Realme CEO claims it will be the first company to come out with a 64 MP camera phone
As more and more companies try and jump on the 48 MP camera hype, Realme is clearly not looking to wait around for the Samsung and Xiaomi this year to introduce the first 64 MP camera phone.
Realme CEO Madhav Sheth, who loves to talk about upcoming smartphone tech on Twitter, has now posted a camera sample that was shot on a mysterious new Realme phone, claiming that it will be the world’s first phone with a 64 MP Samsung ISOCELL Bright GW1 sensor. The CEO also confirmed in a subsequent tweet that the phone in question will be launched in India before anywhere else.
The new 64 MP ISOCELL Bright GW1 image sensor, unveiled recently by Samsung features a 4-in-1 pixel technology to merge four 0.8 micron pixels into a single 1.6-micron pixel to deliver binned 16 MP photos in low-light conditions and 64 MP images in brighter conditions.

While not a lot is known about this mysterious Realme phone, the company did take to its Weibo account to state that the same smartphone will also be Realme’s first smartphone with a quad-camera setup. Now what the other three lenses will cater to, is still something that we’ll have to wait for.
