Redmi smartphone with Samsung’s 64MP GW1 sensor said to be in the works

Samsung introduced its 64MP ISOCELL Bright GW1 sensor earlier last month. There were reports of the upcoming Galaxy A70S with the 64MP GW1 sensor to launch later this year. Today, new reports suggest that an upcoming Redmi smartphone will also sport the 64MP ISOCELL Bright GW1 sensor and is expected to come in the second half of 2019.

According to reports, Samsung is planning to debut its latest 64MP ISOCELL sensor on one of the upcoming Galaxy A series model and surprisingly, an upcoming Redmi smartphone is also said to come with the new 64MP sensor.

The 64MP sensor uses Pixel-merging Tetracell technology and the remosaic algorithm offers 16MP images in low-light environments where four pixels are merged to work as one to increase light sensitivity and highly-detailed 64Mp shots in brighter settings. It also supports real-time high dynamic range (HDR) of up to 100-decibels (dB) that provides richer hues.

It is to be seen how well the upcoming Redmi smartphone and the Galaxy A series smartphone would perform in low lighting conditions and make use of the full potential of the 64MP GW1 sensor.

The Samsung ISOCELL Bright GW1 sensor is currently sampling to OEMs and is expected to enter mass production in Q2 2019.
