Xiaomi to use Samsung’s 64MP sensor?

Samsung recently announced its 64-megapixel ISOCELL Bright GW1 sensor. It uses Pixel-merging Tetracell technology along with remosaic algorithms to offer 16-megapixel images in low-light. The tech uses four pixels and merges them to work as one to increase light sensitivity. And during brighter conditions, users can get highly detailed 64-megapixel photos with good details. The camera sensor also supports real-time high dynamic range (HDR) with up to 100-decibels (dB).

In the Redmi Note 7 Pro, Xiaomi is using a 48-megapixel Sony sensor, whereas the Redmi Note 7S comes with a 48-megapixel Samsung GM1 sensor. For the next Xiaomi smartphone with quad-camera tech, we expect a 64-megapixel Samsung GW1 sensor.
