorithm to produce ‘bright’ images in low-light environments and 64MP shots in brighter settings. The image samples that Realme has shared seem to be really promising.
The Realme XT will sport a quad-camera setup that can be expected to be similar to that of the recently unveiled Realme 5 Pro. It is expected to have an ultra-wide sensor, a depth-sensing sensor and a macro lens along with the primary GW1 sensor. While it’s too early to know anything else, it is expected to be another mid-range device that will sit above the Realme 5 Pro and the Realme X.
The smartphone camera industry is making progress by leaps and bounds. A drastic improvement in the software side of things along with improvements in camera hardware is pushing boundaries of what’s possible with smartphone cameras. And if 64MP doesn’t sound like a big jump in pixels, wait for Samsung to launch it’s 108MP sensor later this year that is expected to find home in a Redmi device before the end of this year.
