OPPO's sub-brand, Realme, will debut a new device on August 8. The phone will feature a quad-camera setup with the main shooter being a 64 MP sensor, the first of its kind on a smartphone. We expect the sensor in question to be the Samsung ISOCELL Bright GW1.

The Realme brand has been a success since it was launched over a year. The OPPO sub-brand was created to compete with high-value brands like Redmi and Honor, and the move looks to have been an astute one, as the company broke into the top ten in Q2 2019, shipping 4.7 million smartphone units, an outrageous 848% year-on-year rise. Realme will not be resting on its laurels either, as it has confirmed that it will debut a new device on August 8.

What makes the new device interesting are the cameras it's been teased to feature. The device, currently unnamed, will sport a quad-camera system at the back. Even more impressive is the fact that the main shooter will be a 64 MP camera; the first of its kind on a smartphone.

It's unknown what sensor that is but we expect it to be the Samsung ISOCELL Bright GW1. For one, that's the only 64 MP sensor that's been officially announced at this point. The GW1 has a 0.8um pixel size and is a 1/1.72" sensor. It will use Tetracell technology—pixel binning—to output 16 MP images.

It's unconfirmed what the other three sensors are but we expect an ultra-wide shooter, telephoto lens, and a depth sensor.
