The upcoming Realme XT handset from Realme is the first phone with a camera of 64 megapixels. In a message shared on Weibo, the company's CMO, Xu Qi Chase, shared a view of the upcoming phone and revealed that one of its four rear camera cameras would use the new high-resolution sensor, almost certainly from the new 1/1 , 7-inch ISOCELL Bright GW1 sensor from Samsung. The phone also has an ultra wide angle lens, a macro lens and a depth sensor, which you can view from closer by in photos of the device published by Android Central.
Realme races against Xiaomi to release the first 64-megapixel camera in a phone. Xiaomi is expected to unveil the Redmi Note 8 on August 29, and Android Central notes that the Redmi Note 8 Pro is expected to use the same high resolution sensor. There is currently no official word about the release date of Xiaomi or the handsets of Realme, so it is unclear which will come first on the market.
If you want to see what photos taken with the Realme XT can look like, check out the sample images that the company released earlier this month. Although the sensor is designed as standard to produce images of 16 megapixels (by combining information from groups of four pixels at a time), the images contain an astonishing amount of detail.
While both phone companies are preparing to launch 64-megapixel camera phones, Xiaomi also says it is hard at work integrating the new 108-megapixel sensor from Samsung into another upcoming handset, although it has offered no further information about when this unnamed phone may come on the market.
