Chinese smartphone maker Xiaomi has announced that its upcoming Redmi phone, which will be the first phone, will come with a 64MP imaging technology. The 64MP imaging technology will be powered by Samsung’s GW1 64MP sensor. The smartphone is expected to launch in the fourth quarter of 2019.

The GW1 sensor uses Samsung’s ISOCELL Plus technology to create a pixel-to-pixel barrier to reduce light interference between pixels and consequently improve color reproduction. Additionally, the GW1 features smart ISO supported by dual conversion gain (DCG) technology, which intelligently adjusts the ISO sensitivity based on ambient light intensity. It uses low ISO in high-brightness environments, and high ISO in the dark-light environments to achieve the best signal-to-noise ratio for the entire scene.

The GW1 processes 64MP photos with a resolution of 9248 x 6936 pixels and come with a real-time hardware-supported high dynamic range (HDR) of up to 100-decibels (dB) to provide a wider color gamut and richer hues. The dynamic range of a conventional sensor is around 60db, and that of the human eye is 120db. Thus, with GW1 sensor, the smartphone will be designed to provide true-to-life colors.

The company recently announced its flagship ‘K’ series in India consisting of the Redmi K20 Pro and Redmi K20 smartphones. The smartphone sports a 6.39-inch 19.5:9 full HD+ AMOLED horizon display offering a screen to body ratio of 91.9 percent. There is a 20MP pop-up camera. The Redmi K20 Pro comes with an AI triple camera setup, comprising of a 48MP main camera using Sony IMX586 sensor, an 8MP telephoto and a 13MP wide-angle.

The smartphone is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor and is available in two storage variants — 6GB/128GB and 8GB/256GB. The Redmi K20 Pro is launched at Rs 27,999 for the 6GB+128GB variant and Rs 30,999 for the 8GB+256GB variant.
