Last week we got to know a mysterious Redmi device may become the first to use Samsung’s latest 64MP sensor. Now, a reference for the 64MP “ultra-pixel” mode is spotted in the MIUI Camera app by XDA Developers’ member in the latest MIUI 10 (version 9.6.17) China Developer ROM for the Redmi K20 Pro.
There’s also a default text, “64MP dual camera” found in these strings that further confirms the presence of this camera and this, in turn, indicates that the Chinese company might be preparing to release a smartphone with this big megapixels camera setup.
The name of the device is currently unknown but it’s rumored to be a Redmi device. And, it would be interesting to see a Redmi device using this sensor first. Xiaomi and now Redmi as well have gained an immense reputation of selling flagship-grade specs to the mid-range segment and even the affordable ones at a compelling price. So, now seeing Redmi becoming the first to use Samsung’s 64MP does bring joy to the followers who want to have amazing specs at a comparatively lower price.
Samsung announced its 64MP ISOCELL Bright GW1 sensor with a 64MP resolution last month. It supports 4-in-1 Tetra cell technology which will allow 64MP images to be condensed in 16MP shots for sufficient day-time lighting and low-light performance. Additionally, users should also have the ability to take 64MP pictures in the Pro mode.
