Another teaser compares the image from the 64MP Realme phone prototype, with a 48MP camera phone from another brand, which should be the Redmi K20 or the K20 Pro with triple rear cameras. There is also a couple of zoomed images that shows more details in Realme compared to the other phone.
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.
We should know more details about Realme’s 64MP camera phone soon.
