For the past several months, there was talk of 64-megapixel camera in the entire tech world. The race was on which brand would first bring a smartphone equipped with a 64-megapixel camera. Both the top brand’s Realme and Xiaomi had showcased their own devices that work on 64-megapixel camera technology. At the same time, both these brands have lifted the curtain from their devices this week. While Realme has introduced Realme XT, Xiaomi has launched Redmi Note 8 Pro on the international platform. Both these smartphones are equipped with 64-megapixel camera sensors.
Both Realme XT and Xiaomi Redmi Note 8 Pro smartphones have been launched on a quad rear camera setup equipped with a 64-megapixel sensor. Fans of both brands are supporting their favorite company. But let us tell you that these smartphones offered by Realme and Xiaomi are built on Samsung’s ISOCELL Bright GW1 camera technology and support 64-megapixel camera sensors equipped with the same technology. Whether Realme XT or Xiaomi Redmi Note 8 Pro, both smartphones use the same technology and give the result of 64-megapixel camera. Let’s tell you what is this Samsung technology.
How 64-MP Camera Works
The new ISOCELL Bright GW1 technology introduced by Samsung is built in coordination with pixel-merging Tetracell technology and mosaic algorithm. Combining these two advanced technologies, this sensor captures 4 photos simultaneously at 16-megapixels and combines four different photo files to create a 64-megapixel photo file. This Samsung camera sensor follows the same program in low light and clicks a 64-megapixel photo.
The ISOCELL Bright GW1 camera sensor in Realme XT and Xiaomi Redmi Note 8 Pro also supports Real-Time High Dynamic Range (HDR) up to 100-decibels (dB). Due to this, the photo taken from the phone gives a very high-grade hue and all the colors in the captured photo are very clear and sharp. This camera sensor technology is equipped with dual conversion gain (DCG) which converts the light coming into the camera into an electronic signal.
These will be special features
The SOCELL Bright GW1 camera sensor optimizes the changing light in the electronic signal through full well capacity (FWC) and brightens the photo in a balanced way. Due to this camera sensor technology, Realme XT and Xiaomi Redmi Note 8 Pro smartphones are capable of producing full HD slow-motion video at 480fps speed. Along with this, Realme and Xiaomi smartphones are also equipped with state-of-the-art technology like High Performance Phase Detection Auto Focus Technology (Super PD).
