48MP camera sensors have become mainstream across all range of smartphones ranging from small value devices to flagship offerings. So it is time for OEMs to up their game. Samsung already set the stage when it announced the 64MP ISOCELL Bright GW1 sensor earlier in May. That Sensor will in a matter of months become mainstream once again. OEMs including OPPO sub-brand brand Realme have started teasing their 64MP camera phone. For Realme, it appears it won’t be a long time before we see a Realme phone with a 64MP primary sensor.
The brand’s CEO Madhav Sheth had earlier hinted it will be using Samsung’s 64MP Isocell Bright GW1 sensor in one of its upcoming smartphone set to be released soon. Details about the device are scarce at the moment, but the company has just revealed when it will first showcase the 64MP phone. It has now scheduled a “Camera Innovation Event” for August 8 in the Indian capital New Delhi where it will reveal more about its 64MP quad-camera technology.

Realme64MP Camera phone launch
It is also not known whether or not the brand will reveal just a prototype of the device or the market ready smartphone. Whatever the case is, the Realme’s 64MP phone as per the event poster will feature a Quad-camera setup, perhaps consisting of telephoto and ultra-wide-angle modules, and of course a depth sensor.
Perhaps more details will be uncovered in the days leading to the August 8th event.
