If you think the days of mobile photography is at its peak, then think again. We all know that Samsung has already released a 64MP camera sensor for smartphones, and today we get to see it in action. The teaser image is actually from Realme, the rather-new smartphone brand.
Samsung’s sensor is called the ISOCELL Bright GW1, which is the aforementioned 64MP camera sensor. The 64MP image measures in at a resolution of 9216×6912 pixels, and the image itself is 16MB in size. That’s ridiculous. For the likes of all 48MP cameras that we have today, each picture measures in at about 10MP. Being in the age where pressing the shutter button multiple times is actually a good thing, we can fill up the internal storage pretty quickly.
Of course, there is the 4-in-1 pixel binning technology as well. That means you can capture a single 16MP picture that is brighter.
Realme first announced a sample of the 64MP camera, which comes from the ISOCELL Bright GW1 released by Samsung not long ago, but the mobile phone has not yet released. Another competitor is Redmi.

The teased Realme smartphone here will also feature a quadruple camera setup, as hinted by with the watermark at the bottom left corner. Possibly, it will have the typical main, telephoto, and ultrawide cameras alongside with a depth sensor. I do hope that the 4th camera is a TOF camera like what we’ve seen on the HONOR View20 (review).
Since an image is already being teased (and it looks breathtaking, by the way) we do expect the phone to be announced sometime soon. We do not have any details regarding this upcoming Realme phone.
Since the Samsung ISOCELL Bright GW1 64MP camera sensor is already available in the market, we expect upcoming smartphone refreshed to use them. We’re looking at the likes of OPPO, Xiaomi & Redmi, and also perhaps Samsung’s own A90. Maybe the Note10?
