Just a day after Xiaomi talked about its 64-megapixel camera phone plans, Realme has detailed what it plans to do on the camera front over the coming months. At its camera innovation press event in New Delhi on Thursday, the company revealed it will be launching quad-camera smartphones in Realme series, Realme Pro series, and Realme X series. Realme also announced that it will be releasing its first 64-megapixel camera smartphone in India before Diwali, which means before October 27.

Realme did not share many specifics but the Chinese smartphone maker did reveal that it is using Samsung’s ISOCELL Bright GW1 sensor for the 64-megapixel camera smartphone. If a teaser published by Realme on its official Twitter account is any indication – the company’s upcoming Realme 5 and Realme 5 Pro smartphones will feature quad-camera setups, however the upcoming successor to Realme X will house the quad-camera setup with a 64-megapixel primary shooter. The company stated that it is only bringing one 64-megapixel camera phone in the near future.

Realme noted that the company has been working with Samsung for a long time, even before ISOCELL Bright GW1 went into production.

“We have been working closely with Samsung ISOCELL and created prototypes to start our development and testing work before GW1 was manufactured. Our goal was to make a camera with the highest resolution in the market,” the company said.
