Realme is gearing up to launch its new Realme 8 series soon in the market. Well, the exact timeframe of its launch is still unknown but the company has come up to confirm some key camera features.
At its digital Camera Innovation Event, Realme confirmed that its upcoming Realme 8 Pro phone will adopt the latest generation Samsung 108MP sensor HM2. Well, Realme had already teased the 108MP camera sensor later in February, indicating it is utilizing the sensor. While it confirmed the megapixels, the type of sensor was unknown. But, now, via its event, Realme has confirmed the name of the sensor as well.
The 108MP ISOCELL HM2 is the third-generation sensor from Samsung introduced in September last year. It has features like faster and effective phase detection, 3x lossless zoom, and nine-pixel binning technology, which crops a 108MP image in 12MP size. It also features Smart-ISO for brighter and crisp pictures even in low-light situations.
Furthermore, the Realme 8 Pro will also come with in-sensor zoom technology that uses a proprietary clarity enhancement algorithm to deliver enhanced zoomed images. This tech combines eight 12MP photos in a row to increase their clarity while zooming into a certain area.
Realme also said that the Realme 8 series, will provide three portrait filters including Neon Portrait, Dynamic Bokeh Portrait, and AI Color Portrait. Realme also announced the updated Starry Mode that works with time-lapse videos.
Realme also announced a tilt-shift time-lapse video feature that will be available on the Realme 8 series. Users will also get the options to adjust parameters such a shape, angle, position when using the tilt-shift mode.
As we said earlier, the exact launch timeframe of the Realme 8 series is unknown but while concluding the event, Realme said the phones will debut “very soon.”
