Xiaomi teases 48 MP camera handset, might launch it in early 2019
Ready or not, the first 48 MP phone is coming. For now, we have no idea about the brand that will manage to bring it to the market, but — if nobody else is faster and the rumors turn out to be accurate — the Xiaomi Mi 9 will be the first handset to launch with such a generous main camera resolution and could arrive in the first weeks of 2019.
Samsung unveiled the first 48 MP ISOCELL sensor a few weeks ago, but it would not be surprising for some Chinese underdog to bring it to the market inside a handset at least a few months before the South Korean behemoth. Xiaomi's president has recently shown a teaser image that contains a close up of a 48 MP camera handset. Other details available? None for now, unfortunately.
