Xiaomi President Lin Bin Confirmed a 48 Megapixel phone through a Weibo Post. He posted an image showing a part of the phone that confirmed a 48 Megapixel camera in the rear. The post mentioned that Lin Bin has been testing the device for few weeks that is going to get launched in January. There is no name or series attached to it that confirms any lineup. We just know that it is sure that the phone will have 48 Megapixel camera sensor in the rear.
Snapdragon 675 with the 48 Megapixel camera
This new smartphone of Xiaomi could be powered by the new Snapdragon 675 processor. We can say this because, at the time of launch of Qualcomm Snapdragon 675 at the 4G/5G summit in Hong Kong, Xiaomi India CEO Manu Kumar Jain mentioned that they are working on a phone with Snapdragon 675 has a 48-megapixel camera. Now, since we have the confirmed news from Lin Bin, it is very much possible that both of them are talking about the same device. So, it is very much possible that this new phone of Xiaomi with a 48-megapixel camera will be powered by Snapdragon 675. But what is this Snapdragon 675?
This is the processor that Qualcomm launched in the month of October at the 4G/5G summit in Hong Kong. It is based on 11nm technology with octa-core Kryo 460 CPU and Adreno 612 GPU. It has support for up to 48 Megapixel snapshots, single 25-megapixel at 30 fps with Zero Shutter Lag and dual 16-megapixel cameras at 30fps with Zero Shutter Lag. All this confirms a phone with Snapdragon 675 as Manu Jain said that they will launch a phone next year with Snapdragon 675.
But Which sensor will it use?
In July, the Sony IMX586 sensor was launched with 48 Megapixels and 0.8-micron pixel size. Sony started shipping these sensors to OEMs in the month of September. So. Xiaomi may integrate the same sensor in their upcoming phone.
So now, we know that Xiaomi is launching this new smartphone that is going to have a 48 Megapixel phone. This smartphone may have the Sony IMX586 sensor and Snapdragon 675 Soc. Also possible that it may have Snapdragon 855 but it is very much impossible. Because Lin Bin has been testing it for few weeks while the SD855 is just announced. From the image posted by Xiaomi President, it looks like this will have only one camera in the rear. However, nothing can be judged from half information.
