In June, Madhav Seth (Realme’s CEO) said that they will launch a phone with a 64MP camera module. After all the rumours & reports the brand is going to unveil the camera technology on August 8 at New Delhi. Though it isn’t still confirmed that what the brand will launch i.e either phone or it will showcase the camera technology.

The Realme smartphone will be equipped by a Samsung ISOCELL Bright GW1 sensor, as of now it is the only sensor which supports 64MP. It is a sensor with a pixel size of 0.8μm, with Samsung’s Tetracell technology, which implies 4-in-1 pixel binning, the sensor captures output pictures at 16MP with a pixel size of 1.6μm. Compared to the previous-gen Samsung GM1 or the Sony IMX586, both of which are 1/2″ 48MP sensor, this 64MP sensor is larger and should, therefore, capture more light. Adding to this, pixel binning should increase the amount of exposure further.
Realme is also boasting about its AI for scene recognition and clicking life-like images. Earlier Madhav has shared some images captured on the device via twitter.

Talking about the other three sensors, we can expect to have at least one wide-angle camera, while the other two could be a telephoto sensor and a dedicated depth sensor. We would be really surprised if the company includes an optical zoom setup or a ToF sensor, seeing how Realme has placed itself in the early segments on the market. Apparently, Xiaomi has also announced that they will be showcasing with 64MP on August 7 (Tomorrow).
