Realme will be one of the first brands to launch a smartphone with a 64MP Quad camera. The company confirmed this a few weeks ago with Realme India CEO Madhav Sheth. The company posting a camera sample shot using a 64MP camera. On Friday, the company announced a Realme Camera Innovation Event on August 8 in New Delhi where it will talk about the world’s first 64MP quad camera technology on a smartphone.
Just last month, the company posted a teaser image of the phone on Weibo, which only showed the camera section. Realme’s India invite also simply shows this section, so the design of the rest of the body of the 64-megapixel smartphone is still a complete mystery. Realme India’s CEO, Madhav Sheth also confirmed that India will be the first country to get this new phone. It’s also the first one to launch with Samsung’s new 64-megapixel ISOCELL GW1.

Currently, all we are aware of is Samsung has developed a 64 MP ISOCELL Bright GW1 image sensor. As per Samsung, this new sensor has the highest resolution in Samsung’s 0.8μm-pixel image sensor lineup and also features the “industry’s highest resolution” lens.
We still have no idea what the other camera sensors on the Realme phone would be but our guess, is that besides the primary 64-megapixel wide-angle lens, we could also see a telephoto lens; an ultra-wide angle lens; and probably a ToF camera. The same goes for the rest of the specifications, which are still a mystery. With just a week to go, thankfully, we don’t have a long wait to get most of the answers.
