Realme has been doing some real solid work in the budget as well as mid-range category of smartphones. Recently, it was also announced that they are going to launch a 5G device soon. Today, the company has revealed a picture taken on a mystery Realme device with 64MP camera. This leads me to believe that Realme might launch a new device with 64MP camera soon.
The 64MP sensor used by Realme is supposed to be the Samsung GW1. This is currently the largest sensor you’ll get on a phone at 1/1.72” which means individual pixel size of 1.6µm. It’s a Quad Bayer type sensor (Tetracell, according to Samsung) which means it’ll combine 4 pixels into one for most of the shots – Effectively shooting at 16MP.
As much as this sounds good, I think that a Sony’s sensor would probably end up beating this in the future – just like we saw with the Samsung GM1 vs Sony IMX 586. Overall, the Sony IMX 586 has turned out to be a better sensor and is used in much more devices.

Here’s the first look at the capability of the Samsung GW1 sensor. It’s the picture shared by Realme India’s CEO, Madhav Sheth on Twitter. He has not given any specific launch date for the device yet, but it might just be sooner – rather than later. Also, it’s has been confirmed that it will be launched in India first. So, brace yourself to see this come true real soon.
