Unfortunately, Xiaomi did not give any specifics as to which smartphone will come with the aforementioned image sensor as well as tech specs. The maximum resolution of a photo from that sensor will be 12,032 x 9,024 pixels.

It doesn't look like we will have to wait long for 100 megapixel cameras in our smartphones. More powerful camera phones are coming your way. Xiaomi co-founder and president Lin Bin made an appearance detailing the company's upcoming 64MP Redmi smartphone, as well as the company's advancements in camera technology and their future in terms of camera suppliers and performance.

Xiaomi's sub-brand, Redmi, is expected to announce a new smartphone that will utilise Samsung's 64MP GW1 ISOCELL image sensor. A Credit Suisse report released in March this year highlights how smartphone companies have planned to flood the market with 64MP Camera smartphones in 2H 2019.

The Redmi Note 8 is said to be the first 64MP phone that will be released in India first. "We focused on online, we grew that market from 6 percent to 35 percent and within that 35 percent, we now have 50 percent share".

Redmi stays ahead in the competition and announces the camera technology that is being used in the Redmi 64MP camera phone today. According to Xiaomi, the 64MP sensor is 34% larger than the 48MP unit. Samsung and Realme have confirmed that they will be launching phones with a 64MP camera sensor at the back. Natively, the 1/1.7-inch sensor enables 0.8 micron pixel size, pretty much like the current 48-megapixel standard.

Samsung's new GW-1 is capable of delivering pixel-binned shots at 16MP resolution in default mode.
