64MP Smartphone - A few months ago, two giant companies namely Samsung and Qualcomm began showing off high resolution camera sensors (100 & 64MP) that are ready to be used for smartphones in the future.

Reportedly the 64MP camera smartphone will be released in the middle of this year around August. As for the 100MP smartphone, it will be released next year.
Redmi Exhibits a 64MP Smartphone That Will Be Released Soon
Samsung itself announced the sensor last May, the 64 MP sensor was named ISOCELL Bright GW1. At the same time they also exhibited their latest Bright GM2 48 MP sensor.

Bright GW1 is the first 64 MP sensor, with these sensors a subsidiary of Xiaomi (Redmi) will start the 64MP smartphone era.

What are the details like? Let's discuss further.

The 48MP sensor has been used by several smartphones. But unlike the 48MP sensor, this time Samsung uses Tetracell Binding Technology for its 64MP sensor.

The sensor combines 4 pixels into one with the Binning Pixel feature. ISOCELL Bright GW1 is able to create 16MP resolution images in low-light conditions that will still look bright and clear and equipped with a remosaic algorithm to create full 64MP images in bright places / conditions.

But I explained in the previous article, it would be better to take pictures using the Pixel Binning feature because it can produce more detailed photos.

Below is an official promo poster from Xiaomi.
Other news also reports that the sensor pixel size is the same as the 48MP sensor, which is 0.8μm. That makes Bright GW1 33% larger e.g 1 / 1.7 ″ or 1.8 i inch which can be said to be quite large for a smartphone.

But this is natural, smartphones like Huawei Mate Series also use sensors that are of the same magnitude.

Samsung ISOCELL Bright GW1 is also equipped with dual conversion gain (DCG) and High-performance Super PD Phase Detection Auto Focus that can provide sharper image quality. The sensor can also record Full HD @ 480FPS resolution, no less complete the Quad-Bayer sensor also allows users to use the Real-time HDR feature.

While the 48MP Bright GM2 is just an updated version of GM1 that can capture light more efficiently in bright environments / conditions.

Autofocus performance is also enhanced by the features that Samsung calls Super PD (Phase Detection).
The head of the Redmi company, Lou Weibing himself has also tested the smartphone by showing the 64MP mode on his smartphone.

Redmi itself does not provide what series smartphone information that will use the 64MP sensor. But enthusiasts have speculated that the most likely smartphone is the Redmi K30 or the upcoming Redmi Note 8.
