Samsung Electronics Co. scored a victory over Sony Corp. after a major Chinese customer declared it was going with the Korean company's camera sensors in future smartphones. Qualcomm has also indicated that it will support higher resolution sensors, including ones with 64MP and 108MP resolution. We're looking forward to the "Future of Camera" although not many information is available. Whereas, the company did not reveal more details about the release date and functions of the two phones. According to a report by The Next Web, at a briefing in China, the company announced that it "will become the first manufacturer to use Samsung's brand new 108-megapixel ISOCELL sensor". The company plans to launch a 64MP camera phone later on in the year. The announcement came just after the showcasing of 64MP camera smartphone.
The first Redmi smartphone with a 64MP sensor will launch as soon as the next quarter, confirmed the Xiaomi sub-brand at the event. However, considering the intensifying competition in the India smartphone market, it won't be an exaggeration to say that smartphone with 100MP camera would be up for grab by the end of this year or latest by early next year.
Xiaomi is the only player that has gone ahead and talked about an even bigger 108MP camera sensor at the back. The Chinese firm will be using Samsung's 64MP ISOCELL sensor. If you think the cameras today are already powerful, imagine what the Redmi 64MP phone can do. While in daylight, the sensor can produce a well-detailed 64MP picture.
