Realme India CEO Madhav Sheth has been teasing a powerful smarphone camera for a while now on social media. The top honcho first shared an image that was shot using an unnamed 64-megapixel quad camera smartphone. This was followed by an announcement that the company will be launching the smartphone in India first, and an image of the phone’s quad camera module on Realme’s Weibo account. Now, the company has official announced an event in New Delhi to showcase the camera.

The company has now taken to Twitter to announce its ‘Realme Camera Innovation Event’ on August 8th. The tweet reads, “Get ready to witness some of the world’s first in smartphone camera technology at the #realme camera innovation event. Stay Tuned as we #LeapToQuadCamera and reveal the world’s first 64MP Quad Camera technology on a smartphone.” It’s evident now that this will be the first quad-camera module in the world to feature a 64-megapixel sensor. Sheth had revealed earlier that the sensor will be Samsung ISOCELL “GW1 largest 1/1.72” sensor and mega 1.6µm pixel with amazing clear shots in low light too.”
The Weibo post shared by the company earlier revealed that the camera sensor will be able to capture ultra-high resolution photos of 9,216 x 6,912 pixels. Realme claimed that the images will not only be detailed and clear, but also look realistic. The upgraded ISOCELL Plus pixel isolation technology has improved image sensitivity and colour fidelity thanks to the reduced light interference between the pixels. Equipped with Tetracell pixel-binning technology and remosaic algorithm, the sensor captures 16MP shots in low-light and 64MP in daylight conditions. Other features include Super PD autofocus, 100-decibels of real-time HDR, full HD video shooting at 480fps and full HD super slow-motion video recording.
As of now, there is no word on which phone will flaunt this new camera module. We expect to get more details at the Realme Camera Innovation event next week.
