Redmi's first 64 MP image sample looks impressive

With more than two weeks until the release of Samsung's next-gen flagships — which are also supposed to feature a 64 MP camera — Xiaomi's unveils the first 64 MP image sample taken using an upcoming Redmi device. The sensor used in its camera is the Samsung GW1 and the result looks simply great.

Back in early May, Samsung unveiled the 64 MP ISOCELL Bright GW1 sensor alongside the less powerful 48 MP ISOCELL Bright GM2. The first Samsung devices to use the high-end GW1 are expected to arrive on August 7, but it would not be surprising for Xiaomi's Redmi to be the first brand to bring a device that uses it to the market.

Chinese leakster Ice universe has just shared an image on Twitter that has been released by Redmi — most likely on Weibo, he did not mention the source — which shows a cat and a close-up that looks very sharp and without any missing details. Sadly, most comments that this image received so far are about Samsung devices and not about Xiaomi/Redmi.

This sample is only the first 64 MP shot shared by Redmi and not the first such image took on a mobile phone ever. Those who want to get a 64 MP phone will soon be able to go with Oppo — this shot was (apparently) taken using a yet-to-be-released device by this popular Chinese OEM.

Are you one of those who would only buy Samsung's 64 MP camera phone and nothing else or not? Do you think that Samsung is playing a losing hand by giving away its various innovations to be introduced to the market by other brands — the 90 Hz display that recently made its debut thanks to OnePlus, for example? As usual, don't be shy and let those comments fly.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
