Xiaomi announced its first 64MP smartphone imaging technology at a global event held in Beijing, China. This technology uses Samsung’s GW1 64MP sensor and will be implemented first on a Redmi Series smartphone launching in India in the Q4 of 2019 (Between October and December 2019). This makes Xiaomi the first smartphone company to exhibit the upcoming 64MP imaging technology.
The GW1 sensor uses ISOCELL Plus technology to create a pixel-to-pixel barrier to reduce light interference between pixels and consequently improve color reproduction. The GW1 uses smart ISO backed by Dual Conversion Gain technology that intelligently adjusts the ISO sensitivity based on ambient light intensity.
It uses low ISO in high-brightness environments, and high ISO in the dark-light environments to achieve the best signal-to-noise ratio for the entire scene. The GW1 outputs 64MP photos with a resolution of 9248 x 6936 pixels. It also supports real-time hardware-backed HDR of upto 100dB which is 40% higher compared to 60db of a conventional image sensor.
Apart from the 64MP sensor, we don’t have any specific details about the upcoming Redmi smartphone. We’ll update once we receive more info this upcoming product. Follow us on Facebook and Twitter for the latest updates. Check out this link for latest Xiaomi smartphones.
