Redmi Note 8, 64MP & 100MP camera phones: What is Xiaomi up to?

Taking the competition to the whole new level, Xiaomi has confirmed that soon the company would be launching a Smartphone with 100MP camera.

The GW-1 CMOS sensor squeezes plenty of power into a large 1/1.7 inch sensor, enabling the same 0.8 micron pixel size as 48MP sensors.

One of the highlights of Samsung's 108MP camera sensor is that it can take in lots of light, so in low-light settings the camera can still take relatively bright 27MP images. As per a new teaser released by the brand, we can be sure that Xiaomi has hinted towards the debut of a white colour variant of the Redmi Note 7 series. This megapixel count will result in a resolution equivalent to that of a high-end DSLR camera.

They warned fellow Afghans to stay away from campaign rallies and the polls, saying such gatherings could be targeted. Ghani, stung by being excluded from the peace talks, on Sunday pleaded for national unity.

Xiaomi also revealed that it will be using Samsung's Isocell GW1 64MP image sensor in an upcoming phone in its Redmi range. The mechanism uses a high ISO in darker settings that helps reduce noise, resulting in clearer pictures. Recently, the brand has launched the Redmi K20 and Redmi K20 Pro, which are not only some of the best-looking phones in the market right but also pack impressive specifications. However the company didn't clarify whether this 100MP smartphone will have Samsung ISOCELL sensors. It further supports up to 6K video recording at 30fps. The race of "Excellent Camera with good smartphone feature" is on now. The South Korean tech giant has also reportedly outsourced some of its Chinese production to Wintech, a longtime Xiaomi supplier. It is unclear if Samsung will incorporate it into their flagship phones. It's the new white colour that was previously announced in China.

The technology was showcased in the presence of Bin Lin, President and Co-founder of Xiaomi and Jesuk Lee, Vice President, Head of Sensor Design for Samsung Electronics.
