Xiaomi has been teasing the upcoming Redmi smartphone with a 64 MP quad sensor camera setup for a while.
While details on the upcoming smartphone are limited, the fact that the company is adding a high-resolution camera to its Redmi smartphone has been confirmed by many.
Recently, at the Xiaomi Future Image Technology Communication Conference in Beijing, Xiaomi gave a presentation focused on the company’s camera technology. The Chinese tech giant showcased the 64MP Samsung ISOCELL GW1 camera sensor and teased a smartphone coming with a 108MP (!) camera sensor.
The 64MP Redmi smartphone is expected to hit the markets in the fourth quarter of 2019. According to Xiaomi’s claims, Redmi will be the first company to add a 64MP camera on a smartphone.
It might just be the Redmi Note 8.

64 MP Samsung ISOCELL GW1 Camera Sensor
This camera sensor packs 38 percent more pixels than the current 48 MP camera sensors on the market which, according to Xiaomi, will help capture brighter, more detailed and vibrant pictures.
The ISOCELL GW1 sensor measures 1/1.7 inches and has a 1.6-micrometer pixel size. The Redmi smartphone which will feature this sensor will most probably come with a quad-camera setup and will launch in India first.
108MP Samsung ISOCELL Camera Sensor
Even though the event was focused on the already released 64 MP sensor, Xiaomi also dropped a teaser for another smartphone that will feature a 108 MP camera.
If this happens, this Mi smartphone will be the first to feature such a high-resolution camera sensor, coming in at 12,032 x 9,024 pixels.
According to a popular leakster @iceuniverse, the 108 MP camera sensor will be included on the Xiaomi Mi Mix 4.
