Realme working on a phone with a 64MP quad camera, will debut in India

Ivan, 24 June 2019

Realme is working on a phone with the Samsung-made 64MP GW1 sensor and it plans to premiere it in India soon.

The sensor is the largest you'll be able to get in a phone at 1/1.72", resulting in 1.6µm individual pixel size.

Not only this, but as you can see from the watermark it will be only one of four snappers at the back.

Below is a resized sample captured with the new sensor, which Realme India CEO Madhav Sheth posted on Twitter.

While he didn't give a date for the phone's release, Realme's CEO did promise it will launch in India before anywhere else and seeing how it's already able to capture share-worthy photos it can't be too long now.

No I won't, but ok if you believe so.
