Taking forward the ‘More Megapixels, The Better’ ideology, Xiaomi has started teasing a future smartphone with a 48-megapixel camera sensor. To recall, Huawei’s P20 Pro and the Mate 20 Pro come with 40-megapixel camera sensors.
According to an image posted by Xiaomi president, Lin Bin via the Chinese micro-blogging site Weibo, the smartphone might sport the camera module at the top-left corner at the back, along with dual-tone LED flash.
However, the image (shown at the top of the article) doesn’t reveal the device fully, and there is no word on how many camera sensors the upcoming smartphone will feature.
The post further suggests that Lin Bin has been using the smartphone for weeks and considers it ‘Not Bad!’
Additionally, the smartphone is slated to launch in January, therefore, we can expect its entry during CES 2019.
While details regarding the smartphone still remain unknown, the company is expected to use either a Sony IMX586 or a Samsung ISOCELL Bright GM1 sensor or both for its cameras. Both the Sony and Samsung sensors are capable of achieving a 4x digital zoom and providing a 12-megapixel result.
However, we still lack concrete details at the time of writing and need to wait until January for an official announcement. Till then, stay tuned to this space for more information.
