A camera is one of the most important aspects of the phone now. That is why a company is working and putting lots of effort in the camera of the phone. According to some media reports, Chinese smartphone maker Xiaomi is reportedly working on a device that will feature a 48-megapixel primary camera. This new smartphone is expected to be introduced in January 2019.
Lin Bin, President of Xiaomi, posted on Weibo that the Chinese smartphone maker is working to release a smartphone with a 48-megapixel camera. He even went on to reveal that the smartphone with such high-resolution camera will arrive in the market in January 2019. Post Bin’s announcement on Weibo, MIUI officially confirmed that the smartphone is running the MIUI 10 system, which could be based on Android Pie and not Android Oreo.
Lin didn’t share anything else, apart from the fact that the smartphone will be launched in January and that, apparently, he has been using it for a few weeks. Xiaomi could, therefore, be the first in the world to present a phone with a 48-megapixel camera, likely equipped with Sony IMX586 sensor or ISOCELL Bright GM1 by Samsung.
The smartphone is expected to be equipped with Sony IMX586, a 48MP quad Bayer sensor which was announced in July this year and started shipping to OEMs in September.
