Xiaomi is rumored to add a 64-megapixel camera sensor on their next phone.
As quoted from the TechRadar site, XDA Developer is a developer community in China. There is news from one of its members who realized that there was an ultra pixel camera mode, with 64 mp, in the latest MIUI 10 Camera app.
For your information, the 48 mp camera sensor is the largest sensor used by a few of the flagship phones. Such as the Redmi Note 7 Pro, OnePlus 7 Pro, ASUS ZenFone 6, and the latest Oppo Reno 10x Zoom.
Previously, Samsung announced two new camera sensors too. Their names are the 48-megapixel ISOCELL Bright GM2. Another is the 64-megapixel ISOCELL Bright GW1.
The 64 mp image sensor one was made to add the 48 mp Sony IMX586 sensor.
This sensor is counted to be fit for the premium flagship phones that Samsung will announce later this year.
Many people who predict the new image sensor will be used to arm the Samsung Galaxy Note 10. Sadly, the leaked info for the public reveals that it will not happen.
Samsung’s Sensor Business Executive Vice President, Yongin Park, said that the two latest camera sensors were supported with 0.8-micrometer pixels. This sensor uses tetra cell tech with the Remosaic algorithm.
Similar to the tetra cell tech that merges four 12 mp pixels into a 48 mp sensor. This 64 mp sensor also merges four pixels of 16 mp.
With this tetra cell tech, GW1 can produce with a resolution of a 64 mp camera when supported by the good lighting. But, in an environment that has lacked light, the camera shots can only produce 16 mp images.
