Xiaomi Officially Confirms That It Will Use the Samsung GW1 64MP Sensor


The camera is one of the most important segments on which mobile producers are doing their best to fight competition. It is no coincidence that it will soon go from 48MP to 64MP and not only on the high end. Just think that both Redmi and Realme are working to introduce it in their smartphone park.

Earlier this week, Redmi confirmed that it will hold an event on August 7th in China called “Xiaomi Future Technology Communication Meeting”. Probably, the company will talk about the imminent use of the 64MP sensor on a Redmi smartphone.

Rumors indicate that the mysterious Redmi phone will be equipped with the 64MP Samsung GW1 sensor. Yan Zhiyuan, director of marketing for Xiaomi mobile products, confirmed this through a post of Weibo.

He also stated that the company has prepared a huge stock of sensors, so as to have a particularly high offer to prepare for the possible market demand. At this point, it is reasonable to expect that Xiaomi or Redmi will become the first companies to launch a smartphone with a 64MP camera.

In the past few hours, a mysterious smartphone has been certified with not only four rear cameras but also the recently announced MediaTek Helio G90T SoC, focused on gaming.

Returning to the Samsung GW1 photographic sensor, it has a size of 1 / 1.76 ″ and is equipped with 0.8 μm pixels and Tetracell technology to join four pixels in one to guarantee clear images of 16MP (similar to the one made by the sensor of Redmi Note 7 which combines 4 pixels to get 12MP photos). Moreover, it is able to record 1080p movies at 480 frames per second and to show up to 100 dB of dynamic interval in real-time.

And if there were any doubts about it, the sensor used by Xiaomi, as well as by all other manufacturers, will be the Samsung GW1. Also because today it is the only one to offer such a resolution.

And it is paradoxical to think that this sensor will debut first on smartphones of other brands than on those of Samsung itself. But on the other hand, the sensor market, as well as hardware components in general, is one of the most profitable for the South Korean home.

Which will be the terminal to introduce it is not yet clear. It is rumored that it could be the new model with Helio G90T. This could be Redmi Note 8, but in this case, it would be Redmi and not Xiaomi.
