Despite the statement of the head of Zeiss that the resolution of mobile cameras does not solve anything, and 40 megapixels "more than enough", smartphone manufacturers definitely believe otherwise. During the presentation on the new 64-megapixel sensor, the Redmi brand revealed its even more ambitious plan to release the first gadget with a resolution of the main camera 108 MP.
Redmi plans to use the world's first sensor with a resolution of 108 megapixels, developed by Samsung. The matrix of this chip is capable of taking photos with an aspect ratio of 12,032 x 9024 pixels. This was stated by the head of the brand Redmi Lin Bin. Collaboration with the South Korean brand will allow the company to be the first to release a smartphone with a record sensor resolution.
Earlier, the well-known insider Ice universe announced the possibility of releasing an advanced camera phone. According to him, already in 2020, devices with a resolution of the main camera of 108 megapixels and 10x optical zoom will appear on the market. Most modern smartphones use hybrid zoom technology with a significant amount of digital noise. Optical zoom affects image quality to a much lesser extent.
The name, other technical specifications and the expected date of the announcement of the unusual Redmi smartphone were not announced by the head of the brand.
